Jerry Ross Barrish

Jerry Ross Barrish, a fourth-generation San Franciscan, pursued studies in sculpture and film at the San Francisco Art Institute from 1970 to 1976. Upon earning his BFA and MFA, Barrish went on to produce three full-length narrative films. In 1988, he shifted his focus back to sculpture, specializing in creating figurative assemblages using plastic found materials, a passion he continues to pursue and create. Select notable works have been reborn into bronze sculptures. He is represented in many permanent collections including The Oakland Museum of California, Berkeley Art Museum, Crocker Museum and San Jose Art Museum.
