“The Hannibal Arts Council is so proud to help Hannibal Regional Office host this exhibit each year.  It is such a pleasure to work with agency staff to present original works by consumers with developmental disabilities,” said Michael Gaines, HAC director.  “We have been on board with this exhibit since its first year and have been so pleased to see the exhibit grow.  The most rewarding aspect is seeing the consumers react when they see their work in a gallery setting and when they sell a piece!”

An important part of the exhibit are the People’s Choice Awards. The public is invited to view the exhibit and cast their votes. 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. There will be an evening opportunity to view the exhibit during Second Saturday Gallery Night from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 11.
