Do not miss closing art reception for Edward Bear Miller at the Foundry Gallery on February 1, 4-6 pm.
Rooted in the plein-air tradition of Courbet, Manet, Homer, and Bellows, Edward Bear Miller's plein-air oil paintings of beloved DC places have been a staple of his artistic career. Miller's latest group of paintings contain more of his "staple," realist renderings of the Key Bridge and the Long Railroad Bridge. Miller’s paint is applied thickly and loosely in the manner of George Bellows or Van Gogh.

"As I build (and, yes, staple) my larger canvases to contain my dreamier visions, I’m finding wild narrative figures creeping and swooping into the picture. I enter the rich, primordial world of metaphysical "gravy," says the artist. It’s a subconscious realm inhabited by archetypes: ancient fish, water-babies, water serpents, fellow primates, ancestors, and the occasional songbird. His art depicts 21st-century admiration for our devastated natural world.

Meet the artist on Saturday, February 1st, from 4-6pm.
