BOBBI BECK’s Mind Puzzles: An Exhibition of Autobiographical Artworks


August 7th, 2014 - September 30th, 2014

Program Locations:

August 6 through September 30, 2014
Bring the entire family to view and enjoy the mysterious and puzzling artworks of local artist Bobbi Beck. Her original drawings have always stirred the imagination and challenged others to see their own life experiences reflected in her complex creations. Her artworks are a little bizarre, a little surreal, but are always well-grounded and inspired by the reality of her everyday life. Her forms warp, twist, wiggle and morph into strange and free-form compositions that somehow defy logic, gravity and nature. These intricate and almost fairy-tale images are meshed with living creatures, inanimate objects, nature, machines and human forms. Visitors have described her work as reminding them of Alice in Wonderland. So stop by and travel down The Rabbit Hole at The Morningside Heights Library on the Upper West Side just adjacent to the Columbia University Campus and Harlem.
