The artwork of six artists who grew up in Liberal is coming home. Marc Shank has created his own town complete with city map and townspeople with distinctive personalities in his "Scurvyville" painting series. Dan Koons' work captures moments in time in black and white as well as color photographs. His wife, Susan Koons, fabricates jewelry pieces using silver, gold, enamel, and the creative use of unique stones. John McDonald has blown glass including paperweights, vessel forms and a sculptural table. The vibrant colors in the panoramic views photographed by Michael Strickland are spectacular. Large wave bowls, vessel forms, and a floor lamp display the glassblowing talents of Lyn Harp. This is a truly wonderful exhibit featuring a variety of media and artistic styles created by some of Liberal's own. The true depth of the talent on display with this exhibit is amazing and will "wow" everyone who comes in to view it. The exhibit dates are from now through August 10, 2013 and the Opening Reception is July 6th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
Our hours of operation during this exhibit will be Tuesday through Friday 9-12 and 1-5, Saturday from 2-5; closed on Sunday and Monday. As always there is no admission fee for viewing exhibits at the center.
