The Saint Vincent Gallery will present “Saint Vincent: Visions of the Past/Works of Jim Miller,” from Jan. 19 to Feb. 19.
The exhibit will open with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
Pennsylvania artist Jim Miller, a resident of Greensburg, specializes in fine art prints, paintings, photography and multimedia creations.
He received a bachelor of arts degree in fine arts from Saint Vincent College and a master of fine arts degree from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
A former member of the Saint Vincent monastic community, where he served in roles as diverse as bookbinder and assistant beekeeper, Miller drew artistic inspiration from the beauty of the campus buildings and setting. He has a special interest in recreating archival photographs from Saint Vincent’s past.
In addition, Miller taught art on the college level, wrote and illustrated books on history and archeology, founded an artists’ cooperative living/working/exhibition space and exhibited extensively. He has worked as an archaeological field technician on both historic and prehistoric sites and was the 1996 recipient of the Eben Demersat Trust Award grant for artists and archaeologists.
The Saint Vincent Gallery is located on the third floor of the Robert S. Carey Student Center on the campus of Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. and by appointment. The Gallery is closed Mondays.
Because the opening reception for this exhibit is being held on the same evening as the opening of the exhibit at the McCarl Gallery, the Saint Vincent Neighborhood Trolley will be operating that evening so that guests can visit both exhibits.
