§ The Fabulous Beverly McIver at the Betty Cunningham Gallery

I can’t believe I waited so long to post on the Beverly McIver exhibition! (At least I did publish on Tumblr a few weeks ago!) But you only have a few days left: closing on October 15th.

Beverly McIver is a wonderful artist from Durham NC. She’s honest, fierce, compassionate, and talented. She’s an academic, a mentor, and a treasure in the Research Triangle Region. She’s also a really good human being.

Her talent is undeniable. I went by and chatted with her to hear about her new exhibit. She’s put together an amazing amount of fascinating and bold work in 2016. It’s hard to imagine how someone could create this much fabulous work in 9 months, but I think she was just in one of those places that artists get artists get: where something clicks. It can be something dramatic or tragic or beautiful. In this case I think it’s a joy. What a joy this show is!

As an aside, I met Betty Cuningham (another thrill) and she could not be nicer or a better gallery owner! Here’s a link for you for the McIver show: http://www.bettycuninghamgallery.com/exhibitions/beverly-mciver3.

Here are some of the pieces in the show.
