Alexandra “Alex” Whiteside
Alex has been professionally involved in the visual arts for over 30 years. Her formal education includes photography, dramatic arts, fine art and interior design. Alex is currently a part-time instructor in the Interior Design Program at the Art Institute of Virginia Beach where she teaches architectural drafting, working drawings, and detailing. Alex and her husband James also recently contracted with Creative Music studios in Chesapeake, Virginia, to offer youth and adult art workshops in drawing, painting and photography.
In 2013, after a long career of painting commissioned pieces for private clients through her interior design firm, Alex began to exhibit in public venues in Hampton Roads. Recent shows include Halls of Art XII at the Hampton Roads Convention Center, the 2013 and 2015 Artists Block Party at the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Celebration of the Arts Gallery at First Baptist Church of Hampton. One of Alex’s abstract landscape paintings was part of the silent auction fundraiser at the West Mercury Center for the Arts in May 2015. In April 2015, Alex was invited to co-judge the visual arts category of the NAACP-sponsored Virginia Peninsula ACT-SO local competition, which determines who qualifies for National competition.
Alex specializes in non-representational abstracts, working in both oils and acrylics. Her paintings are typically large scale and convey color, mood, and movement while stripped bare of recognizable symbols, providing a unique experience and “story” for each viewer.
