Bleeding Hearts Studio is a delightful oasis in the heart of the arts district. It is a gallery and performance venue like no other, spilling into the great outdoors, with lounge space galore to rest your weary soles.

Les Tournesols (**Sunflowers**)

Sunflowers have long captured the hearts of many. The French name is Les Tournesols, meaning “turn to the sun.”

Each new day, the young blooms face east in the morning and follow the arc of the sun, facing west by dusk. This allows them to fully benefit from the sun’s energy. Many varieties are tolerant to heat, drought, and poor soil conditions. Their seeds are arranged on a golden spiral, maximizing the yield. They are an artistic marvel of nature.

This cheery, hardy flower with intricate spirals of seeds and heart-shaped leaves is also Ukraine’s national flower. It’s become a symbol of resistance, strength, and compassion world-wide.

Our studio is a collaboration of family and friends: visual artists, musicians, and writers. This year, in addition to our showcase, we will be holding a Corner for a Cause fundraiser for Ukraine. 100% of proceeds from our artists’ donated work will go to Doctors Without Borders. They are sending medical supplies to Ukraine, staffing clinics at border crossing points, and providing trauma training and mental health support. We can help!

Together we will “turn to the sun” with live music, art, and fun for all ages!

Peace!

Paintings and Portraits link to this group

A writer in real life with a BA in English from Augsburg, Cheri Johnson is interested in the intersections of nature and culture, and she likes to use recycled and natural materials whenever she can! Her artwork is the heart and soul of Bleeding Hearts Studio!

Jenée Nederloe, ringleader and creator of Bleeding Hearts Studio, has been an artist since she could hold a crayon. Her day job is working as a surgical tech (with bleeding hearts), and in her free time, she enjoys her family and gardens (with bleeding hearts). She likes making quirky gifts and does portraiture in a variety of mediums on commission.

Music by Julie Johnson (badass flutist) link to this group

Based in Minneapolis, flutist and composer Julie Johnson brings her distinct sound and approach– rougher and more soulful than a typical classical sound, yet more pure than a typical jazz player’s–to many multi-genre projects, including places where, she’s been told, the flute doesn’t belong. As a creator and a performer of new music, Julie’s work walks the line between composition and songwriting, art music and popular music, between genres as seemingly different as classical and blues. A finalist for the McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians and a winner of grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the American Composers Forum, the Lanesboro Arts Center, Springboard for the Arts, MacPhail Center for Music, MRAC, and a Banff Centre residency, she plays in many styles, working to bring both the flute and her audiences to music they haven’t been in contact with before. Most recently she released a live-performance video series, “Looping in My Living Room” available on https://julieflute.net/store

 

 

ANTHELION PROJECTS link to this group

Under certain rare atmospheric conditions, a luminous spot or halo will appear at a point on the horizon opposite to the sun.

This is an anthelion.

The Anthelion Projects are video responses to a variety of meaningful encounters, whether artistic, oneiric, textual, existential, or phenomenological.

The intent behind Anthelion Projects is collaboration- a shared endeavor in which writers, artists, and thinkers come together to share ideas, explore the boundaries of their discipline, and discover new ways to approach their work.

His work has been published in Bellevue Literary Review, North American Review, Southern Review, and Harvard Review.

His MFA in fiction is from the University of Minnesota, and he lives in NE Minneapolis.

Photography Prints link to this group

Shadows & Light; a Reflection Series

These photos expose my delight in how objects can bend, absorb, reflect, and focus the sun. Shadows invite mystery and imagination. Light dazzles with color or a razor of white. When the camera can show how I feel about the subject, it makes me happy.

Keychain/ Bottle Openers link to this group

Oh, Fer Fun! It’s a keychain that can open yer beer or pop! These are lovingly created by Jenée Nederloe

I would describe myself as an image farmer. I have a keen interest in all things vintage, science-y, travel-related, and absurd.

Magnet Sets link to this group

Gifty items by Jenée Nederloe

If you’re over a certain age, you know Dick & Jane. Early reading primers bring back such a sense of nostalgia!

Some other sets listed here are whimsical or otherwise visually striking.

Compact Mirrors link to this group

These sweet little makeup mirrors are created by Jenee Nederloe and are farmed from advertisements. They are fun for photo ops!

In a deeper sense, they represent our fascination with beauty standards (often unattainable). in doing this project I saw the racial disparity in mainstream advertising and made every effort to include images of people of color.
