On June 3rd, The Miller Gallery will present its next exhibition, “Small Delicacies,” a show featuring Greenville’s Teresa Roche and Charleston’s Rachael Nerney during the next Charleston Gallery Association Artwalk. The exhibit will include both original artwork and home décor designed by Roche and Nerney.
The gallery will kick things off with an opening celebration from 5 pm to 8 pm on June 3rd. The exhibition will remain on display through June 24th.
A statement from the artists:
“It is overlooked moments of beauty that we are most inspired by. The way wildflowers bloom on the side of the road. Herbs sprouting in terra cotta containers. Seasonal produce spreads at the weekend farmer’s market. It is fascinating how they expand across so many purposes – home, health, beauty and healing. Rare moments and delicate situations are often celebrated or honored by an offering of flowers – a symbol of blissful pleasure. As our lives become more boxed in and the environment more threatened, we become painfully aware of the delicacies of cultivated earth, freshwater streams and the living expression of creativity. Like gardens, our children are precious and don’t blossom without cultivation. Small moments in the garden, at the table or with our loved ones are small delicacies and should be looked upon and celebrated as just that. Our work celebrates these moments in our lives over the past year.”
Roche is a painter, collagist, and textile designer based out of her gallery/studio in Greenville. Her work has graced the walls of both corporate and private collections. She has been exhibiting at The Miller Gallery since 2017.
“As a painter, my work depicts sun-drenched southern imagery and faded articles of the past,” Roche said. “My creative process begins with these everyday, mundane, deteriorated pieces and is punctuated with fleeting moments from my surroundings, memories of my childhood and everyday life.”
Nerney’s artwork can be found throughout the Southeast. She focuses on culinary and botanical inspired subjects. From sliced citrus destined for cocktails to fresh herbs from the garden, Nerney captures the fleeting moments and memories we share with food through vibrant color, light and pattern. Her goal is to spread joy to communities with her whimsical illustrations. For “Small Delicacies,” Nerney will be joining Roche by exploring textile design alongside her original paintings.
All artwork will be available for sale online and in person by June 1st. A preview of all available works will be sent to Miller Gallery’s newsletter subscribers. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website themillergallery.com.
The Miller Gallery is located at 149 1/2 East Bay Street. It is open 11 am to 5 pm, Tuesday through Saturday and 24/7 online.
