First Friday Night Open House Reception for Miles Davis and Student Photography Exhibit

Friday Night, Feb. 5th
7:00-9:00 pm
Live Music and Wine Tasting brought to you by the artists of ArtWorks

Miles Davis cultivated his deeply personal artistic perspective/style during his early years growing up in a divorced military family. Since Miles was introduced to several religions and a variety of churches via the military, his hallmark imagery is packed with a wide variety of symbolism that challenges the viewer to see religion, spirituality, and the human condition in a new light.

The subject matter of Mile's present work dives into contemporary spiritual depths and explores current cultural consumerism. His styles and subjects run the gamut from whimsical to complicated. "I am the product of my generation. We've been a vital part of the advent of the Internet and the dawn of the information age. We were raised on Saturday morning cartoons, video games, and comic books. I feel it is only natural that these brain altering contributions have filtered into not only modern American art but global art as well: I'm excited to be a part of it!" 'Gen X' is a label most galleries and magazines give this sort of work, but there are other names as well, like "Low Brow", "Street Art", and "Fusion Art".

Miles got his first big break while showing at the Fayette Art Center in Fayetteville. After holding his first solo exhibit there in 2005, he felt confident enough to approach galleries in Atlanta. He was well received and has become a collectable artist at the tender young age of 26. Since then he has shown in over 14 venues and galleries.
