The Artist Spotlight
An artist from Hannibal, Missouri, Pat Kerns is fascinated by ordinary objects, especially those with age and character. Pat's fine art focuses on and highlights the beauty of these objects through whatever media and style best tells that story. Pat is also fascinated by rust and worn finishes and likes to express ordinary objects in often not so ordinary ways. She is currently working in pastel and fiber dyed batiks.
Pat teaches all levels of art in both public and private settings and is currently a professor at Culver Stockton College. She has won awards in multiple local and state competitions and has had work in multiple juried exhibitions.

Art House is a vibrant and welcoming center founded on the belief that creative arts enrich lives. Through rotating exhibits, focused instruction and educational outreach, our mission is to create opportunities for the economic and artistic growth of established and emerging artists and to nurture the community’s appreciation and understanding of the arts.
The building at 531 Court Street in downtown Fulton, Missouri, is the home for the nonprofit Art House gallery as well as two other businesses: Court Street Custom Framing and Studio Seven. In just one year we have become the artistic hub in Fulton’s Brick District. We are a center for photography, framing, and the promotion and celebration of art for our community.
The Art House gallery is a 501c3 charitable organization. The goals for this charitable enterprise include the promotion of the arts throughout our community through the display and sale of fine art, the support of local and regional artists, and the hosting of art education and other events. The Art House also serves as a centerpiece in the efforts of the Brick District to bring more events, tourists, and businesses to our historic downtown.
The gallery is open six days a week. We represent over 100 regional artists and feature paintings, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, hand-made greeting cards and much more. The Art House hosts classes teaching painting, ceramics, jewelry making, drawing, fiber arts, and other fine arts as well as other events. People of all skill levels can explore the fun of creating art with music and drinks during “Fun Art Fridays.” The gallery is also available as a venue for receptions, parties, and other events. Our two major regional events in the year are Callaway Plein Air, held the last weekend of May, and Autumn on the Bricks, held the second Saturday in October.
Exhibits are rotated multiple times per year. View our exhibit schedule for updated exhibit dates and details. Opening receptions are free and open to the public.
