November Artists of the Month: Opening Reception

8 Nov. 2017 Posted by staff

Join us on Saturday, November 11th from 4-6pm at the Dedham Square Artist Guild to meet jewelry artist, Barbara Trainer and painter, Matt Miller, our November Artists of the Month. Come and enjoy refreshments and see new works by both artists.

About The Artists:

Matt Miller started drawing at an early age and was often seen with pencil, pen, or charcoal in hand. He took several drawing classes at this time, however as he grew and adulthood came upon him, a long hiatus in his art took place. Later, as an accomplished adult, he took up drawing and oil painting with renewed zeal, studying with several skilled local artists, taking classes at a number of local studios and the Rhode Island School of Design. He came across the artwork of David Leffel and became heavily influenced by his work, working with and attending numerous training sessions over the next few years with Mr. Leffel and his wife Sherrie McGraw in California and in Taos, NM.
