Art Exhibition Reception
All Good Things are Wild and Free: New Works by Regina Miele
Thursday, May 9, 2019 (Evening)
EVENT TYPE: Art Exhibition Reception
Please join us for the opening of artist Regina Miele’s latest exhibition, whose new works follow a journey in the company of Rachel Carson’s writings, a journey of reverent observation and an ode to nature’s resilience. Classically trained, she explores the fundamental tenets of order and place. Working closely within cityscapes, she draws out beauty in the often overlooked. For the past decade, Miele’s principal subject has been the physicality of an ever-changing and gentrifying District of Columbia, along with the surrounding natural landscapes of the Potomac and Anacostia River, Rock Creek, and Chesapeake Bay.
“I have created this current body of work with traditional materials and time-honored tools, which are key to my connection with the natural landscape. Some reflect views from boats, most are from walking and looking and listening. A Talmudic understanding of the world and its creation has God speaking every detail into being and it is my belief that artists and scientists are the adoring listeners, equipped to convey the beauty and fragility of the natural world. Observations remind us to pay attention, to be stewards, and to amplify these gifts’ importance to our hearts and minds.”
A Catholic University graduate, Miele was awarded an artist fellowship in 2019 by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Miele has exhibited both nationally and internationally at such venues as the Florence Biennale, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, The Newington Cropsey Museum, and several reputable art galleries in New York City.
