Anna Miller’s Inner Light: In a Time of Pandemic, is a celebration of the human spirit through abstraction. Filled with bright colors and energized forms, this group of paintings represents an exploration of the artist’s personal development in the midst of struggle. Inspired by the natural beauty of St. Johns County, Miller’s series interprets these surroundings through the poetic and metaphorical expression of semi-abstract imagery. Sub-tropical flowers and plants, stormy skies, and the drama and power of the ocean and sun inform the artist’s visual language consisting of geometric shapes, refracted light patterns, and dynamic lines. Exhibition July 2 to August 13, 2021 at the Lightner Museum, located at 75 King St. in historic downtown, St Augustine, FL

Anna Miller came to the Ancient City Poets reading on Sunday January 27th at the Corazon Cinema & Cafe in St Augustine. She met some of the poets for the first time. She thanked them for being part of her “Refractions” exhibition at the rotunda of the St Johns County Administration Building. The poets likewise thanked her for incorporating another form of art as poetry in her exhibition and allowing them to express themselves through her art. The poets read all the poems that are sharing a spot with her work at the rotunda to a packed house at the Corazon. It was truly a lovely afternoon. “Refractions” will be displaying till March 15th 2019.

My vision began to worsen early on in life. However, I often would not wear my glasses and would start seeing the world differently from the position of a nearsighted person. It was a world without details but with interesting designs, fragments of light with shadows, and incomplete patterns. One of my favorite examples of fragmentation was the fluid design created by light in moving water. The movement of light through water was captivating and meditative: It always brought peace to my soul. My paintings expressed refractions of light. Refractions comes from the observation and perception of color and light patterns found in nature. During painting of these new designs based on refractions, I would get lost in meditation of color, shapes, and lines, discovering limitless possibilities and combinations. “Refractions” also brought the Ancient City Poets of St Augustine FL to be part of this exhibition by bringing two forms of abstract together in one place. Anna’s art and the poems will be available for viewing in the Rotunda of the St Johns County Administration Building during normal business hours (8am – 5pm) from January 3rd, 2019. You are cordially invited to the official opening of “Refractions” in the Rotunda at 8:15am January 15th, 2019. Exhibition will be on display till March 15, 2019.
