An Exhibit: Works by Beverly Mciver and Duke University’s Advanced Painting Students

Beverly McIver is a nationally recognized artist and the Ebenshade Professor of the Practice in Studio Arts at Duke University. Tori Bilas, Rachel Gallegos, Alexandra Gordon, Sylvia Herbold, Nicole Payne andMichaela Walker study painting with McIver.

McIver's latest work continues her exploration of family. Her subjects include her sister, friends, the artist herself, and most particularly McIver's new relationship with her father. The Ties That Bind documents “. . . the beginning of a love story," in which she seeks to capture and discover her father, Cardrew Davis, through paint. The artist was shocked to learn the identity of her biological father at the age of 17, and it was only after her mother's death in 2004 that she began to have a relationship with him.

Showing alongside McIver are advanced painting students from Duke University: Tori Bilas, Rachel Gallegos, Alexandra Gordon, Sylvia Herbold, Nicole Payne and Michaela Walker. A passionate teacher and believer in arts education, McIver wanted to give these talented young women the opportunity to be seen in a broader context.
