3 years, 8 months ago Posted in: Past Exhibits 0

Liberty Arts Gallery presents “Homage,” a fine art exhibition of works created in the style of famous artists from history.

“Homage” features work by local, national and international contemporary artists working in the styles of well-know artists from history with the intention to honor that which has come before, and to educate gallery visitors with a little art history.

NOTE: Names that appear in Bold Italics below are the historical artists being honored, and names in Bold are the current artists who created the work.
