JO HAY

In collaboration with the New Gallery of Modern Art in Charlotte, NC, the Miller Gallery hosts “Fire&Grace,” an all-star show of internationally recognized artists featuring Jo Hay, Hunt Slonem, and Shepard Fairey. New works by British-American artist Hay include pieces from her recent series “Persisters,” depicting societal influencers like Rachael Maddow and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“‘Persisters’ is an ongoing series of portrait paintings of outstanding women who have made an impression with their tenacious resolve to succeed in their pursuit of justice. I chose Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second female justice of the US Supreme Court, for her lifelong support of gender equality and equal rights coupled with her bravery in speaking out when fearing the country is in danger,” says Hay. Hay was also recently featured in “Queer and Now” at theTate of London.
