The Big Apple! A wonderful place, you can meet so many interesting people in this city. People who are wise, people who are fun, people who are creative and you even meet those people who are exceptionally special.
Speaking of exceptionally special, a familiar face is returning to The St. Agnes Library for a new Spring Exhibition, the talented artist Bobbi Beck. Drawings that were never shown before will be included in the exhibit. She has had a good number of New York Public Library exhibitions, encouraging people to be more interested in the arts at public libraries.
Bobbi always thought of libraries as being great sourcse of inspiration. Her autobiographical drawings reflect her everyday experiences and expresses her emotional and visual renderings of humor, love, gender, conflicts, marriage, family, health, joy, sorrow, anguish and global issues. Most of her drawings contain a symbolic triangle. Women, nature and technology are usually the core elements.
Her human images morph into plants, decorative elements, household objects, symbols, animals and whatever peaks her interest at the time. The drawings also may contain strange symbols and icons, some are understandable and others are secretly expressed. Once the drawing is finished she goes to the next page in her art journal.
The exhibit is free, and is ongoing until May 31, 2012. Stop by, grab a book, and marvel in the art of Bobbi Beck. I sure am.
