“Liberty Scroll” Opening & 5th Anniversary Celebration – May 17

The Liberty Scroll exhibit opens Friday, May 17th with a reception from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

This celebration marks the 5th Anniversary of Liberty Arts Gallery existing in Yreka.

Liberty Scroll, the brainchild of Dunsmuir artist Finley Fryer, is a 54” by 80 ft canvas collaboration of 20 Siskiyou County artists that morphs two separate yet connected concepts.

As a young boy Fryer was impressed with a map of the Klamath River that was so long it was placed on two rollers. In later years he was reminded of this map when he read about Jack Kerouac writing his beat classic On the Road on one single strip of teletype paper 120 feet long.

William Wareham - Liberty Scroll
Artist William Wareham (R) makes his creative contribution to the Liberty Scroll.

To bring this concept to life, Liberty Arts hired local artist Bill Durovchic to construct a contained, rolled canvas that revealed a 4’ x 54” area for each artist to paint. Only a 6” strip of the previous artists work was visible as artists in turn executed their painting.

Shasta Regional Foundation provided funding for this collaborative community project from their Community Building Arts Initiative. Having taken over a year to complete we are looking forward to it’s debut on May 17th.
