Works by Louisiana, Mo., artist on display at Hannibal Clinic through October

HAC health of it

HANNIBAL, Mo. — The September/October “Art For The Health Of It” exhibit at the Hannibal Arts Council’s satellite gallery within the Hannibal Clinic features works by Louisiana, Mo., artist Dennis Babbitt.

Babbitt primarily paints the landscape “en plein air” using oils or watercolor. His decision to pursue the landscape goes back many years ago to the desire to see the beauty and calm that surrounds each of us.

Art has been a part of Babbitt’s life since childhood. He received his bachelor’s degree in printmaking from Missouri State University in 1975. His art is influenced by the work of the Hudson River school, California and Pennsylvania Impressionist schools and specific artists such as Skip Whitcomb, Sam Hyde Harris and Percy Grey. 

“Art For The Health Of It” was created as a year-round partnership between the Hannibal Arts Council and Hannibal Clinic. The exhibit series features original works by local artists and may be viewed in the clinic’s west entrance reception/waiting area.
