|Beverly Erschell in her Fort Thomas home studio.|
Born Beverly Helmbold in 1934 in Fort Thomas, Erschell—one of Cincinnati's most talented and well-received artists—resides here still today. She's prolific (she's painted thousands of pictures she says) and well-known. Her paintings have been featured in exhibitions at Weston Art Gallery, Contemporary Arts Center, and Dayton Art Institute, and her work is in the permanent collections of Cincinnati Art Museum, and many corporate and family collections. She has had solo and group shows across the United States, in Palm Beach, New York City, Chicago and Dallas. And she still paints, about four hours a day, and has a calendar filled with the life of an artist—gallery showings and requests, museum exhibits, and travel.
