about - Beverly Zimmer, Richland, WA

American Sculptor, Beverly Zimmer

Since 1991, collectors worldwide have enjoyed Beverly's work in clay, bronze, silver, and gold.
Her impressive ability to render a unique blending of powerful movement, graced with delicate detail, makes every sculpture a whirlwind of lyrical form.  
Specializing in Equine sculpture and jewelry, Beverly's work has been awarded and Internationally acclaimed for nearly 30 years.  From the beginning of her career, she has been a recognizable presence in the equine industry.  Years of being with horses from birthing, and through training gave the sculptor a deeper understanding of their work and behavior.  Beverly's unmatched sensitivity in sculpting these cherished horses has been her signature in the equine art market.

Sculptor, Beverly Zimmer, graduated from the Tyler School of Art (Temple University) in 1990.  During her enrollment, she challenged the academic boundaries by working in more of a performance art genre.  Her ambition in exploring the equine form in unconventional context was received enthusiastically. Undergraduate work included a pseudo birthing of a mechanical human from a horse sculpture.  During this exhibit, a human was "born" from the sculpture, emerging on equine prosthesis, and mimicked a horse's movement free standing.  This performance was further enhanced by the presence of a live horse moving in tandem with the birthed human on the prosthetic devices.   The following progression was a suspended mobile rendition of a skeletal equine, that housed a human operator within the sculpture.  While strapped into the thoracic cavity and limbs of the skeletal structure, the operator could simulate a horse's movement and gaits.  
Inevitably, the safety of undergraduate freedom rarely supports an artist, especially one who raises horses.  Luckily, commissions kept the artist busy full time following her university departure.  Branching off into jewelry design and commercial designs for home decor brought the sculptor financial stability.   Launching her career in Southeastern PA, Beverly found her place in the equine industry.  Beverly spent many years living in South Florida, and establishing her business through working at a foundry and at a jewelers.  She has also lived in Aiken, SC, and currently resides in Richland, WA.
