November 10-December 5, 2017
Reception: November 10 • 5–8pm

Imagine Pablo Picasso in a three-piece suit, and you’ve imagined Bob Urban. He began making art as a youngster, but soon faced an obstacle: he had to earn a living. After tours in the US Navy, University of Southern California, the University of New Mexico and the University of California, Berkeley – where he nourished his artistic impulse by creating posters for car dealers – he got a hair cut, donned a suit, and went to work for Life magazine, first in San Francisco, then in New York. Next stop: Helene Curtis in Chicago. Then it was off to San Francisco and the beginning of a career in advertising and marketing that eventually led him to launch his own marketing consultancy—still wearing coats and ties, and making art for his kids and grandkids after hours—until he turned 70. Whereupon he sold his consultancy, donated his coats and ties to the Salvation Army, and turned an after-hours avocation into a full-time pursuit.

The consequences can be enjoyed in this exhibition, which features drawings and paintings of portraits, landscapes, and fantasy.
