Shannon Webster Art Studio & Gallery

Shannon Webster is an artist who lives and works in Columbia, Missouri. A native of Boonville, Missouri, his colorful paintings feature scenes around Missouri and places he has traveled to, such as New York, Italy, and England. His distinctive personal style emanates energy and movement with his use of color, scale, and a variety of techniques.


Shannon has operated his art studio/gallery in downtown Columbia’s Arts District for over five years and features his oil and acrylic paintings, pastel paintings, and framed prints. Along with being a place to create art, the studio is home to his design business, where he creates packaging designs and websites for national brands. Webster is involved in numerous art-related organizations, including the North Village Arts District and Museum Associates Inc. supporting the MU Museum of Art and Archaeology.  [Directions to the studio]


One of Shannon’s recent notable projects is a 70 ft. x 30 ft. painted mural titled ‘Reflections & Wishes’ in Columbia. It is situated in the recently renamed Wish Tree Courtyard, honoring the mural itself. The centerpiece of the mural is a magnificent painted tree that supports 70 hangtags adorned with written wishes the community has submitted. Adjacent to the tree, Shannon skillfully paints vibrant warehouse windows, creating a lifelike appearance. These windows reflect city landmarks, including the Tiger Hotel, Ernie’s Cafe, Jesse Hall, the Mizzou columns, and Columbia’s City Hall.
