Although she created art as a child, Birmingham, Alabama-based artist Beverly Erdreich first studied art history before devoting herself to making art. Once she decided on this path she earned a degree in printmaking from Birmingham-Southern College. Erdreich continued her artistic education by taking a master class with Jennifer Bartlett at the Santa Fe Institute of Fine Art and life drawing classes at the Art Students League in New York City. "Long Ago and Far Away" illustrates Erdreich's lyrical painting style that explores the beauty and texture of paint. She states, “The paint transforms layers of my experiences to become a visual statement and a non-ending search… As the strata become more textured, the richness of my consciousness allows intuition to interact with intellect pushing deeper and wider. My interest is not just to play with the formal elements of abstract painting, but to transform my lifelong experiences into a journey on a canvas.”
