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.

Watercolors by Kim Smith

Exhibit will run through January 2020

Few things are as relaxing to me as moving water and color on paper." -Kim Smith

Smith is a self-taught, Christ inspired watercolor artist who finds the beauty in nature all around her. Kim began her venture into watercolor artistry only a year ago. As a later-in-life opportunity, Kim shares her experience in the hope of inspiring others to always be open to new adventures and to challenge their creativity.

Holly Ann Schenk: "Connecting the Dots" 

Exhibit will run through December 27

Artist's Statement: While I like doing both objective and non-objective, traditional and non-traditional work, color is always a central focus.  I love looking at the world and seeing the amazing array of colors and shapes.  It’s fun to see the relationships that surround us every day, and then to share that vision through my artwork.  My subjects come primarily from personal reference photos; I never go anywhere without my camera.  Some of my apparently non-objective pieces actually start out with architectural photo research.
