Winifred Godfrey leans on one of her signature oil paintings of flowers. Godfrey won one of the first competitive art shows at the Beverly Arts Center. She is returning as the community art center at 2407 W. 111th Street celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Construction of the Beverly Arts Center began in 1968 on the grounds of the private school at 2153 W. 111th St. and was complete one year later. Godfrey said her father encouraged her to participate in the first competitive art show there in 1983. She won first prize.
Many of the pieces that brought her acclaim will be on display at the Beverly Arts Center, which moved into a 40,000-square-foot facility on the busy corner of 111th Street and Western Avenue in 2002.

I need a ping pong table (table tennis) put together and I'm looking for a reasonably priced handyman. I'm in the Beverly area. TIA.
