A Night With Archie Scott Gobber & Mike Erickson


by Melaney Mitchell

Many moons ago, Saturday, February 25th, Subterranean Gallery hosted its final hot tub lecture. The culmination was highly performative, and at times, the conversation involved the audience more than the lecturers. Artist Archie Scott Gobber, and moderator/artist Mike Erickson, artists represented by and co-workers at the Dolphin Gallery. Gobber’s work is well known for its eye-catching quality and clever wordplay that work as a vehicle for social and political commentary. Moderator and artist Mike Erickson has worked in New York and Los Angeles at the MOMA and Gemini Graphic Editions Limited in LA. Gobber and Erickson are both KCAI alumni and base their painting practices in Kansas City. Continue reading

LANDESCAPES Opening Reception: New Work By Brock Hildebrandt

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

January 7th, 2011 from 6:00 – 10:00 pm. Subterranean Gallery will hold a public reception showcasing new work by Brock Hildebrandt.

Subterranean Gallery 4124 Warwick Blvd. apt. b, Kansas City, MO 64111 (Use Back Door Entrance)

Work will be on view by appointment from Saturday January 9th – January 28th


Hildebrandt’s work responds to Kansas City’s parks, parking lots, and imagined inner workings that come from his perspective as a transitory inhabitant of the city. As commuter, renter, and artist, Hildebrandt’s on site sketches inform larger studio based work; forcing the landscape to mature within the dual role of the studio/living space. Contained within the work are beautiful layers, cutaways revealing portions of earth, complex line work, and possibly the most overwhelming quality: the presence of the human hand within each piece. Brock was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, studied at the Kansas City Art Institute, and currently resides in Kansas City, Missouri.
