Edward Bear Miller’s latest batch of oil paintings contains more of his staple realist renderings of Key Bridge and the Long Railroad Bridge. He has also created some wavier, more far-out meditations on local trees and threatened fish species. Miller’s paint is applied thickly and loosely in the manner of George Bellows or Van Gogh. Also in the show are wilderness pieces he painted while in Colorado and the Adirondacks this summer. All of the works are vibrant, muscular, and earthy.
