Jeanne Heifetz

About Jeanne Heifetz

Jeanne Heifetz came to visual art by a circuitous route. She has two degrees in English (Harvard A.B., NYU M.A.), spent a year as the writer-in-residence at Exeter, wrote a book on organic food (HarperCollins) and one on the origin of color names (Henry Holt). Heifetz also had a parallel career as a weaver, exhibiting at venues like the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show and the Smithsonian Craft Show. In 2007, she started applying fiber techniques to non-traditional materials like metal and glass; by 2011 her work had shifted entirely from fine craft to fine art. Since then, she’s shown in galleries and museums in 17 states, the U.K., France, Italy, Germany, Australia, and Israel. Her work is in the Drawing Center’s curated registry and the flat files of the Kentler International Drawing Space. She has curated shows at Schema Projects and the Workshop Gallery in Brooklyn and at the Philadelphia Museum of Jewish Art. A fellow at LABA – A Laboratory for Jewish Culture in 2018-19, Heifetz lives and works in Brooklyn.
