ASU Museum and Fine Arts Gallery
to open with works of Sarah Miller
March 3, 2006 -- The Fine Arts Center Gallery and
Museum at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro announce the “2006
Masters Thesis Exhibition” featuring the work of Sarah Elizabeth Miller.
This two part exhibition, which opens Tuesday, March 7, and continues
through Friday, March 17, will offer a look at her recent work. An
opening reception will be held on March 7 from 4 – 7 p.m. at both the
Fine Arts Center and the museum.
The work, which will be displayed in both galleries, focuses on concerns
such as vulnerability and physical and emotional maintenance and
comfort. In an attempt to relate to the audience Miller utilizes
materials that are commonly associated with topics like cosmetics,
bandages, and handkerchiefs.
A native of Pocahontas, Miller now lives in Jonesboro and plans to
graduate with a master of arts in May. She is currently the Bradbury
Gallery graduate assistant and also serves as the curatorial assistant
for the Hardwired Cafe. Her mixed media objects and paintings have been
presented in solo and group exhibitions throughout Arkansas and in
Memphis, Tenn., and Wakefield, R.I.
While pursuing her undergraduate degree, Miller was recognized with
scholarships and a graduate assistantship. She received a bachelor of
fine arts in December 2004. She has also studied at Scuola Lorenzo
De’Medici and the Florence University for the Arts in Florence, Italy,
and Teiko University in Maastricht, Netherlands.
Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The
exhibitions are admission-free and open to the public. For additional
