About

Beverly Mayeri is a studio artist living in the Bay Area with over 30 years experience as an established ceramic sculptor. She earned a BA from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MA in sculpture at San Francisco State University. Mayeri works with refined and elegant heads and figures, often using meticulously patterned details that allude to the inner life of emotions, thoughts, and human frailties. The pieces are painted in washes of acrylic paint. Mayeri’s figures “evoke a richly complicated human presence, ”and often “bridge the psychological, the political and the sensuous within one hybrid form.” Her work has been shown extensively in museums and galleries, and is included in many public and private collections. She has received 2 NEA grants and a Virginia Groot grant, and has lectured and taught many workshops throughout the U.S. “I’m inspired by a range of ideas like the challenge and comfort of family ties and friendships, the trials and delights of growing up and growing older, the beauty and diversity of the world and our immediate need to be better stewards of the earth,” the artist says. “My approach is to search for a visual metaphor that expresses what I’m feeling. The best ideas are a complete surprise to me. They don’t come out of a logical process but from a form of daydreaming that sometimes gives me a new way of looking at my life and what’s happening around me.”
