Carol Buchman’s mixed media work explores a wide variety of themes, including contemporary, everyday objects, narrative landscapes of utopian and exotic worlds, and creatures that are delightful and vibrant at any age. Her extensive vocabulary of bold color, collage materials and glazes layer her work with richness and depth. Her mediums consist of oil, acrylic, gouache, inks, fabric, lace, glazes, flowers, handmade papers, polyurethane, photographs, wallpaper, sequins, nail polish, glitter, feathers and more.
Buchman received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and a Master of Fine Arts from Boston University School for the Arts. Her pieces have been collected and exhibited in museums, synagogues, public and private spaces, schools and corporate offices. These include the Tennessee State Museum, E. K. Rudin Gallery, located in Great Neck, New York, the Alvin J. Fine Museum in San Francisco, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, the Germantown Performing Arts Center, the Buckman Center, Perry Nicole Gallery and Mary Tomas Gallery, located in Dallas. Buchman is also considered a “legend” portrait artist after she was commissioned by the Women’s Foundation of Memphis in 2014. She has several pieces hanging in a local children’s hospital and Jerusalem Biennale as well. In addition to her featured work, Buchman has also taught art to children for nearly 25 years.
