Hannibal Gallery Exhibits Local Talent

  HANNIBAL – The current exhibits at the Hannibal Arts Council include a wide variety of media, including handmade fixed-blade knives from Shelby County residents Rodney Willey, Shane Barrick and Dallas Roan.  

  The Hannibal Arts Council is currently open to the public.  A visit to the gallery can be good for the soul and it is easy to adhere to social distancing guidelines while enjoying great art. All current exhibits are also available for viewing on the gallery page at hannibalarts.com and on  the in albums tab on the HAC Facebook page.     

  Gallery visitors, both in person and online, can also view monoprints by Hannibal artist Becky Evans, works in wood by the late John D. Fortenberry, jewelry by Elsberry artist Claire Hasemeier, paintings by Maryland Heights artist Mark Witzling and 33 works submitted for an open exhibit titled The One. 

  In additional to the works filling the galleries, the Photography Channel – a digital image exhibit shown on a 55-inch television – features 245 digital images submitted by 50 individuals along with featured photographer nandospektakular, who shares digital images from his Instagram profile.

  The exhibits will run through July 4 at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 S Main St. and are sponsored by Dr. Michael and Sherry Bukstein, Rita Plowman, Michael Gaines and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency. 

  HAC gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and Wednesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. The HAC gallery is closed on Tuesdays and Sundays.
