Experience 'Groundspace' at UCC gallery

Broken-detail-2-copy-2

The work of Los Angeles fiber artist Jennifer Reifsneider will be on display at the UCC art gallery through Dec. 6.

Groundspace, an exhibit of works by Jennifer Reifsneider, runs now through Friday, Dec. 6, in the Art Gallery at Umpqua Community College.

“Jennifer Reifsneider explores ideas about identity through manipulating utilitarian materials,” explained Susan Rochester, UCC’s gallery director. “Her work is grounded in fiber traditions, such as crochet and knitting, but in an unexpected scale. There is a tension in her work between the order of the techniques she uses and the potential chaos of it all going out of control.”

Reifsneider's works have been exhibited in more than 60 solo and group exhibitions across the country, including at the Torrance Art Museum and Pacific Design Center (Los Angeles), Cartin Gallery (West Hartford, Conn.), and Basilico Fine Arts (New York). She has received several commissions, grants and awards, including a statewide Investing in Artists grant from California's Center for Cultural Innovation in 2013.

Her work is in private and public collections, including the Yellowstone Art Museum and The Museum of Modern Art/Franklin Furnace Artist Book collections. In 2010, Reifsneider was the first artist-in-residence at Coastline Community College in Huntington Beach, Calif. Earlier this month, she participated in High Desert Test Sites as part of the artist collective, Constellation Lab.

Born in 1973 in Plainfield, N.J., Reifsneider was raised on a working farm in rural southeastern Pennsylvania. She earned her bachelor’s degree in photography from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1995 and master’s degree in fine arts from California State University, Long Beach in 2011. She maintains a studio at Keystone Art Space in northeast Los Angeles.
