Texas Artists Coalition Artist Spotlight
Richard Miller received his undergraduate degree at the Maryland Institute College of Art, receiving a BFA in Printmaking in 1984. From there, Richard continued his studies, earning a Master of Fine Arts degree from Texas Christian University. While at TCU, Miller spent two years at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, later moving on to spend 14 years at the Amon Carter Museum, also in Fort Worth, as a member of the museum’s publications program. While at the Carter, Miller began his teaching career which now spans 28 years in both Art History and Studio disciplines.
Originally beginning as a printmaker, Miller’s work evolved from traditional prints to extensive explorations of monoprint and monotype techniques, under the guidance and inspiration of Master Printer Bob Blackburn. Eventually, unique print impressions would lead Richard toward a serious involvement in painting. Most recently, these paths would coincide in his current digital images.
Recent years have seen Richard Miller involved in numerous juried and group exhibitions, collaborative projects, as well as mounting two major solo exhibitions, Audioscapes in 2014 and Chromaesthesia in 2015. Richard was one of 34 artists selected from over 650 entries in the prestigious Art in the Metroplex Juried Exhibition held in Fort Worth in October 2015. Miller was awarded the Academic Excellence Award as an Art Educator for North Lake College in 2014, and was one of 5 finalists for the DFW Art Awards, Abstract Artist of the Year.
