Works from the Estate of Gregory Miller
February 10 - March 24
“Many of the works in this show, Resonant Fragments, incorporate fragments of prior pieces into
new ones. This synthesis is a physical manifestation of an attempt to subsume ambiguity and
attain clarity. The work is made through an activity of intense seeing: seeing into the depths
of color, looking past outer distractions to meaning that resides within deconstructed forms,
listening to the hum of murmuring color.
A couple of the pieces are earlier thread works that have resurfaced after receiving renewed
interest this year. It is gratifying to re-visit past pieces with new eyes; it is an integration that
lays a foundation for moving forward…”

Works from the Estate of
Gregory Miller was well known as a distintive member of the Dallas art community and for his
mesmerizing sculptural ceramic installations. His style encompassed various forms and finishes
to create a metaphoric microcosm of a variety of subjects. Gregory used an array of clay
bodies, ranging from fine translucent porcelain to earthy textural stone-wear, with each
piece hand formed and embellished with textures, mixed media and glazes to create the
desired effect. These pieces were then combined together to bring about installations
inspired by the natural and built environment.
This special exhibition of Gregory Miller's ceramic works is an exceptional opportunity to
observe or aquire works from his legacy as an artist of 27 years.
Gregory's work is part of numerous private and public collections, including M Crowd
Restaurants, Baylor Medical Center McKinney, TCJ Ventures, The Ritz-Carlton Amelia
Island, Granite Properties, The W Residences Dallas, Philipe Stark's The House Residences,
Kaiser Permanente in Chino Hills, CA, Boca Rotan Marriott at Boca Center, and Prebys
Cardiovascular Center at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, CA.
