Beauty and Terror, Compassion and Despair: The Collages of Miriam Beerman, Hoffmaster and Kohler Galleries

Miriam Beerman is a prolific American artist whose work reveals her deep emotional responsiveness to the tragedies of the human experience, both historical and modern. The collage work highlights her sympathetic preoccupation with injustice and tragedy through the visual expression of strong emotions, as well as her quick intellect, her erudition, her sense of humor, and, importantly, her intuitive, spontaneous artistic process.
