Working with the City of Liberty, William Jewell College and Mid-Continent Public Library, the Liberty Arts Commission has developed four gallery spaces in Liberty that offer exhibits throughout the year. You don't just have to be paying your water bill, getting in your workout or checking out a new book to enjoy the art on display! Stop by any of these locations to take in the latest exhibits.
The artwork of Esther Boyd is now on display in the Liberty City Hall atrium for public viewing.
About the Artist: Boyd grew up in a very small town on the western side of Kansas. Hot, dry and flat, where being an artist is not an approved occupation. Her mother was an artist of sorts herself and always encouraged Boyd to paint and make other art. Over her on and off again career, she has studied fine art at Bethany College in Lindsborg, KS and textile design at KU. She has been a graphic designer and studied with various artists.
The works on display here were made over a period of several years and confirm her interest in painting beautiful things. Boyd loves working with color and using brushwork to highlight the energy of the subject.

About the artist: Brattin graduated from Missouri Southern University in Joplin, MO with a degree in Art Education. She currently teaches art at the Northland Career Center in Platte City. Brattin has worked in various mediums and currently is exploring the world of acrylic pour painting.
