"Poet Ellen Bass Quote"

"Beverly’s artworks are a prayer of praise, a way of being in gratitude for each amazing place on earth. At a time when our earth is in peril, and the environment is threatened, Beverly continues to pay attention to the exquisite land that is still here. And to remind us of how precious it is."

Artist Statement

“Art is a way of accessing a symbolic vocabulary from the deep parts of ourselves that go beyond words and to touch others in that same place.”
_ Chuck Close

Holocaust Artwork

Remnants:
Piecing Together The Stories

By Beverly Sky

This is a memoir about my mother and her family’s experiences
before and after the Holocaust of WWII.
I have been working on this project for the last sixteen years
with the support of The Joiner Institute for the Study of War and
Social Consequences at UMass Boston and my writing teacher and
generous mentor Lady Borton (www.feministpress.org/books/lady-borton).
