Shannon Crider is a Houston-based visual artist and recent participant in the 2017-2018 Artist Studio Program at Lawndale Art Center. Crider's work investigates the impact of contemporary representations of women in our televisual culture. Her two- and three-dimensional works employ collage, sewing, and print to construct new spaces that reflect the psychogenic space of female subjectivity in popular culture. Crider earned an MFA in Printmedia from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2016) and her Bachelor's from Oklahoma City University (2008). In addition to her art practice, Crider serves as the Director of Education and Community Engagement at the Society for the Performing Arts in Houston.
