Professor Kim Beck‘s work is included in the exhibition “The Beginning of Everything: An Exhibition of Drawings” at the University of Minnesota’s Katherine E. Nash Gallery, on view January 21 through March 28.
Drawing is, in many ways, the most versatile of all artistic mediums. It can serve as the beginning of an idea, the beginning of a more ambitious project, or the beginning of a completed artwork unto itself. Because drawing is so elemental, so direct, such a primary means of expression, it is cherished by artists and audiences for its immediate and intimate access to the possibilities of creative expression. “The Beginning of Everything” surveys a broad range of approaches to drawing, and includes works from a wide variety of geographies, time periods, and esthetic perspectives.
