The film "Seeing Beck," by Wallwork and Mike Hazard, introduces us to the work of a longtime Western Minnesota printmaker.


"When you begin cutting a block for a print, do you already have it worked out in your mind what you are going to do?"

Beck: "That's one thing about the discipline of printmaking. You have to have a pretty good idea what you are going to do and have it pretty well planned. On the other hand, hardly any print turns out the way you had envisioned in the beginning. You always make changes, and things to change your mind about certain things. You've got to be open to some of the accidents that happen and take advantage of them. Because they might be better than what you planned on doing."
