BEST PRACTICES: A fine arts Invitational featuring the works of 30 artists of local, national and international renown, curated around an individual and collective investigation into what may constitute best practices in the world of fine art.

Nearly every professional industry discusses best practices; now is the time for the arts industry to weigh in. There is no greater agent for social change than that which art provides. For the sake of those who come after us, teaching the children well is the core reason for best practices; the best artists of today are the ones who are actively tilling future ground.

In this show, thirty artists and one curator embrace future generations with works and words that are emblematic of their own best practices as arts professionals. A daring and evocative show, Best Practicesattempts to blend technical mastery with clear ethical ideals into an interactive construct that addresses some of the universal concerns we currently face, with an ever-present urge toward remediation and progress.

Artists: William Allen, Michael Baksa, Teresa Baksa, Howard Barnes, John Cira, Romolo Del Deo, Salvatore Del Deo, Joseph Diggs, Jane Eccles, Laura Fantini, Deborah Forman, Raquel Fornasaro, Milisa Galazzi, Anne Garton, Jon Goldman, Jill Hedrick, Grace Hopkins, Sarah Lutz, Joanne Mattera, Wayne Miller, Richard Neal, Ulla Neigenfind, Cecilia Rossey, Peter Roux, Jackie deRuyter, Kathleen Sidwell, Alan Soffer, Libbie Soffer, Dan Wheldon and James Wolf.  Curated by Susan Danton.

Exhibition:  ANNE GARTON & ULLA NEIGENFIND

Working within the Luminism tradition, Anne Garton’s painting style stresses the emotional force of a scene versus rendering a facade of features, underscoring the ambient components and capturing the very aura of Nature’s will to express itself.  Far beyond the constraints of material depictions, Garton takes the viewer to a place where the beauty of Nature is truth, and that same truth is, in fact, beauty.

Excitement, mystery and sheer pleasure inform the abstract paintings of Ulla Neigenfind.  Her process is driven by a visceral urge to touch, rub and scratch until works emerge that simmer in sensuality.  This is romance of an utterly higher nature.

Exhibition Dates: October 6 – November 3

 

GALLERY BRIEF CLOSURE: October 19 – 22, 2017

Miller White will be closed for the long weekend in order to represent the gallery artists at the 2017 Boston International Fine Art Show held at the Boston Cyclorama, 539 Tremont Street, Boston, MA.  Miller White will show at Booth #3.

 

Solo Exhibition: HOWARD BARNES

Color Field paintings in the tradition of the Washington Color School, Washington, D.C.

An esteemed illustrator and studio painter, Howard Barnes’ approach to painting is a synthesis of keen observation of nature, personal experience and immutable love of color. He studied with Paul Reed, an original member of the Washington Color School … giving him a true understanding of “color without boundaries” (a tenet of the school) and a muted palette.”  Laura Shabott, Artscope Magazine, May/June 2017

Exhibition Dates: September 1 – September 29, 2017

 

SPRING 2017 INVITATIONAL

EXPRESSING FREEDOM: Transcendence Through Art

Freedom of expression is key to the development, dignity and fulfillment of every person on the planet. It is the ability to state your frame of mind respectfully and peacefully, and allow others that same right. The importance of this is self-evident yet, tragically, masses of people are today prevented from doing so by forces outside of their real or perceived control.

When I think of the relationship between artists and society — and for me the question is always what it could be, rather than what it is — I think of the word “transcendent.” It is a word I never use in public, but it’s the only word I can come up with to describe what I think about the role of artists. By transcendent, I mean that the artist transcends the immediate. Transcends the here and now. Transcends the madness of the world. Transcends terrorism and war. The artist thinks, acts, performs music, and writes outside the framework that society has created. The artist may do no more than give us beauty, laughter, passion, surprise, and drama. I don’t mean to minimize these activities by saying the artist can do no more than this. The artist needn’t apologize, because by doing this, the artist is telling us what the world should be like, even if it isn’t that way now. The artist is taking us away from the moments of horror that we experience everyday — some days more than others — by showing us what is possible. But the artist can and should do more. In addition to creating works of art, the artist is also a citizen and a human being … What most of us must be involved in — whether we teach or write, make films, write films, direct films, play music, act, whatever we do — has to not only make people feel good and inspired and at one with other people around them, but also has to educate a new generation to do this very modest thing: change the world.” ― Howard Zinn, Artists in Times of War and Other Essays, 2003

By virtue of Howard Zinn’s words above, the artists of this exhibition have given us images and words that reflect his conviction that there is no greater catalyst for change than that which art provides. By allowing their works to act as agents of their own ideals and values, the artists hope to inspire others to freely, respectfully and peacefully do the same.

