Visiting Artists and Critics Series: Danielle Rae Miller
The UCCS Visiting Artists & Critics Series enters its eighth season with a virtual artist talk and by-appointment-only exhibition at the GOCA121 downtown gallery.
Virtual Artist Talk: Wednesday, September 30, 4:30pm (free but reservation required – link below)
Exhibition Dates: September 21 – December 4, 2020 (individual and group appointments required in advance)
Danielle Rae Miller received her B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design, and her M.F.A. from the University of New Mexico. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally in both solo and group exhibitions, and is included in public and private collections, including the State of New Mexico’s Art in Public Places Program, The City of Albuquerque’s 1% for the Arts Public Art Collection, and the Arjo Wiggins Paper Corporation. Miller teaches at Central New Mexico Community College and the Institute of American Indian Arts.
Danielle Rae Miller’s works are dense compositions of plant, animal and insect life realistically drawn with fine line ink on both sides of translucent vellum to create transparency, depth and interaction between elements. Miller uses images with pre-attached meanings in our human mythologies—snakes, bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, beetles, roses, sunflowers, the human heart, ribcage and pelvis—to engage an emotional response in viewers, to gently nudge individual and cultural memories, and hint at broader connections between all forms of life on this planet.
Over the past eight years, the series co-produced by the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art and UCCS Visual Art & Art History programs has invited artists and scholars of national significance to the UCCS campus to present public lectures and meet with undergraduate students in classes and workshop settings.
The virtual artist talk is free, but pre-registration will be required. Registration is now open through the Ent Center for the Arts Box Office and at https://tickets.uccspresents.org/2355/2384. Registration deadline is 12:00 PM on the day of the event. All registrants will be emailed a Zoom link a few hours prior to the start of the event to access the virtual program.
The exhibition, titled “Sacrum,” runs from September 21 – December 4 at 121 South Tejon. Individual and group appointments are required in advance. Please email email@example.com to arrange a viewing.
