William H. Miller: What You See Is What You Get

Friday, February 23, 2018 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

William H. Miller, professional full-time artist and owner of William H. Miller Studios & Fine Art in Myrtle Beach, will present his exhibit What You See Is What You Get. This body of work examines Miller’s struggle to successfully actualize two art media: traditional painting and digital painting. Just as he was finding his way as a classically trained artist, Miller was also introduced to early computer-graphic technology. Digital art, painting and the space between are Miller’s playground for the exhibit.
