Artist Bio

A graduate of the California College of Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Textiles, Jeanine Alfieri creates work that combines fabric, leather, painting and eventually steel, as her own style developed. Using the female form, from a life cast, she combines these materials uniquely and without restriction.

In 2007 out of her studio in Chelsea, Alfieri opens the Fountainhead Gallery, an alternative exhibition space that promotes the need for artists to work together on the advancement of their careers. In 2012 Alfieri organizes “Collective Energy” a group that draws its strength from utilizing the skills of each individual artist toward one collective goal.

She has received multiple awards in sculpture and is a recent BRIO winner 2013. Alfieri moved her studio to the South Bronx in 2009 and the Fountainhead Gallery became a nomad project. She lives and works in the Bronx, New York.
