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. Buchanan now lives and works in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This exhibition, her premiere showing at Barbara Archer Gallery, is Buchanan’s first exhibition in Atlanta in over a decade.
