SECCA is proud to host "Beverly McIver: Full Circle," a survey of more than 50 works that demonstrate the diversity of the artist's thematic approach to painting over 25 years. An opening reception with the artist and curator will be held Thursday, December 8 from 5–8pm. The reception is free and open to the public.
From early self-portraits in clown makeup to more recent works featuring portraits of others and her own reflections on the COVID-19 pandemic, Full Circle illuminates the arc of McIver's artistic career while also touching on her personal journey. Her self-portraits explore expressions of individuality, stereotypes, and ways of masking identity, while portraits of family members provide glimpses of intimate moments, in good times as well as in illness and death.
