Roxanne Panero is a painter whose subjects range from landscape and figurative to conceptual art. A graduate of the fine arts department of Barry College in Miami, Florida, Roxanne taught painting and design at Barry College and Miami Dade Junior College. Upon moving to New York City, she became Vice President and Creative Director of R. L. Silver Associates, advertising and marketing, for 14 years. She then established her own design firm, Panero Design, Inc., which is in operation today. Roxanne taught typography and design at Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC for ten years and served as juror, panelist and presenter for advertising awards and seminars throughout her career. She has been the recipient of numerous design awards in the print industry, including being named Graphic Designer of the Year by the Long Island Arts Council. She has also studied at the School of Visual Arts, Pratt Institute Manhattan and the Long Island Academy of Fine Art. The paintings featured in her 2016 show at the Rosalie Dimon Gallery are from her nature series in which she explores the diversity and nuance of pond life, florals and oceans.
Sara Cedar Miller’s archival pigment “light drawings” capture the bays and ocean near her home in Hampton Bays in an abstract style that radically departs from the more traditional and recognizable images of the East End’s water ways. Influenced by her passion for calligraphy, map imagery and watercolor, Miller’s unique images surprise and delight viewers who are shocked to learn that the pictures are essentially “straight” photographs. Miller’s work has been dedicated to conserving the natural environment of both the East End and Manhattan’s Central Park. For the past 32 years Miller has been the official photographer and historian of Central Park for the Central Park Conservancy and has written and photographed three award winning books: Central Park, An American Masterpiece (Abrams, 2003), Seeing Central Park (Abrams, 2009) and Strawberry Fields, Central Park’s Memorial to John Lennon (Abrams, 2011). She received an MFA in photography in 1983 from Pratt Institute. Her earlier work published by Blue Sky in Sara Cedar Miller was funded in 1985 by the National Endowment for the Arts, and she had a one-person show of her work at Art Sites in Riverhead in 2012.
