The St. Agnes Library Presents The Art Of Bobbi Beck

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.

    Oh man it’s ending soon! I guess I should slot in a free day to drop by the library. A couple of my friends have been telling me how good the exhibitions are, and now that you’ve mentioned it, just makes it all the more important that I drop by! Thanks for reminding of this! :)

    Thank you so much for your visit and review of my exhibit “Bobbi Beck: A Spring Exhibition at St. Agnes Library”. I have been exhibiting my Autobiographical Drawings at several New York Public Libraries for over a year. These venues provide an excellent opportunity for local artists to share their work with fellow New Yorkers. The response by library visitors has been very rewarding and encouraging to me as an artist. Especially helpful are all the Library Managers at local branches who coordinate these exhibitions with artists.

        My new exhibition is at The Morningside Heights Public Library at 2900 Broadway at 113th Street and will be on display until August 18th, 2012.

        Bobbi Beck: A Summer Art Exhibition

        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.
