Walk with Ken Beck

My Danvers High School classmate Ken Beck (center) invites us to walk with him through a retrospective show of his art work. Seventy-eight of his paintings are on display. He titled the exhibition “Acts of Painting: One at a Time.”

Ken writes, "Each Walk-Through will take place on a Sunday afternoon at 4pm and will last about an hour. The event is meant to provide an opportunity for me to answer your questions and to talk personally and informally about my work as whole.  Light refreshments will be served."

Dates: Sundays January 20, February 10, March 10, and April 14, 2013.
Location: 15 Berkeley Street, Boston, MA (in the South End of Boston, on the ground floor of Atelier 505, in the offices of Hammond Residential - South End).

See my previous posting about Ken Beck, Artist and the June 2012 column
Remembering Danvers - The Education of a young artist in which Ken describes the art teachers in Danvers who influenced and inspired him.

I recommend this exhibition. I attended the November opening and enjoyed seeing the wide range of styles in which Ken has painted over the years.  Impressive!

Ken writes, "Most artists in their own life time never get the opportunity to have a large retrospective of their work (78 pieces in this case) available for public viewing for 6 months. Thus I intend to share and enjoy this experience to the fullest."  The first Walk-Through in December "was so well-received, I have decided to continue this practice once a month for the duration of my exhibition."
