The Hannibal Arts Council will host a soup and dessert fundraiser at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 10. The event will include homemade soups, breads and desserts followed by special holiday performances. Share the Joy combines two great things, food and art, and will be held at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 S Main St. 

Immediately following dinner, guests will enjoy a piano performance by HAC Executive Director Michael Gaines, who will be joined by special guest artists, including cellist and vocalist Katie Schisler and harmonica player Stanley Clark. A variety of traditional, contemporary, and original holiday music selections will be performed. Hannibal artist Pat Kerns will create an art piece during the concert. The finished piece will be offered for silent auction at the end of the evening. Guests will also have an opportunity to shop the 99 bucks…or less Art Sale featured in the gallery.
