Reception for "Dialogues II" featuring Wareham & Slusky

Liberty Arts hosted an opening reception for “Dialogues II” featuring the art of William Wareham and Joseph Slusky.

Dialogues II kicked off the 2014 Exhibition Calendar at Liberty Arts Gallery with a collection of drawings, paintings and sculpture by long-time friends and creative conspirators William Wareham and Joseph Slusky.

The opening drew plenty of friends, local artists and gallery patrons who came to celebrate, have fun and enjoy the beautifully curated exhibition.

Genny and Bruce

Genny Axtman and Bruce Anthony performed classic hits from the 70s and 80s, including a rousing singalong rendition of Tommy Tutone’s “867-5309/Jenny” that transformed the gallery into a temporary dancehall.

Corner Conversation

The live music made conversation difficult, but these two managed to find a quiet confabulatory corner.

Jessah Breault

Jessah Breault, new Gallery Manager for Siskiyou Arts Council in Mt. Shasta enjoyed an initiatory visit to Liberty Arts Gallery where she contemplated the art…

Man of the Hour
