View "The Colors of our Soul" at Cuyahoga Falls Library in February

Akron artist/photographer Cari Miller will be showing "The Colors of our Soul", a collection of 26 color photos, at the Cuyahoga Falls Library, 2015 Third Street, during the month of February. Miller will be donating $2 from each sale to the American Heart Association.

Miller, a member of the Artists of Rubber City, has spent the last 20+ years working in Northeast Ohio as an award-winning photographer, editor, writer, graphic designer and artist. A degree in communications from the University of Akron and post-baccalaureate studies at the Mary Schiller School of Art have allowed Miller to work for employers as diverse as the Hudson Hub-Times, the Akron Public Schools and Crain Communications' Plastics News.

Last May, Miller showed 25 of her bold, colorful paintings at the library. This time, she turns the focus to her photography.

"'The Colors of our Soul'" is a collection of photos taken from locations as diverse as Albuquerque, N.M.; Edinburgh, Scotland; Portland, Oregon; and Baltimore, Maryland," Miller explains. "But except for a few of the photos, you'd be hard-pressed to identify where they were taken."

Miller continues, "I don't want the viewer to focus on where the photo was taken, but instead on what the photographs reveal about our souls -- feelings like joy and heartache and friendship."

Miller also has six paintings on display at "Room with a View" (8th floor of the Ohio Building) in Akron until the end of April. For more information on her work or her 2009 exhibit schedule, visit
