Bio

Jeff Herrity is a ceramic artist and native Washingtonian. Jeff makes surrealist figurines that are created from vintage plaster molds of angels and other objects that he finds. His work is based on the memories of ceramic figures his mother made when he was younger. His surrealist figurines or ‘dolls’ have become popular collectible items. The series of dolls were first shown at the Hillyer Art Space in 2014, then the Fridge Gallery in 2015, and now at the Hirshhorn Gift Shop – they were sold to support the Marvelous Objects: Surrealist Sculpture from Paris to NY show which ran from late last year to early 2016.
 
Jeff’s work can be seen in galleries around the country and he has shown his work internationally. Recently, Jeff received the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Artist Fellowship Grant for 2016, and his work has been purchased for ARTBANK – a program that puts art in government buildings.
 

Jeff graduated with his BFA from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2012, and his Masters in Teaching in 2013. He is a member of Red Dirt Studio in Mt. Rainier, Md, part of the Gateway Arts District. 

Now enrolled at George Mason University in the Master of Arts in Arts Management program, Jeff plans to have a gallery and not-for-profit organization that supports artists, mostly early career, as well as connects artists from different areas to have a visual dialog. Artist communities tend to speak only to themselves, and by reaching out to different communities, we can start a larger dialog through our work.

  1. I run a creative outlet called Ethos Decorum and later this fall I am launching a web series that highlights product.process and people. I would like to interview you sometime.. Would you be interested? I would like to talk about how you started, your creative process, where you get your inspiration and much more. The goal is to tell your story but also capture you working.
