November 14: Beverly Hunter
On November 14, 2022 at 7 p.m., Beverley Hunter will demonstrate her approach to making mosaic art pieces. Beverley says that mosaic art is the culmination of all the creative passions she
has had from a very early age ranging through portraiture, needlepoint, quilting, ceramics, sculpting, and incessant drawing. All incorporated her adoration of color and texture.
Ms. Hunter uses many types of media in her mosaics including glass, ceramics, beads, tiles, and unique found treasures. Her education and professional background included graphic design, so
composition is in her nature. To apply this in a three-dimensional way to create a detailed extravaganza of tactile shape and color is supremely rewarding to her. She is thrilled when people enjoy the artwork that she has gained such satisfaction in creating.Ms. Hunter holds an Associate’s degree in Graphic Design, Textile Design, and Fine Art from St. Albans College of Art and Design, St. Albans, England and a BA with Honors in Graphic Design from Canterbury College of Art/Kent Institute of Art and Design in Kent, England. Her
professional life in graphic design included positions at John Michael Design PLC in London as Production Manager and Kinetik Communication Graphics in Washington, DC as Production
Manager. She is currently with Hirshorn Zuckerman Design Group where she is responsible for buying print for their Rockville, New York, and Baltimore offices.
Beverley has shown and sold her work in galleries across the U.S. and at numerous craft shows in Maryland, including Artscape in Baltimore, Sugarloaf in Gaithersburg, and Paragon in Silver
Spring. She is currently showing her work at Hive Artspace in York, PA and HorseSpirit Arts Gallery in Savage, MD.
