When asked to describe La Mer Bretonne, Kimerly shared, “A few years ago, on the brink of retirement, I returned to “student” days in France by staying with a couple in the suburbs of St Brieuc (Côtes d’Armor) and volunteering as an English language specialist in a nearby middle school. Unlike in my actual student days, I had the resources to rent a car during my 8-week stay and spent my free time exploring the coastal areas of Brittany. As a Midwesterner the changing moods of the sea and the life of the people who live near it are unfamiliar to me except as an occasional visitor so my extended time in the region gave me the opportunity to explore aspects of coastal life in a more leisurely fashion. On sandy beaches and dramatic promontories, during sunny days and misty afternoons, from the shallow bay of St Brieuc to the breathtaking land’s end of Finistère I found something to pique my visual interest of La Mer Bretonne.”

The opening of Kimerly’s exhibition will take place on Thursday, May 5 at 6 pm. After opening night the exhibition will be open to visitors Monday through Thursday 9 am to 7 pm, and Fridays and Saturdays 9 am to 4 pm. The exhibition will be on display until May 30th, 2022. It is free of charge, with a $10 suggested donation to support our cultural programs.

Kimerly Miller, retired now from her career as a language educator, developed an interest in photography soon after graduation from Macalester College with a B.A. in French. Starting with a film camera that she purchased for a trip to France in 1978 she focuses on architecture, wildlife, landscape, and abstract photography. Since switching to digital photography about 10 years ago, she has had images exhibited at the Minneapolis Photo Center, the Cape Cod Art Center, the New York Center for Photographic Art, the Black Box Gallery (Portland, OR), and the Pennsylvania Center for Photography, among other venues. One of the images in this exhibit was chosen for the calendar published annually by the Alliance Française.
