We are excited to announce a new temporary exhibit at the Pope County Museum.
ARTIST + MUSE Woodcuts by Charles Beck from the Timothy Murphy Collection
The exhibit is made possible by the Rourke Art Gallery in Moorhead, Minnesota and is only here until the end of October, so stop in and see us soon!
Charles Beck was born in Fergus Falls in 1923, he studied art at the University of Minnesota where he was first introduced to woodcut prints. Throughout his life, Beck’s primary subject was the landscape and nature of Otter Tail County.
Poet Timothy Murphy was an admirer and friend of beck and derived both enjoyment and inspiration from his friend’s artwork.
Both woodcut prints and selected poems inspired by the woodcuts are on exhibit at the Pope County Museum.
The prints must be seen in person to truly appreciate them. We hope you will stop in and see them. We are open Tuesday-Saturday 10-5.
