About the Artist: Although she has been successful working as an artist in sculpture, painting, drawing and photography, Beverly Buchanan originally studied and worked in the medical field. Buchanan was born in Fuquay, North Carolina in 1940 and grew up in Orangeburg, South Carolina. Her education began in Greensboro, North Carolina at Bennett College where she received her BachelorÂ¿s degree in 1962. Later, she went to Columbia University in New York earning her MasterÂ¿s Degree in Parasitology and a second MasterÂ¿s Degree in Public Health in the late 1960s.
In 1971, Buchanan attended the Art Students League in New York City where she was instructed by Norman Lewis, an artist recognized for his Abstract painting, after being employed as a Medical Technologist and dedicating time to Health Education. Throughout her career, Buchanan has received a number of fellowships and awards for her artwork. In 1980, she was given one fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and another from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
A second fellowship was awarded by the NEA for her sculpture work in 1990, the same year she was honored with the Pollock-Krasner Award. She has served as a Visiting Artist in South Carolina and as the Artist-In-Residence in Macon, Georgia at the Museum of Arts and Sciences. Beginning in the 1970s, solo displays of her artwork have been organized by institutions, including the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery and the Cinque Gallery in New York City; Heath Gallery Incorporated of Atlanta, Georgia; Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon, Georgia; Schering-Plough Headquarters Gallery in Madison, New Jersey; and the University of Alabama in Birmingham.
BuchananÂ¿s work has been included in group exhibitions at museums and galleries across the United States, and has been installed in outdoor settings in Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina. The Â¿Blue Station Stones, Â¿ for example, were completed in 1986 and are situated at the Earlington Heights Metro Station in Miami, Florida. Permanent collections in which her artwork is found belong to institutions including the Columbia Museum of Art in South Carolina; High Museum of Art in Atlanta Georgia; Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City; and the Newark Museum in New Jersey.
