Reflections: Portraits By Beverly McIver 

When: Oct. 20-Jan. 6 2013
Price: $5-$10
Even without knowing the backstory behind Greensboro native and artist Beverly McIver's self and familial portraits, her works resonate as personal. They resemble snapshots that've been livened up with wispy brushstrokes and vibrant colors, all the while capturing a casual, behind-the-scenes aroma of kinfolk bonding. But solos of McIver also reflect struggle and perseverance. After McIver lost her mother to cancer at a young age, she took care of her disabled sister Renee until, rather miraculously, Renee was able to live on her own. It was this painful and joy-bound narrative that later struck a chord with HBO, which shot a documentary on McIver's life as a successful artist and caretaker. McIver's works come to Charlotte for Reflections: Portraits By Beverly McIver, an exhibit at Mint Museum Uptown.
