Ken B. Miller | Fine Art
I've been working on the underlying structure for this website, so you might notice some weirdness for a little while. Please let me know if you find any bugs.
Recently, I've been focusing on making small mail art collages which you can see on my Mail Art Blog. These are related to my paintings in that they use photos and a grid-like structure, and often play with the idea of what a photograph is. Send me some mail art if you'd like to get one in your mailbox!
I'll be showing Untitled (The Map Painting) at the Welcome Back: Highwire Artists and Alumni show at Highwire Gallery in Philadelphia from February 3-26, 2012. The show features past and present members of Highwire and should have some great artwork.
Check out my Etsy Store, featuring archival prints of my artwork as well as my Recessive Traits Merchandise like greeting cards, tote bags, t-shirts and postcards.
November & December, 2009:
October 31 - December 17: Do you love bacon? I do, but I'm also vegetarian, so I can't eat it. But, that doesn't stop me from making bacon art for The Bacon Show at Mew Gallery at 906 Christian Street in South Philadelphia. The opening reception is November 7th, 5-9 pm. Featured artists include Ellen Cagnassola, Cho, Jacob Crose, Mike Geno, Sappy Moose Tree and John Wolfer. The phone number for Mew Gallery is 215-625-2424.
See my digital sock monkey collages at the Langhorne Coffee House as part of The Sock Monkey Show. Also showing will be Gail Bracegirdle's watercolors, Mike Geno's oils and Elaine Golak's 3-D monkeys!
See Branches, a show of my new work at Highwire Gallery in Philadelphia. This show focuses on trees and tree-like forms, contrasting them with geometric figures and rigid grid-like structures. Highwire Gallery recently moved to Fishtown, so the address is now: 2040 Frankford Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19125.

July 22: See my stuff at Lazertown, 3245 Amber St., Philadelphia for the Big Art Show! Make sure you wear adequate eye protection and bring your lazer gun because it's going to be lazer tag all night long... I'm not sure if that's really true, but what the hell, it would be fun! Doors open at 7 PM and admission is $5... this one is all ages, so bring the kids, spring grandma out of jail, round up the uncles and aunts! I'll be showing some work and selling some shirts and other stuff, plus I'll have my paintball gun... I mean, lazer gun... damn, I hate it when I get them mixed up!
June 10: In Liquid's Art for the Cash Poor art sale is always a lot of fun, with over 100 artists showing and selling their underpriced work (everything for sale must be under $199) plus music, raffle, food and drink. This year it will be at The Crane Arts Building, 1400 N. American Street and the art sale will be from 1-7 PM. Admission is free.

Some of the Recessive Traits paintings will be appearing in the December issue of the online magazine Mung Being*... the theme for this issue is consumerism and product affiliation, so these paintings are a pretty good fit!
*not to be confused with Mung Bean
