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.
