The Society of Bluffton Artists Gallery welcomes Gayle Miller as the featured artist from January 5 – 31. Her show “Les Feminine” presents a bountiful selection of beautiful ladies depicted in flowing watercolor. The paintings are varied, colorful and lighthearted. With confident brushstrokes Gayle tickles our imaginations with her fun and unique take on these lovelys. About Gayle’s paintings one of her admirers points out “Life would be that much more dull for the rest of us without Gayle’s art. There’s so much joy in watching the playful dance with style, color and emotion.”
Gayle received her undergraduate degree in Business Administration and Management from the University of Maryland, but her favorite classes were drawing and graphic arts. As an adult her professional worlds of medicine and insurance took her to Washington DC, Maryland and California where her love of art brought her to Apparel Arts of San Fransisco. At AASF, Gayle delved into clothing design and patterning. She found a second creative outlet – watercolor painting. She took watercolor classes in San Mateo, CA and Bloomington, IL, experienced plein air painting with Myna Wacknov in Brugge, Belgium, and worked with many talented teachers in Bloomington where she was involved in two art salons at the Eaton Gallery. She co-founded Inside Out: Accessible Art, a Bloomington co-op gallery.
Since relocating to the Lowcountry Gayle has been very involved in the art community, joining All About Art in Sun City, as well as SOBA where she is a board member and efficient volunteer. Her work is also shown at Salt Gallery in Beaufort and Studio B Marketplace in Bluffton.
Please join us to meet Gayle, enjoy the bright and fun “Les Feminine” exhibit, and the work of over 100 other member artists at an opening reception with refreshments, Sunday, January 10 from 3-5 pm.
