Still and Silent Place
 Paintings by J. F. Goff

jamesgoffJim Goff (1920-2007) was born in Two Harbors, Minnesota, and moved with his family to Sioux City as a child. After graduating from East High School, he enlisted in the Army Air Corps, remaining until the end of World War II. Then he returned to Sioux City, where he received a degree from Morningside College in 1950. He then received a master of fine arts degree from Drake University in 1957. For 29 years he taught art at East High School, while also teaching classes at the Sioux City Art Center and Western Iowa Tech Community College.

While he was beloved as an art teacher, this exhibition celebrates his career as one of Sioux City’s finest artists. He began painting seriously during the 1960s. Best known for his landscapes, Goff based most of his art on the environment in and around Sioux City, developing a style that represented perfectly the sense of quiet and solitude that is still found in rural Siouxland. The Art Center will work with many of the dozens of private collectors of his watercolors in the Siouxland area to bring together the best examples of his work.

The West That Has Passed
Paintings by Tom L. Roberts

tom robertsThe West That Has Passed is a combination of paintings exploring the historical past of the American West from the Voyage of Lewis and Clark to the discovery of the wonders of the west. The paintings interpreting the journey of Lewis and Clark were all inspired by journal entries and nurtured by the artist’s twenty summers as a seasonal park ranger in Yellowstone National Park. Tom L. Roberts studied art at the University of Northern Iowa where he earned a BA in Art Education in 1978. His teaching career in art has spanned the last 35 years with positions in Iowa; Virginia; Kobe, Japan; and Vienna, Austria, where he taught both two- and three-dimensional art.  He lives in Sioux City where he teaches three-dimensional art at North High School.
