Carrie Garner’s Galleria d’Arte is proud to welcome back renowned contemporary artist JD Miller. Join us on Saturday, May 13 from 7 to 10pm as we debut Miller’s newest creations in “Teale We Meet Again.” The full exhibit will be on display in Carrie Garner’s Galleria d’Arte through June 7, 2006. Galleria d’Arte is especially pleased to count Miller as one of its permanent artists, with a number of his works on permanent display.

A long-time friend and mentor to Carrie Garner, JD Miller returns to Galleria d’Arte in what promises to be a vibrant celebration of art. Experience Miller’s emotional explosion of sculptural oils rich in light, form, and color which create a unique mood and a signature ambiance.

JD Miller was the featured performing artist at MPAC’s hugely successful “Black and White Gala” on April 1, 2006. Miller created “McKinney Water Lilies” (20” x 24”, unframed) at the MPCA gala, and this painting will be a featured work in “Teale We Meet Again.”

Miller’s reputation has increased dramatically in recent years as recognition of his oil sculpting technique has become widely acknowledged by both artists and collectors alike. JD Miller is represented not only at his Reflection FineArt gallery in Dallas’ Arts District and at Carrie Garner’s Galleria d’Arte in McKinney, but also in fine art galleries throughout the United States.

Miller resides in Dallas, Texas where he contributes to diverse community and charitable activities. Counted among his many beneficiaries is the LoveLife Foundation, co-founded by Carrie Garner. LoveLife Foundation is an organization for at-risk children. Garner devotes much of her time and energy to many charitable endeavors such as the LifeLife Foundation and the Cross Timbers Youth Orchestra.

Live entertainment by the Quentin Hope Trio, great fare and spirits will make
May 13, 2006 an evening to remember.
