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.


Hans Baldung Grien – “Untitled, 2013” by Klaus Pinter. Austrian artist Pinter sent this interactive project through the mail, and gallery visitors created their custom paper sculptures during the opening reception.

Meanwhile, Anne Pinkowski pays “Homage to Jasper Johns” (background).
