HANNIBAL, Mo. — The November/December Art For The Health Of It exhibit at the Hannibal Arts Council’s satellite gallery within Blessing Health Hannibal features works by oil painter Steven Walker.

Walker is a traditional artist from Palmyra known for his work in plein air painting and form bending ceramics. Using traditional mediums, the artist treks off the beaten path finding beauty in humble places through his plein air, capturing the moment in oils. His plein air works have been recognized among many of his fellow artists, as well as within local plein air circuits.

Most notable features of his work are his ability to find the unseen colors through intense underpainting and experimental color use in plein air, as well as his seamless circular teapots that are fully functional and challenge the idea of a usable ceramic in a contemporary way.

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