ANNUAL GALA EXHIBITION
Daniel Tucker Gallery
Opening Reception during ArtWalk on Thursday, January 3, 2019 from 5-8pm.
Chris Miller was born in California and studied studio art in various colleges, including Fort Lewis College and CU. Near the end of a short career in film he discovered Telluride and moved here with his family in 1992. Since 2013 he divides his time between San Francisco, Napa Valley and Telluride. An avid cyclist, he and his wife Catherine McNamee owned Moots Cycles from 1995 to 2015.
Chris has been painting continuously since college, focusing on landscapes and abstract work. “Landscape studies allow you to interpret the world you see and recast it as your unique view, abstraction brings unseen and unknown elements together and creates a dialog between form, color and texture to explore the essential in our experience. Painting is a journey, and I’m not sure where it’s going to take me, but there’s an exploration going on, that’s a kind of personal examination and certainly autobiographical.”
Over the years Chris has studied at Ah Haa and Anderson Ranch. This is his first solo exhibition.
The artists will be featured at our Annual New Year’s Eve Gala, where the Daniel Tucker Gallery is transformed into a formal dining room for a four-course, plated, sit-down dinner catered by one of Telluride’s exceptional chefs.
