I’m impressed with artists who, after years of being a professional creative, go back to college. A recent example is Douglas Miller. He has won three LEO Weekly Readers’ Choice Awards for Best Visual Artist since 2010, and the Kentucky Arts Council’s Al Smith Individual Artist Fellowship in 2015. And, still, he decided he wanted the rigorous training graduate school provides, so he enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts program at UofL’s Hite Art Institute. “Title” is his graduate exhibition, featuring approximately 100 drawings as well as an animated project. Miller is well known for his partially-finished fragments. What’s on the paper is usually highly detailed, yet incomplete. He calls them “visual notations,” stating “each drawing relates to each other, but also counteracts.” The opening reception is on Friday, April 27 from 6-8 p.m.
