Geordie Millar - 4th Year Life Drawing

Geordie Millar was born in Ontario, Canada, beginning life as an artist sketching landscapes with his father and studying the drawings of his grandfather, Architect ECS Cox. Millar went on to study drawing and painting at the Art Students League of N.Y. and the National Academy School of Fine Arts in N.Y.C. as well as actively pursuing private study.

He was the 1996 Artist-in-Residence at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum in Oradell, N.J. and his work can be found in their permanent collection. Millar is an elected member of the NY Society of Animal Artists, winning their 2007 Award of Excellence and the Patricia Allen Bott Award for Creative Excellence for work from his 2006 WALKING installation originally shown in Saint John, New Brunswick. Work from this exhibit is also in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and the New Brunswick Art Bank.

In 2008 Millar's exhibition, PROCESSION, won the Peter and Evelyn Haller Memorial Distinguished Young Artist Award from the Society of Animal Artists. His work has been exhibited throughout Canada, the United States and Europe.
