This is firsMills’ first solo show at Blue MountainKnown for his printmaking and for his distinguished work in public and eco-art, this is Mills’ first show in NYC since his return to painting. .

“I paint directly from subjects in my familiar surroundings. The poetry of place arises from my own personal mythology: a longing for lost homes; a remembrance of water; of daydreaming looking out of windows: of silence. I occasionally make a pilgrimage, but for the most part, it’s just there, in front of me. From my observations and emotions I try to make good paintings.”

Mills has been artist in residence at the Teaneck Creek Conservancy and a visiting Fellow at the Jentel Foundation, Ucross Foundation and the Virginia Center for Creative Arts. Mills has received grants from numerous arts foundations and state and federal agencies including the NJ State Council on the Arts, Puffin Foundation, Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, USEPA, NJDEP and NJ TRANSIT.
