Melissa Anne Miller - Recent Works

McGowan Fine Art announces the opening of “Recent Works” featuring the paintings of Melissa Anne Miller. The show will run from July 16 – August 31, with a reception on July 19 from 5 to 7 PM.  This is free and open to the public.

“Recent Works” will feature the quiet scenes by Ms. Miller that have become familiar to the people of New Hampshire and synonymous with the city of Concord. Her heightened colors and sense of light make her work distinctive and a favorite with everyone.  Even those who are unfamiliar with Concord’s crowded streets and turn of the century downtown admire her paintings. They have a universal feel of home, which appeals to people, wherever they are from. Miller will have oil and acrylic paintings on display.  

Miller often revisits the same scene to capture different times of day, and different seasons. A cool, blue autumn sky, and a dramatic shadow cast by a barren tree in “White House with Tree, Late Fall” is contrasted by the warm early morning light. The same tree is now in full bloom, revealing little bits of sky, in “White House with Tree, Spring”. Daubs of sunlight peek through leaves.

Miller is currently collaborating with the Concord Public Library Foundation and Puritan Press to produce a series of bookmarks featuring snippets of her paintings, themed to the changing seasons. Her paintings have always been collected by many businesses and firms throughout New Hampshire- most notably Southern NH University, TD Banknorth in Manchester, NH Historical Society and Rath Young &; Pignatelli’s office in Concord.

This exhibit will be on display at McGowan Fine Art at 10 Hills Avenue in Concord, NH. Please call Sarah Chaffee at 603-225-2515 for more information or visit our website at, or contact at Hours: T-F 10-6, and Sat 10-2 and by appointment.
