Beverly Buchanan: Home Place
Beverly Buchanan: Home Place at Barbara Archer Gallery. "...Beverly Buchanan's drawings and sculptures celebrate the rural architecture of poverty she knew while growing up in the American South. Reminiscent of sharecropper shacks, her structures challenge our ideas of hopelessness. Instead they salute integrity, resilience and resourcefulness. Buchanan's "shacks" represent many kinds of domestic architecture, either occupied or abandoned. As a talented story-teller, her work evokes the human stories behind the architecture she depicts, creating richly expressive works of art that symbolize the power of community."
