multiple column area on front page

I frequently see WP pages with multiple column displays (ie. 2 - 3 - 4 columns). I’d like to put something like this in my site layout to introduce the people who are part of the company. Currently there are only two so a two column section with a picture and some text would work great then a read more link that goes to the full About Us page. Is there something like this in the Shapely theme?
