SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital - Shawnee  is proud to feature the artwork of artist Beth Wilhelm on the Galley Wall in the hospital’s West Tower. 

Wilhelm’s art medium is watercolors on paper and also watercolor batiks. Watercolor batiks are a contemporary form created by Wilhelm while she was teaching high school students the transition from oil to watercolors.

“Working with paper I am able to define much more closely to capture the expressions of loved pets.  Where the Batiks do allow me to loosen up much more,” stated Wilhelm.

In addition to being featured in the St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital Gallery Wall, Wilhelm has paintings in various galleries in Virginia, Alabama, Florida, and Oklahoma. She is currently working on a location in Dallas, Texas.   Wilhelm’s art can be viewed locally in OKC and Tulsa. The St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital Gallery Wall is curated by the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art. 

SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital - Shawnee and the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art are working together to connect the world of healing and the world of art.  The intent of the hospital’s gallery is to showcase local artists, as well as provide a visual experience which promotes the healing and soothing benefits of beautiful artwork.  The gallery is located in the hallway that connects the main hospital to the new West Tower.
