Whitman College will host a reception for artist Steve Miller at 4 p.m. Friday in the Memorial Building, third floor, 345 Boyer Ave.
Miller's exhibit, "Tabletop Meditations: The Art of Steve Miller" showcases his paintings and ceramics work. The exhibit runs through March 26 and is free and open to the public.
His works, while utilizing traditional motifs, subtly integrate modern concepts into their composition and design. Also apparent is an appreciation of Asian aesthetics, particularly Japanese influences, which Miller especially credits for his attention to an object's movement within the picture plane.
Miller graduated from Walla Walla College in 2001 with a bachelor of arts degree in fine art. In addition to his professional art practice, he also has taught ceramics intermittently at Walla Walla University over the last seven years.
