Evie G Watts - Show Opening | September 13, 2019 | 6-9pm

A new chapter begins…

After a few years of studio administration and management in two different organizations, I’m getting back into the studio myself to make stuff.

Feeling a bit rusty (ha!), and ready to create things other than schedules, emails, lists and conversations.

This show will be the outcome of my summer-long foray back into the fold of metal, clay and wood.

I bring what I’ve learned. I offer you a respite from your computer screen, your everyday surroundings. My hope is that you come away with a new way to look at old things.

Evie’s show will run in the Liberty Arts Gallery through October 13th.

Fallapalooza | September 21, 2019 | 6-10pm

As summer ends, help us bring in the Autumn with Liberty Arts first ever Fallapalooza. We will welcome the Fall Equinox with fire, music, drinks and food, all brought to you with our own seasonal flare.

On September 21st from 6:00pm to 10:00pm our doors will open and our studio will be full of great drinks from some of your neighborhood breweries. Drinks will be accompanied by delicious seasonal foods prepared just for you. Make sure to save room for dessert as we will have smores pits set up where you can kick off bone fire season and create your own sweet treats.

Dance off some of the eats by getting your groove on with live music from one of our favorite DJs and a local rockin’ band. Need a break from the dance floor? Catch a dazzling performance from a fire spinner who is here to mesmerize.

Is the thought of being inside our art studio giving you a creative itch? Come dressed in your favorite fall attire. Dawn a dress full of autumn leaves, weave a seasonal flower crown, cover yourself in the colors of fall or embody your favorite fall critter! Need some assistance? Stop by our costume crown and tiara table where you can create your very own equinox persona and join in the fun!

Why not cruise through our gallery while partying inside the studio?  Our artists and their works will be through out the studio and ready to welcome you. We are always happy to give tours and introduce you to what we do here at Liberty Arts.

4th Annual Iron Pour | November 16, 2019

On Saturday, November 16th we will be melting 3000 lbs of iron at 3000 degrees right in the middle of Durham Central Park. Sound crazy? It's just what we do for fun. 

If you've never seen an Iron Pour, think about a gritty ballet where all the dancers are decked out in helmets and head-to-toe in leathers, dancing around a roaring furnace and pouring red hot metal into molds.
