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 Liberty photographer Shane Immelt is on display in the Atrium Gallery through October.
From the Artist: Capturing and preserving images is my passion! A snippet in time, a memory, a portion of a dream or perhaps a bit of life as my minds-eye sees it! Sometimes rendered in black & white, sometimes in brilliant color and sometimes in black & white with a hint of color that draws your eye to what I want you to notice."
The artwork of local artists Jeanie Holle, Charmaine Hirsch, Elaine Silvius, and L.D. Herman is on display in the Lobby of the Community Center through November.
About the Artists: Jeanie Holle has lived in Missouri her whole life and has enjoyed art since childhood. Primarily self taught, Holle learned much from fellow artists and a number of classes and workshops. Her media include Oil, Graphite, Pen and Ink, and presently she is focused on Wood Burning (Pyrography).
Charmaine Hirsch has lived in the Kansas City Northland her whole life and studied art at the Metropolitan Community Colleges and through individual instruction. She works in Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Pastel, and Pyrography. Hirsch's favorite subjects to paint are landscapes and animals.
Elaine Silvius primarily paints with Acrylics on stretched canvas, but at times uses other mediums including Oils and Watercolor. She says, "subject matter for my paintings often comes from personal experiences during vacation travels. My trips to other countries and here in the U.S. provide great inspiration for artwork!"
L.D. Herman studied architecture at the University of Kansas. After a career of working with drawings for the construction of buildings, Herman turned to painting after his retirement. He works with acrylic media in preference to oil and watercolor. The bulk of his works are landscapes, including those in outdoor direct "plein air" style.
