Dedicated in 1981 to the memory of Clell and Ruth Gannon, the Gannon Gallery is a light filled space in BSC's new LEA Hall. Regional artists, student work and more rotates through this free public space throughout the year.
About the Gannons
Clell Gannon was a naturalist, landscape painter, poet, editor-printer and historian. He was known for paintings of North Dakota scenes, including watercolor cover illustrations for Oscar Will Seed catalogs. He also wrote and illustrated the book, "How Christmas Came to North Dakota." Ruth was a long-time BSC Spanish and English teacher and poet. Both supported the arts and lived in a self-designed art house called "The Cairn."
