In Alternate Dimensions, there are no rules: a photograph could become a sculpture while a cupcake might be a few feet tall. This exhibit is Miller Gallery’s love letter to unconventional fine art. Alternate Dimensions will feature three new faces: Elise Thompson, FSU Art MFA ’16 Mar Hester, and Angela Chrusciaki Blehm, who will debut sculptural paintings, photographs, and assemblage pieces. Additionally, Olivia Bonilla will bring a new twist to her whimsical cupcake sculptures. In February at Miller Gallery, Blehm, Bonilla, Hester, and Thompson carry us into another dimension. Miller Gallery is located at 149 1/2 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC 29401. For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
