Sherry Lee Short




Sherry Lee Short is an artist, teacher, writer, and activist. She received her Master of Fine Arts with Distinction from the University of Georgia in 1988. Following, she taught art, education, and women’s studies at Minnesota State University Moorhead through the mid-1990s.



At that time, her interests in social justice turned her life towards a different career path. From 1994-1999, she served as the executive director of the Women’s Network of the Red River Valley (Moorhead, Minnesota). From 1999-2001, she served as the executive director of the Minnkota Health Project, a program that serves persons affected by HIV/AIDS in rural areas in half the state of Minnesota and seven counties in North Dakota.



In 2001, she was drawn back to the arts. From 2001-2012, she taught full time in the Department of Art & Design at Minnesota State University. Currently, she continues to teach drawing and art business courses in the Department of Art & Design and is also serving as the Director of Women’s and Gender Studies.



Although a figurative artist for most of her artistic career, Short’s most recent artistic focus has been landscape. This work also reflects her fondness for drawing media and works on paper
