Ronald Beverly is a fine art photographer/digital imagist residing in Prince George’s County over 16 years. His academic studies produced a BFA from Howard University and an MFA from George Washington University. Inspired by the masters of large format film camera work, Ronald developed a sensibility towards texture and detail by emphasizing tactile quality of the elements within the photographic composition while possessing the need to capture and finesse the elusive quality of light as reoccurring characteristics in his work. Over time Mr. Beverly has pursued a commitment of high standards and excellence in his photography while bridging the gap between conventional wisdom of film capture and digital imaging. This level of commitment allowed Mr. Beverly to appear as a
panelist/presenter during the 2011 and 2012 SECAC (Southeastern College Art Conference) annual conferences giving papers entitled Pixel Chiaroscuro: The Advancements and Enhancements of the Analog Image and B.R.E.W.: New Work in Collaborative Art respectively. Other accomplishments include commissioned pieces as part of a permanent installation in the MGM Casino Resort in Prince George's County, MD, a group exhibition at the Driskell Center titled Convergence: Jazz, Film and the Visual Arts at the University of Maryland/ College Park, group exhibition at the LaGrange National XXVll annual in LaGrange, Ga. and a solo traveling exhibition entitled A Point In Time at the Black Creek Art Center in Hartsville, SC. and at the Black Rock Center for the Arts in Germantown, MD. These opportunities as well as being a recent recipient of the Individual Artist Award from the Prince Georges Arts and Humanities Council provides encouragement and support to continue exploration refining bodies of work relevant to the artist vision and expression. Mr. Beverly is currently teaching at Montgomery College, Rockville, MD as an associate professor in photography.
