ASU Museum and Fine Arts Gallery
to open with works of Sarah Miller

March 3, 2006 -- The Fine Arts Center Gallery and the Mascara Drawing by Sarah MillerASU 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.

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 information, contact the Department of Art at 870-972-3050 or Sarah Miller at 870-931-2377.
