Spotlight on Silent Auction Artist Emily Miller

Emily Miller
Emily Miller

“I am originally from Colorado, and growing up at the base of the Rockies greatly influenced my development as an artist. I have always spent a great deal of time outside, and I love to travel both within the U.S. and abroad. My love for traditional ethnic jewelry sparked my interest in becoming a jeweler, and I have studied beading and metal-smithing alongside other accomplished artists and jewelers.


“In my work I attempt to bring together unexpected materials from all over the world, both new and antique. I love to work with the organic quality of hand-cut gemstones and ethnic beads and combine these with the classic beauty of metal. I am inspired by ancient art and the natural world, and I like to create contemporary pieces with a connection to the past.”


Emily has generously donated a necklace of silver and exotic beads to The ArtsCenter’s Silent Auction, on display throughout the month of June in the Nicholson Gallery.  To place a bid for this piece, visit our box office  or call us at (919) 929-2787.  Bids starting at $30 will be accepted until 5PM on June 28th.
