Art Exhibits

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.

Liberty Community Center: Gallery du Jour: A gallery of Images by Shane Immelt

(Exhibit will run through March)

Artist's Statement: This exhibit includes digital photographic images captured over the past decade. Composed, enhanced (vibrancy and saturation) but not manipulated. All printed, mounted and framed by myself on my own equipment. As an old-school, snobbish photo purist, I strive for the same image quality I sought in the "Wet photo-processing" days. I expect my images to outlast me by decades, if not have a century.
