Current Perspectives

I was fortunately enough to see Mr. Gobber speak at the last current perspectives. I recommend checking out his work if you like typography and sign painting. 

Archie Scott Gobber received his B.F.A. degree in painting from KCAI in 1988. Since then he has been in countless local and national group and solo exhibitions. He currently is a Review Studios artist resident and just completed a large-scale public artwork for Missouri Bank and Trust entitled “Dream.” His work can be found in private, corporate and institutional collections including those of Hallmark Cards Inc., Sprint Nextel, Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas, Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art at Kansas State University, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art at Johnson County Community College and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Gobber received a Charlotte Street Award in 1998 and was an artist in residence at the Missouri State Fair in 2003. In 2004, his work “It’s a Free Country” was raised on the H&R Block Artspace Project Wall, and his Lawrence Lithography Workshop print, “Doers,” was included in the show “Artists’ Interrogate: Politics and War” at the Milwaukee Art Museum. His work has been reviewed both locally and nationally in publications that include New Art Examiner, Art Papers, Art in America and Artforum. He is represented in Kansas City by Dolphin and in Dallas by Marty Walker Gallery.
