Jenny Reed creates work that memorializes seemingly insignificant moments through whimsical representations of the domestic space. The integrity of this work depends on an acknowledgement of contradictory emotions-feelings of pointlessness versus the admiration of momentary satisfaction. She creates domestic still lifes to illuminate the extraordinary potential of the mundane. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, she received her BFA degree in 2014 from Northern Kentucky University. She then taught at community art centers in Louisville before completing a post-baccalaureate in ceramics at Indiana University Southeast. In 2016, Jenny was awarded a fellowship at Indiana University Bloomington. Her work has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout the US, including the 2018 National Council on the Education of Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Container Show. She is currently a second year graduate student at IU in the MFA Ceramics program.
