Legacy Exhibition 2018 - Archetype - Robert Beck with Katherine Hackl

September 8 to October 7

New Hope Arts is pleased to present their 2018 Legacy Artist, Robert Beck, with the opening of the exhibition Robert Beck: Archetype, showcasing 40 paintings from his most recent work.

For more than than 25 years Robert Beck has been the artist among us, painting images of remarkable latitude, unsentimental and vivid, evolving as a painter whose vision delights. His body of work focuses on our time, a second look at ordinary objects, landscape and people - capturing a viewpoint we see but don't always notice, giving us an opportunity to pay attention.

Robert Beck is featured as our Legacy Artist for 2018 in keeping with our exhibition series begun in 2017. The Legacy we celebrate is living contemporary artists who have shaped and contributed to the regional arts community.

Katherine Hackl's distinctive pottery is a collection of hand–thrown functional stoneware and porcelain forms decorated with a hand–carved sgraffito technique. Each piece is a unique combination of elegant forms layered with botanical images, patterns, and illustrations.

ARCHETYPE opens Saturday, September 8, 5-8, and Sunday September 9, 1-4, at New Hope Arts Center, 2 Stockton St., New Hope PA. The show runs through October 7, with weekend hours, 1-4. If you would like to make a special appointment to visit the show, please call Robert Beck at 215-982-0074.
