Andrew Millner: Rose Parade

When: Fri., Sept. 25, 6-8 p.m. and Mondays-Fridays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Nov. 6 2015

The Tournament of Roses Parade still requires the use of real flowers on all floats. The visual spectacle of the 2012 parade inspired artist Andrew Millner to create his new show, Rose Parade. Millner made close-up photographs of the flowers, drew the floral arrangements comprising the floats using a stylus on a digital tablet, and then created large-scale digital prints. In some instances, he drew on top of those prints using acrylic paint extruded through a cake-decorating tool; the results are hand-drawn digital flowers that have both texture and weight to go with their rich, glossy color. Rose Parade opens with a free reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, September 25, at William Shearburn Gallery (665 South Skinker Boulevard; 314-367-8020 or www.shearburngallery.com). The exhibit remains up through Friday, November 6, and the gallery is open noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
