Beverly Buchanan is an artist who explores Southern vernacular architecture in her Art. Of her work, Buchanan states 'remembering the look and feel of structures has been a strong focus in my drawings and sculptures. My visions and interest shifted to the reality of current places and their surrounding landscape. The house and its yard and the road behind and across. Capturing the essence and something of the look and feel of now versus then is not easy. I want to continue to develop this idea now of memory versus reality.'
Buchanan is the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, a Pollock-Krasner Award, and two National Endowments for the Arts Fellowships. She was a Georgia Visual Arts honoree, a recipient of an Anonymous Was a Woman Award, and was honored by the College Art Association Committee for Women in the Arts. In 2011 Buchanan received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Women's Caucus for Art.
Buchanan's work is included in numerous private and public collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, NY; and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA. http://beverlybuchanan.com
