Bobbi Beck: A Summer Art Exhibition


June 15th, 2012 - August 18th, 2012

Program Locations:

Bobbi Beck returns to The Morningside Heights Public Library for a new Summer Exhibition. Included are drawings not shown here before. She has had seven New York City Public Library Exhibitions as part of her commitment to encourage interest in the Arts at Public Libraries. She has always found libraries to be a welcoming refuge and source of inspiration. These drawings are autobiographical and reflect her day-to-day observations and feelings. They convey her emotional and visual renderings of humor, love, gender conflicts, marriage, family, health, joy and sorrow, anguish and global issues. Most of her drawings contain a symbolic triangle. Women, nature and technology. Women are usually the core element, combined with her lifetime interest in nature, and then integrated with machines and technology. Her human forms morph into plants, decorative elements, household objects, symbols, animals and whatever interests her at that time. The drawings contain many mysterious symbols and icons, some obvious, some secret in source and expression. Once a drawing is completed, she turns to the next page in her visual diary.
