BIO

Jerry Wellman's first job, besides delivering newspapers was working for Grover Bostwick as a roustabout in a carnival in Northern Wisconsin. His definition of the artist is expansive, consequently his work as a carnival barker, an Indian trader with his Cheyenne compadre, a minister, a ceramic tile designer, a videographer and a MFA graduate of CalArts all coalesce into his interest in visual and cross disciplinary art forms.
His paintings and drawings have been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Holly Solomon Gallery, Ronald Feldman Gallery, Pierogi Gallery, The Downey Museum, The Orange County Center of Contemporary Art, The El Paso Museum of Art, and The Revolving Museum. His drawings were selected for a traveling show sponsored by the Smithsonian. Curator Ralph Rugoff writing for The L.A. Weekly selected him to be a featured artist at the Los Angeles Art Expo. His video animation work has been presented at the Dallas International Video Festival, The Santa Fe International Film festival, The Kidseye festival in Newport RI and won 1st place at the Magnifico Exhibitions at the Albuquerque Museum. His interest in poetics is evident in all his work. Exploring, expanding and sharing that interest is central to his production as an artist.
Wellman is the co-founder, co-director and co-curator of Axle Contemporary Art Gallery. In late 2012 he delivered a TEDx talk “ Four Wheels, Two Axles, and a Truck full of Art", on expanding the definitions of art and its dissemination as a way to reveal community to itself.
Currently he lives in Santa Fe with his wife and daughter.
