Liberty Arts News In a Flash

  • GRAND RE-OPENING - APRIL 22nd [6:00 pm - 9:00 pm]
    In September of 2016 Liberty Arts’ sculpture studio moved to 918 Pearl Street in the Cleveland-Holloway neighborhood of East Durham, in the space previously occupied by Triangle Brewing Company near SEEDS and Counter Culture Coffee.
    On April 22, 2017 from 6:00pm – 9:00pm we invite you to come out and see our new digs and how we have settled in. We will have demos going throughout the evening showing the various mediums our artists work and teach classes in; including welding, plasma cutting, glassblowing, letterpress, and more.
    This will be a fun event for everyone with live entertainment, local food, and drinks.

  • Liberty Arts Glass Studio Opens
    Liberty Arts announces the opening of its 1,000 square foot furnace-based glass blowing studio and coldworking shop. In keeping with the mission of Liberty Arts, it operates as a non-profit studio with public access.
    The Liberty Arts Glass Studio will offer introductory to advanced classes, along with public demonstrations and events. Private instruction is available at all levels. Beginners will learn glassblowing by creating objects such as cups, tumblers and paperweights. More advanced students will create functional, ornamental pieces of glass art.

  • Liberty Arts on HB2
    Liberty Arts is a sculpture studio and foundry whose purpose is to enrich our communities with arts experiences that inspire, empower, educate and entertain. 
    We believe strongly that diversity enhances our ability to fulfill that purpose, and in fact fosters a more creative and innovative artforce.  Liberty Arts welcomes all to our inclusive atmosphere.
    We do NOT support the NC Legislature’s passage of HB2.
