Unknown The ArchiTech Gallery in Chicago recently announced their summer 2011 show. Titled Edgar Miller and running May 6 – August 27, 2011, it's a perfect follow-up to the gallery's recent Alfonso Iannelli show and provides another glimpse into the amazing talent that creatively blossomed at the Park Ridge, IL Iannelli Studios.

 From the ArchiTech Gallery's press release:

"Fame has come late for Edgar Miller (1899 - 1993). Now is his time.

Every true artist lives in his own internal universe and Miller was no exception. Starting in the late 1920s, he transformed a number of Victorian townhouses in Chicago into modernist dwellings that had no artistic precedent. Their interior and exterior architecture, from their ironwork and wood carving, to their painted surfaces and stained glass windows, spoke in his own creative language as unique as their owners' personalities. But before he began creating his amazing houses, he apprenticed in the famous Iannelli Studios.

From Alfonso Iannelli, he learned illustration, advertising, package design, sculpture and art glass construction.

ArchiTech Gallery, in its Iannelli archives, has numerous examples of Miller's earliest works. Throughout the summer, ArchiTech will exhibit and sell Miller's designs for Marshall Field advertisements, cosmetic packaging logos, stained glass window cartoons and Vaudeville poster ideas.

Opening May 6 and continuing through August 27, this commercial exhibition and sale will show how Edgar Miller's professional life began."

It is another timely exhibit, since the Iannelli Studios in Park Ridge, IL (where Edgar Miller created these works) is in jeopardy of being lost. For more info on Alfonso Iannelli, Edgar Miller and this show, check out the ArchiTech Gallery website.
