Art Venues: Where We See Art with Shannon Cannings

What is the difference between a gallery, an art center, and a museum? What are the objectives of each? How are they funded?  Where can you buy art and who gets the money?
With the backdrop of the “Lubbock Collects” exhibit in the HDJ Studio Gallery, Shannon will explain the different places that exhibit art.

Shannon Cannings received her BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA and her MFA from Syracuse University in Syracuse, NY, both degrees in Painting. Shannon has been an instructor at Texas Tech University for 19 years.  She is currently represented by Anya Tish Gallery in Houston, Cris Worley Fine Arts in Dallas, and at Charles Adams Gallery in Lubbock. Shannon has been a Hunting Prize finalist 4 times, her work was included in New American Painting, the Texas Biennial, several art fairs and museum exhibitions, and many solo and group shows in 12 states. 

 Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

This event is free to the public.
Join us for coffee and donuts!
