On Friday, Nov. 2, the Miller Gallery revealed Teresa Roche’s and Kiah Bellow’s joint abstract collection. The Miller Gallery hosted the opening of “Roche + Bellows: Wanderings Revisited” from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Teresa Roche is an abstract artist whose memories and family are her inspiration. Before working in the art world, Roche majored in dance and art in college. She worked in the marketing industry for many years, and then decided to open the Art and Light Gallery in Greenville, South Carolina.
Kiah Ann Bellows is an abstract painter who works with Teresa Roche in the Art and Light Gallery in Greenville as Gallery Assistant. Before working at the gallery, she received a Bachelor of Arts in Art with a concentration in Painting and Printmaking from Gardner-Webb University and worked as an independent artist. Bellows’ life experiences inspire her abstract landscapes.
Sarah Miller, a CofC alumna, opened and manages The Miller Gallery. Originally from Maryland, Miller earned a Bachelor of Arts in Arts Management at the College of Charleston. She also studied contemporary art at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
The Miller Gallery is a cozy and welcoming art gallery located on 149 ½ East Bay Street. According to Miller, the gallery’s motto “Art for All,” means art should be available to all people. Smaller and more affordable works help Miller carry out the gallery’s motto. Most works in the “Art for All” initiative cost less than $500, and several are under $100. However, the gallery displays some larger work. The Miller Gallery posts its entire contents on its website. The Miller Gallery will host its next event, “Big + Small, Art for All,” on December 7 from 5 to 8 p.m.
