Maryland artist to be featured at Birds in Art

Posted:

WAUSAU (WAOW) - A Maryland artist who portrays the world around him in shades of black, white and gray will be honored as the Woodson Art Museum's master artist during its 38th annual Birds in Art exhibition this fall.

Terry Miller of Tokoma Park, Md.,is the 33rd master artist, museum director Kathy Foley said Wednesday. His works have been included in Birds in Art 21 times, she said.

"Terry Miller is the consummate artist - a keen observer, articulate spokesman, and superb draftsman. While he is differentiated by his medium, he has mastered it, yielding graphite works that are without equal," Foley said in a statement.

Miller's artwork was featured in a solo exhibition called Unknown Bridges at the museum in 2008 and in a book published to complement the exhibition.

The 38th Birds in Art exhibition opens Sept. 7 and continues through Nov. 10. It will feature more than 100 original paintings, sculptures and graphics created within the last two years by artists from throughout the world.

More than a dozen of Miller's works will be featured.

"I hope this personal recognition for my drawings will serve to enhance and further a wider appreciation for all others who work in charcoal, scratchboard, graphite and the like," Miller said in a statement.

Miller was born in Iowa, spent his school years in northern New Jersey and graduated from The Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts with a degree in design in the late 1960s. After working for several years as an architectural draftsman in New York, he spent the next decade as a special education teacher near Atlanta while honing his graphite drawing skills in his spare time. He became a full-time artist in 1990.
