Beverly McIver – Moving to AZ Diary with Sewing
Dimensions: 16 x 16″ unframed
Medium: ink and sewn thread on canvas
Beverly McIver met mentor Faith Ringgold when Ringgold came to Penn State to lecture. McIver was distraught at the time, with little support from her MFA advisors. Ringgold told her to paint her reality and from her experience, and you can see the influence of Ringgold’s advice in this diary entry in which McIver uses sewing to attach the diary page to the canvas.
