After being closed for three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ArtCentre of Plano is thrilled to announce that it will reopen to visitors with an exhibition featuring the brilliant works of artists Christine and Keith Miller. “Beneath the Surface: Reimagined” will showcase from July 1 through September 26, 2020. Atmos Energy is the proud sponsor of this stunning exhibition.
The Millers recently began a collaboration interpreting the underwater world of the coral reef. The installation is an advocacy exhibit bringing attention to the fragile state of the globe’s coral reefs. Although this collaboration is new for the husband and wife team, Christine has exhibitions and artistic awards that stretch back to the 1990s.
Christine K. Miller is a life-long fiber artist with experience in weaving, sewing, basketry, embroidery, felting, dyeing, knitting, crochet and fiber sculpture. She has led Weave with Wire workshops across the U.S., and is a nationally recognized visual arts education teacher with experience in Advanced Placement, Foundation and ED art.
Keith Miller’s 2D resin paintings create a watery world for Christine’s 3D coral reef fiber sculptures to interact with. The pairing of the work reflects the organic nature of the sea and some of the forms that live beneath the surface. The dance of light, color, movement and form captures the diversity and glory of the natural world.

The exhibit is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. except when closed for special events. Visitors are requested to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing. Patrons are encouraged to contact the ArtCentre of Plano at 972-423-7809 for further information.
