The Miller School of Art
If anyone has earned the right to name a school after themselves, it’s Mark Takamichi Miller. The artist’s resumé leaps off the page, trumpeting such accomplishments as a 25-year teaching career at multiple universities and several solo exhibits scattered across Pacific Northwest commercial galleries, New York’s Chelsea galleries, L.A.’s Chinatown district, and his mom's refrigerator. Brian Balmert of the New York Times describes the process behind Miller's award-winning work, stating, “Miller takes a raw canvas and with impasto paint creates these half-inch-thick clotted photo-realist characters.” With all of these accolades, one might expect Miller to be inaccessible, yet his students praise him for his affable, open approach, calling him “extremely positive, friendly, optimistic, and very resourceful” as he leads them toward finding their own styles and artistic voices through painting classes.
