2017 Smelser Vallion Visiting Artist

Beverly Acha
2012 MFA, Painting and Printmaking, Yale University
2009 BA, American Studies and Studio Art, Williams College





Born in Miami, FL, and currently based in California, Beverly Acha makes paintings, prints, and drawings that employ a language of abstraction that explores structures of space, time, and perception. Responding to shifts in her physical environment and landscape, Acha uses light, color, and structural forms to capture the ways in which place changes how we see and move through space.
