~JAMES MILLER & friends . . . at the DEDALUS FOUNDATION,
JAMES MILLER . . . had a wonderful debut NYC show just as the season closed – last June 2015.
the show seemed so full of promise, and attracted so many new faces, bound to be taking over . . that I hesitated to post about it in real time, and leave it behind.
so here is it, where it belongs !!
in the forefront of the new Fall season, enjoy !!

I had the opportunity . . to visit JAMES MILLER, and see his work several times – over his recently completed, class of 2014, Graduate Studies in Fine Art, MFA Painting/Studio Program – at Yale.
upon completion of his graduate degree at Yale . . .
JAMES was awarded the 2014 Dedalus Foundation MFA Fellowship in Painting & Sculpture this past Sept 2014.
James Miller grew up in the Pacific Northwest – and is now working and living in NYC.
