FARMINGTON — SugarWood Gallery will feature photographer Duncan Miller at an open house reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 6, during First Friday Art Walk.

Miller, of Livermore, is the Artist of the Month for May.

The public is invited and refreshments will be served.

Miller moved to Livermore from Gainesville, Fla., in 1976. He worked for many years as a part-time farrier and welder while his family raised sheep. Now Miller, his wife Robin, and his father raise horses, chickens, and have cats and dogs.

“My interest in photography began in my teens with the usual black and white darkroom in the bathroom and remained a hobby through the years. Around the turn of the century, I began doing more with it but it wasn’t until the change to digital a few years later that I began showing and selling my work. The ability to once again do my own printing has opened many new possibilities such as layering images, interpretive image manipulation, and use of a variety of different paper surfaces,” he said.

Miller photographs animals, specifically horses.

Miller’s work will be on display throughout May for the public to view and purchase.

SugarWood Gallery is located at 248 Broadway and is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
