Miller Photography at Warren County Hall Gallery
The Warren County
Cultural & Heritage Commission is pleased to announce a show of Cathy
Miller's photographs of music performers on display at the Hall
Gallery of the Warren County Administration Building on Rt. 519 in
The works are original

in an old farmhouse in downtown Asbury which has been home for nearly
20 years, after relocating from Essex County. Of her work and career
as a photographer, Cathy Miller says, ‘I've worked as a photographer
for over three decades. My mainstay for many of those early years was
music photography, getting a start at The Dirt Club, in Bloomfield, NJ
and The Meadowbrook in Cedar Grove, NJ, and being a regular
contributor to The Aquarian Weekly. ‘Over time, I've collaborated with
hundreds of wonderful people on countless projects, not just music,
and for the past four years contributed monthly to “Inside Jersey”
magazine, specializing in food and cocktail photography. My work spans
soup to nuts (with octopus and oxtail thrown in the mix) ...press
conferences to poetry readings ...multi-day music festivals to
informal shows ...local schools to gala fundraisers ...weddings to
reunions to birthdays and other celebrations ...family portraits to
corporate head shots ...business seminars to networking
events ...groundbreakings to grand openings...farmers to factories
...construction to demolition ...and the New Jersey Roller Derby. You
get the picture.’
