West Bank Bistro, 340 S. Lorimer, Cape Girardeau, MO, will feature Katherine Miller’s exhibition Soft Noises, a collection of prints and mixed-media collages made within the past year exploring vague narratives that traverse the avenues of retrospection. The show will run from June 7th-July 31st with an opening reception on Friday, June 7th from 5pm-8pm. Drinks will be available for purchase.
The work in Soft Noises looks at reality through the context of the ephemerial past. Uninterested in the future, Miller focuses on how the past shapes the present in both situational and emotive ways. Conceptual vessels of narrative scenarios meet material practices that act as arrows pointing to what was, to what happened, and to the shaping of things. Original prints help narrate this concept with tangible imagery in addition to a series of collages that focus on the materials that bring these ideas to life.
Katherine Miller is a printmaking student at Southeast Missouri State University. She is a recent contestant in the National Society of Arts & Letters’ 2013 Career Awards Competition in Art: Printmaking and has exhibited work nationally and internationally in such places as the Opera Art Gallery in Cairo, Egypt and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
