The Stokes County Arts Council presents the works of artist Anthony Miller at The Jayebird Gallery at Hanging Rock State Park. His exhibit of digital art will be on display in November and December.
Miller’s interest in digital art began in 2005, when he discovered the ability to draw as one would with pencil or paint, only in a computerized environment. His work is primarily fantasy oriented with painted landscapes, cartooning, and explorations of the abstract psyche.
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Miller and his family relocated to North Carolina in 2006, finally settling in Walnut Cove in 2013. Diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at age 5, Miller says, “My personal interests and thought processes were a complete mystery to everyone around me. I discovered that I had a knack for drawing and decided to start cultivating that skill from 1998 onwards. My parents began to homeschool me in middle school and have allowed me to cultivate my interest in art, teaching me to draw with more finesse and better style.”
Miller is currently studying toward earning a degree in Digital Effects and Animation at Forsyth Technical Community College.
An opening reception and artist meet and greet will be held on Sunday, November 4th from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Jayebird Gallery, located inside the Hanging Rock State Park Visitor’s Center at 1790 Hanging Rock Park Road, Danbury. For more information, call Stokes Arts at 336-593-8159.
