A nude, bird-headed woman, on a round, prickly purple seat, seems trapped in her own limbo-like “Soul Asylum,” despite a sculptural open door, inviting her to join a bird on the wing outside it, in the acrylic.
Strange, too, and bordering on fantasy, is Miller's oil of two nude, bird-headed, “Star Crossed” ballet dancers, holding a difficult pose, their muscular bodies emerging dramatically from the dark background.
The Miller exhibit is highly recommended during its run through Dec. 2, along with a show of modern neo-primitive jewelry by Zeke and Marty Zewick of Edom, Texas. Miller will offer a painting demonstration from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday. A reception is planned from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Nov. 30.
