Present and Retro, a retrospective of P.R. Miller’s work, chronicles his extensive career and explores his three principal identities as a junk man, artist, and wizard. “The Grizzled Wizard” works with recycled scraps, reimagining them as large-scale, whimsical sculptures. This exhibition includes works made from metal, glass, clay, and more, chronicling the artist’s journey over the course of his decades-long career.
Saturday, August 14 at 2 p.m. join mixed media artist Helen Wilson to learn about the artistic process behind her landscape collages and how she gains inspiration from local flora at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to create works in her solo exhibition, “Botanical Voices.”

In Helen Wilson’s Botanical Voices, mixed media come together in highly textured collage landscapes inspired by local flora. Wilson is influenced by the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which is near her current home. She also references the avocado trees in her grandmother’s Southern California garden. This exhibition gives a voice to the botanical world as the artist believes that plants and trees have much to teach us.

Chris Hoot’s Sim[plex]cities: Digital Constructs, Visual Music, Liquid Landscapes showcases the artist’s explorations in layering digital photography, graphics, and marbling techniques to produce abstract landscapes, cityscapes, and soundscapes. The works in the exhibition rely on the process of multiplying techniques using searching, researching, analyzing, finding, fragmenting, combining, discovering, and synthesizing. Hoot’s experimental compositions take place on a variety of materials, including paper and canvas.

Emerging artists from Kent, Ohio participate in Included But Not Limited To, which celebrates the diversity of ceramics and plays with expectations of craft within the fine arts. Functional and decorative works challenge the limitations of surface and form in traditional and contemporary ways. Practices including painting, weaving, embroidery, woodworking, metal fabrication, and technology in conjunction with ceramics complicate the language of craft in fine arts through functional objects, sculpture, and installation.
