Rick Beck: form and Valerie Beck: pattern at gallery WDO in Charlotte, NC

Rick Beck

gallery WDO, located in the South End district of Charlotte, NC, is proud to present an exhibition of works, from Apr. 7 through Apr. 29, by North Carolina husband and wife artists Rick and Valerie Beck. Though both artists work in the medium of glass, Rick and Valerie's work attests to the infinite possibilities of glasswork, his emphasizing complex issues of form, space and light while her vessels provide a much more delicate expression rich with energy and color.

gallery WDO shares the honor of showing Rick's work with the prestigious Heller Gallery in New York. With regard to his work Rick offers: "My work in glass is a synthesis of human and mechanical forms, with an emphasis on formal aspects. I enjoy the interplay of the visual (visceral) versus the verbal (descriptive/technical)."
