Response and Memory: The Art of Beverly Buchanan
November 21, 2009 - January 31, 2010
This exhibition featured Beverly Buchanan, who has lived and worked in Georgia for much of her adult life. In her artwork, Buchanan depicts vernacular architecture and its environment. She constructs a narrative that serves as a metaphor for the triumph of the human spirit over poverty and adversity. Although academically trained, Buchanan utilizes the tools often associated with the self-taught artist, such as inserted text, found objects, and loosely applied vibrant color, to create visually the rich textures of the humble, yet complex, structures of her drawings, sculptures, prints, and photographs. This exhibition was sponsored in part by Thompson Building Wrecking Co., Inc. and PotashCorp.
