26 Apr Noblesville Visitor’s Center Art Exhibit: Walt Thacker
At Noblesville Visitors Center
839 Conner St., Noblesville, IN 46060
Walt has always been a good artist but getting married, starting a family, and
being the owner and operator of a bakery/snack route, pushed the artist within to
the back burner. Oil painting was just one of many hobbies, but at age 36
something clicked. Walt was settling down and developing patience. It was then
that he picked up his brushes and began to paint, and has never stopped. Skill
level improved, artwork progressed, and 25 years later, Walt is still at it.
Walt is a self taught oil-painter who developed his own primitive style and paints
by his own vision. His subject matter is usually ordinary mid-western scenes, with
enough action going on that the painting hints of a story. Most scenes are of real
places but sometimes the scenes are from his imagination. His paintings are
always upbeat, cheerful, and engaging to look at. As Walt would say, Good
karma creates good artwork!
Walt is a juried member of the Hamilton County Artists Association and a
member artist of Nickel Plate Arts. He currently resides in Carmel, IN.
