August 4, 2023—In conjunction with its newest exhibition, Blind Spot––to pass among them, the Miller Art Museum is pleased to partner with Midwest fine art photographer Suzanne Rose in presenting two photography workshops titled small camera Big Print, scheduled for Thurs., August 17 and Fri., August 18, 2023. The workshops will take place at the Miller Art Museum, located at 107 S. 4th Avenue in downtown Sturgeon Bay, WI.

The August 17 workshop is a free opportunity for high school teens aged 14 – 18 years and is scheduled to run from 10am – 3pm; it will give teens the opportunity to work with and learn from a professional fine art photographer living and working in Sturgeon Bay.

In the workshop, Rose will share her complete 'Portable Mindset' of iPhoneography by revealing an effortless on-the-go photographic practice through an innovative workflow with a fine art approach. Lessons will be shared on how to make the perfect capture, reveal the art and craft of post-processing using a single comprehensive editing app, and print photographs that will rival pro cameras. In the workshop, participants can expect to print up to three high-quality images on 13” x 19” photographic paper worthy of a museum wall.

July 13, 2023—Miller Art Museum is pleased to debut Blind Spot — to pass among them, organized by the Museum of Wisconsin Art, and Séjour: Impressions of Giverny by Brigitte Kozma on the second floor Ruth Morton Miller Mezzanine. 

 Both exhibitions will be on view from July 22 - September 9, 2023. An opening reception with the exhibiting artists will be held on Friday, July 21 from 5:30 – 7pm. The reception is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served and music will be provided by Craig Schultz and Mike Miller. The solo artist exhibition featuring the work of Wisconsin artist Suzanne Rose in the museum’s main galleries encompasses a collection of 27 large-scale photographs that explore the understated study of human folly and nature's resilience through an aesthetic influenced by pioneer photographers of the nineteenth century. The photographs resist timestamping. The lush black-and-white images are toned with a custom gradient that Rose developed by studying vintage prints. Their rounded corners, emerald-cut rectangles, and elongated oval formats are directly derived from the 1860s. Despite the influence of yesteryear, Blind Spot is resolutely of the present, gently nudging viewers toward a more thoughtful relationship with their environment.
