Columbus-based, mixed-media artist Beverly Whiteside has enjoyed developing her skill in the visual arts field for the past several years. She graduated from Bowling Green State University and she was employed as a dance education specialist with the Columbus City Schools District. Whiteside blended her love for visual art with her creative movement experience with children, bringing about a perfect marriage of her two passions. Whiteside's evolution into mixed media and collage artwork, allowed her to introduce another element to this union. Her vibrant snapshots of time are taken from actual and visionary African-American memoirs and experiences. Her artwork ushers to life unapologetic stories concerned with hope, family and community.
