|Art exhibit opens at Third Street Gallery|
The exhibition “Portrait of a Pouting Monk and Other Paintings” by Fargo artist Johnathan Miller will open Thursday, Sept. 4, at the Third Street Gallery on Kittson, 310 Kittson Ave., Grand Forks. The exhibition will kick off with a free public artist reception from 7 to 9 p.m. The exhibit runs until Oct. 10.
“Portrait of a Pouting Monk and Other Paintings” features oil paintings with pencil drawings. Miller was born in 1977 in Grand Forks, and had an early interest in drawing. By the age of 15 he began to explore painting and photography and was selling work in both mediums by his early twenties. Miller says, ”The look of rough drawings has always been appealing to me. With these paintings, I’m reaching for the look and feel of the sketch.” These images are made up of strangers, friends and sketchy characters, brought out by the brush and the oil in loosely painted, often abstract, portraits.”
