Richard Gerrish Biography

Richard Gerrish has been known for his whimsical and often satirical representations about life and culture in Los Angeles. Since graduating with an MFA from Claremont Graduate School in 1980, he has shown internationally and domestically in venues that include Japan, Finland, New York, Atlanta, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Gerrish served as an original Director and first Vice President of the Board of the Downtown Arts Development Association (DADA), a non­profit organization directed by artists for the improvement of the downtown community. In 1994 he was invited by the Community Redevelopment Agency of Los Angeles to head a design team for the development of a "gateway" for the South Park Redevelopment Project in downtown Los Angeles, and completed a Public Commission for the Teachers' Annuity Association in Culver City, California. He has had ten solo exhibitions of his artwork and been included in nearly 100 group and museum exhibitions. Working with cut and welded steel, Gerrish continues to produce intriguing sculpture at once whimsical and elegant in its posture.
