Peter Miller's painting Abstract Figure and Tabletop Still Life

We extend a warm invitation to all members for a special event at Morton Contemporary Art Gallery. Come and discover the captivating story of Peter Miller, born Henrietta Myers (PAFA '34), an artist, philanthropist, mystic, and fearlessly courageous woman. Miller's surrealist modernist paintings, found in a Catskills barn in the depths of the COVID 2020 pandemic, have been lovingly restored and on display at Morton Contemporary through May 2024.


Join our fascinating, members-only conversation uncovering Miller's artistry and legacy. Featuring Paul Gratz (PAFA '83), owner and head conservator of Gratz Gallery & Conservation Studio, and John Randolph, family friend of Miller, this exclusive talk will be moderated by Debbie Morton, gallery owner and curator.

Please kindly RSVP to attend as space is limited.
