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.
