Erin Miller (she/her) is an artist based in Ithaca, New York, and Houston, Texas. Miller’s studio practice is one that is situated in printmaking and its expanded definitions. While using print as a starting point, she often traverses between disciplines — painting, drawing, textile work, and sculptural installation — to investigate themes of perception and the theatrics of making. In 2022 she received an M.F.A. from Cornell University, where she was the recipient of the Kip Brady Memorial Prize (2021 and 2022) and the John Hartell Graduate Award in studio excellence. She is the 2022 Recipient of The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts’ Robert Blackburn Printmaking Award, EFA at Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, New York, New York.
Her solo show “Casino” was an exhibition of recent collages done during the Fellowship. Drawing inspiration from sites of entertainment like casinos, honky-tonks, and arcades, these works on paper combine dizzying patterns to question notions of chance and control.
The Kahn Family Fellowship, in memory of our colleague Peter Kahn, is designed to offer opportunities to artists seeking further experience and professional development in printmaking and book arts, and is available to artists with postgraduate degrees in printmaking or book arts locally, nationally or internationally. The Fellow is given the privileges of a Printmaker Associate, including unlimited access to the studio to produce their own work, a stipend, the possibility of teaching workshops, and editioning for others on a fee basis, and will have a solo show here at The Ink Shop for the month of June.
