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...

Dedication Applauds New Additions to Public Art...

It was a beautiful day for the dedication of the East Lancaster Traffic Control Cabinets Public Art Project. We had a great crowd of Artists, Fort Worth Public Art Representatives, City Council Members, Police Dept. and Community members. 12 locations along E. Lancaster Ave. have been vinyl wrapped in as many Artist's styles. Take the time to travel the avenue and see the art. I am proud to be a part of the dynamic Public Art scene in this wonderful City.

Gregory's painting Summer Serenade was licensed by the FWPA to decorate the Traffic Control Cabinet located at E. Lancaster Ave.

Summer Serenade is a wrap...

Public Art Council Approves Final Design for E. Lancaster Mural...

February 13,2017 - Fort Worth, TX - The Fort Worth Public Art Council unanimously approved Gregory Beck's design Pieces of the Past, Present & Future for the East Lancaster Police Department exterior wall mural. The project is an extension of artist Jack Mackie’s Public Art Master Plan for the East Lancaster Corridor (2009); which recommended artwork at the Fort Worth Police Department’s East Division Police Station as part of the City's ongoing efforts to artistically enhance our great City. Fabrication will begin upon completion of the final contractual agreements and we look forward to creating this intricately illustrated salute to the history and diverse culture of East Fort Worth. Following multiple community meetings, gathering input from the enthusiastic and dedicated community including local historians, photographers, City Council representatives, the police department and area supporters we have assembled a great collection of images that represent the Past, Present and Future of this vital Fort Worth area. My thanks goes out to the Arts Council for their professional and caring approach to developing this idea from a vision to a soon-to-be-realized installation.