Guest Artists: Kenneth Lockwood, Anita Loomis, Tom Odell, Joyce Pommer.
Guest Poets: John Bonanni, Mary Ellen Redmond, Albert Starkey, Lauren Wolk

Friday, April 28: Gallery Talk and Community Art & Word Projects start at 4-5pm, prior to Opening Reception 5-7pm

For those who would like to view the show prior to the typical crush of a public reception, come to our gallery talk. Meet the artists, hear the poets and examine the theme of Freedom of Expression, together. Viewers will then become active participants by expressing their own ideals for freedom on two community-based murals through inspired words and images. Drawing and writing materials will be provided, and no prior artistic experience is required — only a love for freedom and a willingness to share it. So that the gift keeps on giving, the action and testimonials will be memorialized for sharing on social media for an infinite audience to enjoy, learn from and pass forward — until the world is free and at peace.

In partnership with ArtSpring Cape Cod and ArtWeek Boston

Exhibition Dates: April 28 – June 16

HOLIDAY 2016:  SAVING GAIA: THE SEVEN THUNDERS

MWFA artists and guests visually interpret a film script to create a film trailer

Miller White Fine Arts Gallery is excited to offer an exhibition that breaks down the barrier between still and moving images in a significant and surprising project.  The exceptional creative talents of more than twenty artists will exhibit their visual interpretations of a film script written by acclaimed screenwriter, Rory Marcus.

The Seven Thunders is a thrilling sci-fi adventure in which young heroes must save all life on the planet while genetically engineered suprahumans attempt to destroy the earth’s atmosphere by accelerating global warming.

The artists will express their deeply felt feelings about the dangers to the planet through artworks in oil, print, collage, and photography in their individual styles.  These stunning images will then become the visuals for the short trailer for the film, produced by Marcus and shown at the gallery throughout the exhibition.

Based on science and written by Marcus more than ten years ago, The Seven Thunders is an odyssey of extraordinary youths that reveals an astonishingly prescient scenario of the risks for our future that we can see unfolding today.  This exhibit will raise questions that artists and scientists will address in gallery talks throughout the term of the show.

Exhibition Dates: November 4, 2016 – January 13, 2017

FIRST ARTIST RECEPTION: Friday, November 4th from 4 to 7 p.m.

CLOSING RECEPTION: Friday, January 13th from 5 to 7 p.m. featuring Special Guests: 

Dave McGlinchey, Communications Director of Woods Hole Research Center; Ed DeWitt, Executive Director of the Association to Preserve Cape Cod; Ian Ives, Director of Massachusetts Audubon Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary; Susan Starkey, Climate Justice Activist with the Green Sanctuary of the Barnstable Unitarian Church; and Natalia von Hausen, Director of Cape Cod Green Drinks.

In Conjunction with the 35th Anniversary of Cape Cod Museum of Art…

AT THE CROSSROADS:  SIX NARRATIVES AT THE INTERSECTION OF IDENTITY AND COMMUNITY

At the Crossroads features six Cape Cod-based artists delving into different social ecosystems represented by the Natural World, the Family, the Village, the Odyssey, the Mask and the Friend. The linking common theme is how identity and community interact and are ultimately preserved, archived and displayed for a dialogue.

The curator, Susan Danton, suggests that the question “Who are you?” has never been more relevant nor more difficult to answer than it is today. Through the plethora of electronically transmitted information available in the blink of an eye, each of us is unrelentingly hounded by the many competing forces that want to define us as “them.” Often, the din results in an internal split consciousness, which discord then provokes conflict within our relationships. There is indeed a certain glamour intrinsic to the sheer immediacy of information flow, but there is also a resident danger in the crisis of glibness it creates. In other words, to answer the above question, we must discover where we end and others begin.

At the Crossroads offers the viewer an opportunity examine these junctures, as well as revolutionize his/her self-awareness in relation to them.
