This joint exhibit showcases the works of two artists: Debbie Miller and Angela Puglisi.

Debbie Miller presents “Viewing the World Through a Painter’s Eye”

As a plein air painter Debbie Miller enjoys the challenge of painting out of doors. The art she creates on location is about the beauty of a moment held in memory. An avid gardener as well, she finds the colors and shapes of flowers and blooming shrubs exciting to explore artistically. A strong composition and the principles of impressionism, the effect of light on color, are the goal. Debbie earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Ohio Wesleyan University. Since that time she has studied at the Corcoran School of Art.

Angela A Puglisi presents “Homage to Nature”

Angela’s homage to nature aims to capture the poetic beauty of nature through the movement of color, lines, design, and spontaneity. She also is focusing on the natural world through a lens of structure and technique. Dr. Puglisi taught the fine arts and art history as a Professorial Lecturer, Art & Culture at Georgetown University SCS (26 years) and previously taught painting, drawing and art history at Catholic University’s SCE Program.
