19 Online Releases

One of our goals is to take away the intimidation in buying original art and create an enjoyable experience for all, whether you're near or far. We work hard to release fresh work by our contemporary artists each month that is accessible to everyone! Collections are available to view in person from our HQ, or 24/7 from our online shop. Sign up for our newsletter and visit our events page to keep up with our schedule!

1 New Owner + 1 New Gallery Associate

Kayla purchased The Miller Gallery from founder, Sarah Miller Gelber, earlier this year. Julia Deckman joined the team as a Gallery Associate shortly after, and we've hit the ground running. We're both so excited to continue The Miller Gallery's growth into 2024 and beyond!

Some Art-filled Logistics

This year we sold 780 artworks, shipped pieces to 43 states and 7 countries, and repurposed 850 lbs of packing materials! No small feat for our mighty team of two :)

HBO Show Feature

A few of our artists' work appeared in HBO's Righteous Gemstones for Season 3! It's always a thrill to see work on the big screen, and we are looking forward to more exciting features in the new year!

Special Thanks

We'd like to extend a special thanks to our neighbors, Babas on Meeting, for keeping us caffeinated. We estimate about 600(ish) coffees drank in 2023, and can highly recommend the Cappuccino.

Also a big thanks to Spotify to keeping our #1 muse, Taylor Swift, on repeat.

Happy New Year, Art Lovers! Thank you so much for your ongoing love and support, it means the world to our small business and 30+ artists we represent. 

We can't wait for 2024!
