Event Description

Philip Laber, former Professor Emeritus of Art at Northwest Missouri State, will showcase his works in the Musser McColm mansion. His exhibit, House of Cards, is a suite of experimental printmaking that examines and metaphorically represents American and global cultures and politics and the resulting consequences upon daily life, edited through the eyes of a mythical and whimsical “Everyman”. The works are a hybrid approach that combines traditional etching and engraving processes with digital imagining and contemporary printmaking. 

In the summer of 2016, Laber retired from teaching photography, printmaking, and drawing at Northwest Missouri State to become a full-time artist. His creative interests remain experimental printmaking and photography, and more recently, exploring acrylic painting. The public will have an opportunity to meet Philip Laber on Sunday, June 25, at the Friends Annual Ice Cream Social.
