Oil paintings by artist Michael Paul Miller will be on display April 6-29 at the Esvelt Gallery at Columbia Basin College in Pasco.
His paintings “explore the sublime nature of existence through post-apocalyptic environments. His work employs elements suggesting death, disaster, and desolation. However, Miller does not abandon hope or beauty by balancing the two extremes. His paintings allow for open-ended inquiry into human condition addressing a range of contemporary issues,” a news release said.
An artist’s talk is at 1 p.m. April 29 in the gallery, with a reception following at 2 p.m. The public is invited.
The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 8 a.m. to noon Fridays.
