About William Cannings:

William Cannings spent time in his youth working in automotive shops where he familiarized himself with the tools and equipment needed to support his current day art practice. Today, the artist has mastered an innovative process of working with three of the four classical elements of nature: steel, heat and air. Each finished sculpture appears buoyant despite its heavy material, creating a dichotomy of hard and soft, weightlessness and heft. 

He received a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University and an MFA from Syracuse University. He is Professor of Sculpture at Texas Tech University. In 2004, he helped to reinvigorate the Texas Sculpture Symposium, a brand of the Sculpture Network of Texas, where he continues today as an active member, and was one of four artists chosen for a solo exhibition at the 2009 Texas Biennial. 

William Cannings is represented by Cris Worley Fine Arts, Dallas
