Allen & Miller Exhibit 54 canvases at the new Manheim Township Public Library

September 19, 2010

Eleven 3ft x 4ft Robert Allen canvases were installed in one long row on the second story at the new Manheim Township Public Library, in preparation for opening receptions Sept 12, 2010, attended by 300 library donors and friends of the 13 artists exhibited.

Four of Kevin Miller’s 4ft x 4ft Provence Style paintings hang in the second story vault over the reception desk in the foyer of the new library. Shown in this photo left to right: “San Clemente Summer” is based loosely on Kevin’s former neighborhood overlooking the Pacific Ocean. “Autumn Reflection” draws inspiration from many Pennsylvania farm ponds and scenes near the artists’ current woodland studio deep in Amish farm country. “The Old College Town” depicts everyone’s rose-colored memories of those years.

This second story installation includes canvases by Robert Allen and several 2-artist canvases by “Allen Miller” for which both artists worked on the compositions at the same time. Left to Right: “Revelations” is a 4ft x 8ft acrylic on canvas by Robert Allen. “Maya I Ching Convergence” is a 4ft x 6ft painting by “Allen Miller.” Turning the corner, “Ocean” is a 3ft x 4ft acrylic on canvas by Robert Allen. “Joined at the Heart” is a 4ft x 6ft 2-artist painting by Allen and Miller, signed “Allen Miller.”

Kevin Miller’s 4ft x 4ft acrylic on canvas, “Woodland Spirits” seems right at home in “The Silo” — a round reading room that is just one small part of the spectacular children’s library in this exciting new architecture.

The inaugural art exhibit at the new Manheim Township Public Library continues through Oct 31 with Gala Opening festivities for the library starting at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, Oct 16 and continuing throughout the day, culminating in a large formal banquet and silent art auction that evening for library supporters.

Look up as you enter the library. Four of Kevin Miller’s 4ft x 4ft Provence Style oil landscapes on canvas hang in the 2nd story vault directly over the reception desk. Shown here on the left is “Return to Provence,” based on a pencil sketch made by the artist in a field outside Aix-en-Provence, France in 1969. This is the third time he has painted this scene, and he says he hopes to get it right some day. On the right is “San Clemente Summer,” loosely based on the artist’s former neighborhood overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Southern California.
