Artists feted at reception tonight

February 17, 2011 |

The Davis Community Gallery will host an exhibit of photography by local artists Anne Miller and Kimberly Balog, opening with an artists’ reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m. today at the Davis Community Gallery at the Davis Community Clinic, 2051 John Jones Road in Davis.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays. The Davis Community Clinic is one of five CommuniCare Health Centers clinic sites in Yolo County providing health care to those in need since 1972. The photographs will be on exhibit at the Davis Community Gallery through May 6.

Miller was born in Los Angeles, but her family returned to their small-town roots in rural Iowa when she was 9. Growing up in farm country sparked a lifelong affinity for nature and agricultural landscapes. After studying art and music at the University of Northern Iowa, she earned a master’s degree in music performance at the University of Iowa.

She taught briefly in Iowa and then moved back to California, where she taught music at UC Davis and played flute in the Tobrini Woodwind Quintet. She married and settled in Woodland to raise a family, and subsequently embarked on a second career as a software engineer.

As a photographer, Miller is largely self-taught. She began shooting with a 35mm SLR camera and learned traditional black-and-white printing in a home darkroom made from a converted bathroom.  The development of increasingly powerful tools for digital imaging eventually led to combining her interests in computing and photography.  She now works exclusively with digital and uses a variety of image editing software to realize her evolving vision as an artist.

She names Wassily Kandinsky, Georgia O’Keefe, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham, and Lee Friedlander as the artists who’ve most influenced her, yet Miller’s work is shaped mostly by her own imagination and powers of observation.  She describes photography as a means for her to explore and to share her vision of the overlooked beauty and subtle mystery that usually go unnoticed in our everyday world.

The artists donate a percentage from each sale of their works exhibited at the Davis Community Gallery to help support services at CommuniCare Health Centers.
