So Good by Beverly McIver

As part of the Durham Art Guild‘s upcoming 54th Annual Juried Show, Durham-based artist Beverly McIver will be speaking at the Mary Lou Williams Center on the Duke Campus this Wednesday, September 17th from 6-9PM. McIver was invited to juror this highly anticipated show, which features 109 original works by DAG members and junior members. The 54th Annual Show will hold its opening reception at the CCB Gallery inside the Durham Arts Council on Friday, September 19th from 5-7PM. The show will be on display through November 2, 2008.

A North Carolina Central University alumni and the recipient of many awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Louis Comfort Tiffany Award, a Radcliffe Fellowship and an Artist of the Year Award from the Scottsdale Cultural Council in Arizona, McIver is one of the most renowned African-American painters in the United States. Her intense photo-expressionist style deals with issues of race, gender, poverty and personal struggle. She is represented by Tyndall Galleries in Chapel Hill.
