It’s a Luxury to Look Back by Angela Miskis
June 30th, 2022 - July 29th, 2022
The show of mixed-media works contains over 50 artworks, including paintings, drawings, and collages. Angela Miskis' vibrant and emotional works are guided by her upbringing in Ecuador and experiences coming-of-age in a foreign country. "Angela's brilliant work brings us together. Physically and emotionally, we can reconcile and reconvene before her artwork. Her abstract works, composed of collages, paintings, and drawings, are an elegant amalgamation of a profoundly intuitive and brilliant individual." said Teri Henderson, the exhibition curator.

"We are extremely excited to have Angela's work in the Miller Gallery. As a community-based institution, it is vital that we present artwork that is accessible and speaks to the community. Angela Miskis' work reflects those ideals and sets a benchmark for the future. We are honored to have her," said Courtney Ffrench, Artistic Director of JCA.
