Many of our patients have commented on the many lovely works of art hanging on the walls of our dental office. These are woodcuts created by regional artist and Fergus Falls, Minnesota, native Charles Beck. You may recall that I grew up in Fergus, too, and have had the pleasure of knowing the Beck family for pretty much my whole life.
Charlie’s woodcuts instantly pull me back to west central Minnesota’s rolling, wooded farmland that surrounds Fergus Falls, where I used to roam when I was a boy. I’m glad I can share these scenes with you.
Charlie’s daughter, Carolyn Beck Glesne, has been kind enough to have supplied me with a very informative bio of her father’s professional life. This comes next, followed by images of selected woodcuts that can be seen in the office.
