Current Exhibit–  Steven Miller Beautiful Times”
Nov 2 – Dec 14, 2019

Recent paintings by the extraordinary colorist and New York City based contemporary abstract artist Steven Miller will be on display at Washington’s Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery.

Miller maintains studios in NYC and in Litchfield County, CT.  He often travels outside of the country and is influenced by the various international cultures that he comes into contact with.

Mr. Miller works in oils on canvas in combination with images inspired by nature. He works in a series of paintings, usually working on two to three at a time. He states that “These works still hold a strong fascination for me and continue to provide me with boundless inspiration. The work I produce is all about color, form and simplicity.” Life quite simply as a force of nature captured on canvas.

Steven Miller has exhibited his work across the United States from New York to Los Angeles, and in Europe from London to Cologne. He is a Vinalhaven Fellow, a Rubenstein Scholar, and a Parsons School of Design Scholar.  His work has been featured in “Sex in the City”, on the tv sitcom “Frasier” and is frequently featured in major Hollywood films.

Miller’s work is also in many private and public collections in the United States, Europe and Asia. His work is in the permanent collections of the University of Virginia’s Bayly Art Museum, the Savannah College of Art & Design Museum in Georgia, Chase Manhattan Bank, Walden International and most recently to MOMA’s collection.

Next Exhibit–  Mira Reflections” by Christine (Mira) Vitarello
Dec 21 – Jan 25, 2020

Christine Vitarello (Mira), a contemporary fine artist and educator, lives in New Milford, with her husband and two children. Mira began her work as an artist and educator after earning degrees in Fine art and Art education at the Pratt Institute and the College of New Rochelle. Through the use of oil paint and soft pastels, her current style is a blend of impressionism and modern contemporary representational art. Her exhibit will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery in Washington from December 21 through January 25, 2020.

Vitarello tells us “As a young girl, drawing and painting were my constant, offering me peace and an avenue to express my loves. Presently, I paint to connect with my surroundings, the people in my life, and to archive special moments I have experienced.”
