Celebration Wins Award at Texas Sculpture Association Show…

Celebration - One of 4 sculptures in the Carnivale' Mystique series by Gregory Beck was awarded Second Place Honors at the TSA’s 2018 Membership Show by Juror Pat Bodnyk, Holder Dane Gallery & Art Studios, Grapevine, TX. 

Pat’s Comments (TSA Artist News and Opportunities Newsletter – 3-23-18)

Second Place: Celebration by Greg Beck. This lovely piece has it all: movement, soft perfectly done patina colors, additional bands of metal that top off the movement and carries the eye up and away into that space of energy. Title, base nicely done and overall a complete presentation of character makes this sculpture second place yet first in figurative.

Exhibited sculpture by various member artists will remain on view through March 31st. If you can make it to this outstanding venue you will find some amazing art by TSA members and enjoy Grapevine’s enchanting downtown with its art-destination hospitality.  

A special Thanks to Breanne Schwarz and the others at TSA for their efforts in assembling this wonderful exhibition.

Location:

Grapevine Convention and Visitors Bureau Tower Gallery located at 636 South Main Street, Grapevine, TX.

Fort Worth Public Art Project Update....

We are proud to reveal a little Sneak Peek as the first of the large panels leaves the paint studio. This is part one of the many large panels that we will be completing this spring. Stay tuned at www.ArtByGregoryBeck.com or by subscribing to my YouTube channel. Thanks for watching!

In My Painting Studio...

Happy 2018! A little insight behind the scenes in my painting studio. Enjoy.

FWPA End of Year Update...

We have started the large panels. The process involves prepping the material for paint adhesion then applying an etching primer to the surface. These are vital steps in assuring the color layers have the correct substrate to last for years. Enjoy this little clip... 

Liberato is finished...

They are completed. Custom hanging system. Ready for travel to the final destination.
