Black Creek Arts Council in Hartsville, SC, Features Works by Ronald Beverly

The Black Creek Arts Council in Hartsville, SC, will present the exhibit, A Point In Time, featuring photographic works by Ronald Beverly, on view in the Jean & James Fort Gallery, from Nov. 3 through Dec. 21, 2011. A reception will be held on Nov. 3, from 5:30-7pm.

Beverly offered the following statement about his work: “The imagery presented is a culmination of experiences in photographing for over thirty years. Arriving at a mid-career status, I’ve seized the opportunity to refine my vision within the cultural explosion and technological advancements of photography. To be making pictures at a time when photography is reinventing itself is something not to be missed. In looking back over this body of work, I’ve learned a bit about myself and the progress that has been made. Inspired by the masters of large format photography, I have developed a sensibility towards texture and detail by emphasizing tactile quality of the elements within the compositions. The desire to capture and finesse the elusive quality of light is also a reoccurring characteristic. Although I’ve produced photographs in various genres and coping with the challenges of digital imaging, I never lost sight of having these essential qualities present in my work.”

A Point In Time makes reference to a recent point in my career where I experienced an epiphany from producing collaborative art works with a few of my colleagues at Howard University,” added Beverly. “The creativity that has resulted from this (B.R.E.W.) experience has guided me onto a new path for developing, resolving and executing ideas uninhibited at an accelerated pace. I’m enjoying this new journey as well as having the opportunity to share this evolutionary process with you.”

Beverly is the nephew of Clayton Richardson a Darlington County community activist and a recent recipient of the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award. Clayton is also People to People’s Program Coordinator, as well as the recipient of McCall-Wiggins Award for Community Support awarded to him by Black Creek Arts Council – Darlington County Arts Awards.
