Thank you for 15 years of support

November 14th, 2017

Going into my 15th year as a full time artist, I would like to say thanks to all the collectors, galleries, organizers, students, friends and supporters who have made this possible. In this time I have continually grown as an artist. Practicing my art full time has given me the opportunity to travel, exhibit, and teach workshops all over the world.

Three years ago I opened my public studio and gallery -True Measure. This is where you can find me working, as well as hosting monthly exhibitions of other artists work, taking no commission from these artists has given me the chance to give back. I invite the public to my studio where they can see my latest works and ask me questions directly about my motivations, ideas, and inspirations.

This past year I slowed down and took the time to really reflect on all of this, focusing on personal projects and exploration. Its been a lot of work and a lot of fun, thanks so much for being involved and supporting what I do! Cant wait to see what happens next.

There is a lot coming up and things are about to get busy again – Mexico Workshop, Mural reveal, Exhibition at Communion, Skype critiques, and a ton more.

You can check out the links in my monthly newsletter to find out more…

Hey everyone! Just wanted to give a heads up that two of my east coast artist friends will be making my studio their weekend home, April 2018.

A mixed media, recycle/upcycle, sculptural class; Altered Avians will be about creating a dimensional bird sculpture utilizing a variety of techniques. All skill levels welcome. The best part?

New Music Released

August 18th, 2017

I have a new album available on my bandcamp page for my Ugly Bootleg project.

Check out Heroes and Icons here…

https://jessereno.bandcamp.com/album/heroes-and-icons

heroes and icons is a collage of sound made up of childrens records, hip hop beats, field recordings of street music and captured sounds forced together with a live performance sampler, a record player and cdj. creating a time and place made up of many different and distinct eras that create mental images of a time gone by but still ever present in our media driven society. crackling records, black and white television commercials, lost cassette recordings from family vacations, and other lost memories.
