(American) Born in Michigan, Jeremie D. Riggleman is an artist and art educator based in Indiana. Largely, his life has been spent in the Midwest United States, although much of his visual aesthetic was shaped while living in the Los Angeles area. He began exploring ideas related to race, class and privilege in his work when he relocated to Indiana from Southern California in 2017 and observed dramatic social contrast between these places.
Riggleman holds a BA in studio art from Bethel University (Mishawaka, IN) and a MFA in visual art from Azusa Pacific University (Azusa, CA).
He has participated in solo and group exhibitions at the Museum of Art and History (Lancaster, CA), Coagula Curatorial (Los Angeles, CA), il Palazzo della Provincia di Frosinone (Frosinone, Italy), Oceanside Museum of Art (CA), Riverside Art Museum (CA), Westmont College (Santa Barbara, CA), Concordia University, Irvine (CA), and Gallery 825, (West Hollywood, CA, Los Angeles Art Association). His art has been collected by numerous public and private parties, including the late Carrie Fisher.
