Bernice Sims

 

 

 

 

Bernice Sims lived near Brewton, Alabama in the rural community of Hickory Hill. A hardworking single mother of six, she was active in the Civil Rights Movement in the 60's and the March in Selma was a favorite subject in her paintings.

 

Encouraged to paint "her way" by Larry Manning, long time friend and her art instructor, Bernice graced us with her interpretation of everyday life and it's struggles until her passing in October of 2014.
