About the Exhibition

Jes Miller's oil painting exhibition delves into the allure of nostalgic objects, capturing their essence in moments of pause and memory reflection. The series, If Morandi painted my knick knacks..., magnifies these fleeting instants onto large canvases, inviting viewers to get lost in the intricate interplay of light, color, and texture, and to experience these cherished objects on a grand, human scale.

Artist Bio

Jes Miller, inspired by nature and nostalgia, creates art that intertwines painting with objects, evoking mesmerization, meditation, and memory. Her work, anchored in Abstract Impressionism, gracefully shifts from observational realism to abstraction. Jes questions the essence of peace and the flow state, aiming to replicate these experiences through her art. Her art explores the importance and memories attached to cherished objects. From Bartholomew County and currently studying in the J. Irwin Miller Architecture program, her experience in color and material design shapes her artistic path. Jes's art is more than a medium; it's her way of finding tranquility and pausing time.

About the Gallery

411 is a community arts gallery and cultural space for exhibitions, events, and collaborations. Managed by the Columbus Area Arts Council, 411 Gallery is located in downtown Columbus on the 6th Street Arts Alley, a creative hub at the heart of the city.


Managed by the Columbus Area Arts Council, 411 is made possible by grants from the Efroymson Family Fund, City of Columbus, Columbus Museum of Art & Design and by donations from the community.


Community Studio

The 411 Community Studio is a flexible space for youth arts and emerging creatives to work, meet and collaborate. Made of custom plywood panels and built-in furniture, the space is meant to evolve as artists work with the community to reimagine the exhibition wall into temporary installations. The Community Studio is part of the Columbus Area Arts Council's inaugural residency project and was made possible through generous support from Heritage Fund: The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County.
