Pamela Miller - Artist Photo

We are excited to share that Pamela Miller, whose painting “The Party Cat at Phillips’ Mill” was recently selected this year’s Signature Image, has been named the 2023 Honored Artist. This unprecedented and happy coincidence occurred through independent voting.

Although she began as a potter, Miller is best known for her landscapes. In the 1980s, she began to work with pastels, finding joy in the immediacy of that medium. She has developed her own technique of sharpening her sticks and using them like finely pointed brushes. Miller also enjoys painting portraits of children. Her work has been included in many of Phillips’ Mill’s juried art exhibitions over the years and is also exhibited at the Coryell Gallery in Lambertville, New Jersey. Miller was part of the Phillips’ Mill 75th Retrospective Invitational Show in 2005.

"The Phillips' Mill Party Cat" by Pamela Miller
"The Phillips' Mill Party Cat" by Pamela Miller

Every year the Phillips’ Mill Art Show Committee selects a “Signature Image” of the Mill to be used on posters, ads, postcards, social media and the website for the upcoming show. This is a dynamic opportunity for artists to build their visibility among collectors. In the past, many of our signature images have sold.

Artists are encouraged to include whimsical as well as traditional depictions of the Mill and its surroundings. We encourage artists to consider themes of diversity and to “think outside of the box."

The 2023 Signature Image is "The Phillips' Mill Party Cat" by Pamela Miller. The artist was inspired by a cat who would sit by the side of the road and wait until it was safe to cross to come "party" at the Mill.

“It was a thrill to be chosen, and this painting tells a great story of a cat who would come strutting into the Mill (during opening receptions and other events) to get its chin scratched," says Miller.

You can read more about this year's painting and its artist on the Artist Spotlight page of this website.
