Lanie Gannon studied painting at the Memphis College of Art, but what she really wanted to do was make objects out of wood. This led her to study woodworking at the Appalachian Center for Crafts. It was during this time that she began to practice the discipline of working with her hands. She has been working in the third dimension ever since. Lanie has received the National Endowment for the Arts, Visual Artist Fellowship Grant, theTennessee Arts Commission/Owens-Corning Visual Arts Fellowship and the Tennessee Arts Commission Individual Artist Fellowship. She has independently produced two books. Nom de Plume, a book of drawings, and Ruby, the story of her neighbor, published with funding from the Tennessee State Museum. Recently her work was included in the books, Scratching the Surface, Art and Content in Contemporary Wood, and The Penland Book of Woodworking. address:
