Lightner Museum announces the second exhibition in its Lightner Local series


“Inner Light: In a Time of Pandemic,” a new exhibition featuring the work of artist Anna Miller, will open Friday, July 2, at the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine.

It has been described as a celebration of the human spirit through abstraction. Filled with bright colors and energized forms, Miller’s paintings represent an exploration of the artist’s personal development in the midst of struggle.

Inspired by the natural beauty of St. Johns County, “Inner Light” interprets these surroundings through the poetic and metaphorical expression of semi-abstract imagery. Sub-tropical flowers and plants, stormy skies and the drama and power of the ocean and sun inform the artist’s visual language consisting of geometric shapes, refracted light patterns and dynamic lines.

“In my work, I explore rhythm, movement and composition in order to express feelings,” said Miller. “The process is very similar to instrumental music composition, where the sounds of different instruments or groups of instruments, represent different emotions.”

“Inner Light: In a Time of Pandemic” is the second exhibition in the museum’s 2021 Lightner Local series. Created to showcase the extraordinary talents of artists who live in the Northeast and Central Florida regions, Lightner Local is supported by the Benjamin and Jean Troemel Arts Foundation.

The exhibition opening will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. July 2, coinciding with St. Augustine’s First Friday Art Walk. The work will be on display until Aug. 13.

The Lightner Museum is open seven days a week, 363 days a year, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 75 King St., St. Augustine. For further information, go to or call 904-824-2874.
