In the Gallery: James Beck

October – December 2022:

Be captivated by the vibrant photography of James Beck, now in the library’s gallery. Beck’s photography reflects his rural and farm upbringing, as well as his business travels in the agricultural industry. Much of Beck’s photography comes from the St. Croix River Valley, greater Minnesota, Wisconsin and California.

Jim’s favorite photographic subjects include flora and fauna, autumn and winter landscapes, and motifs of natural bodies of water. His signature presentation is to print his images in glass-like acrylic (rather than on the more traditional paper or board with frames). He finds the depth of his work is best translated in the light-filled filter made possible with an acrylic mount.

Meet James Beck at an artist reception on Tuesday, November 1 from 6:00 – 7:30 PM. The exhibit will be at the library through December and is viewable during library hours.
