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. 

Gallery Locations

Atrium Gallery at Liberty City Hall and at the Liberty Community Center

Erlene Flowers: Water color, acrylic, oil and other paintings

(Exhibit will run through September)

Erlene holds Bachelors, Masters and Specialist degrees. After graduation from a technical high school, where she majored in art, she earned a living as a working artist doing graphic work in Michigan. Her interest in art started very early in life, and she has been involved in art– creating, designing, organizing exhibits and teaching– ever since, often times working the administrative and organizational part of shows, fairs and festivals.

Susan Ferguson: "Inside Out" Exhibit

(Exhibit will run through September)

This exhibit explores the impact of creativity and art on the healing process and on emotional health. Included in the exhibit will be several pieces from Ferguson’s “Bra Therapy Project” collection plus nine new wall hangings made during 2019. 

Ferguson, of Independence, MO, is an emerging weaver and fiber artist. She works at a rigid heddle loom, weaving mostly with her fingers instead of using traditional weaving tools such as shuttles or bobbins. Her work is primarily abstract, with a sort of inherent messiness and disheveled quality about it.
