Robert Beck returns to Morpeth Contemporary with an exhibition of recent paintings featuring three locales — Maine, Manhattan and the Bucks-Hunterdon region.
“Robert Beck: Recent Work” runs from Oct. 8 through 31. Morpeth Contemporary is located at 43 W. Broad St. in Hopewell, N.J.
For three decades, Beck has been an integral part of the Bucks County art community, both as a leader and an iconoclast, as well as having painted and exhibited internationally.
This year Beck’s paintings have been featured at the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia, the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie, and the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, which is currently presenting a career retrospective of his work titled: “It’s Personal, the Art of Robert Beck,” that runs through the end of the year.
The exhibition at Morpeth Contemporary includes both the studio images and work from life that have been the foundation of Beck’s celebrated reputation. The subjects range widely but are comfortably tethered by a strong personal relevance for the viewer.
