Bleeding Hearts Studio
In normal times, 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.
We are opting to stay virtual this year, as we present Shadows & Light; a Reflection.
For as many hardships we have endured throughout this pandemic, there have been bright points, and our longing for connection has never been stronger. As we reflect on our experiences, it’s a sobering reminder that we are all in this together, and our collective actions make a difference!
Bleeding Hearts Studio is a collaboration of family and friends: visual artists, musicians, and writers. Explore our virtual rodeo! There is something for everyone here! We will be offering delivery or curbside pickup of orders at the close of Art-A-Whirl weekend.
Bleeding Hearts Studio takes online orders for pickup through this website.
Bleeding Hearts Studio takes commissions.
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.
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
Charles Conley is the host of The Corona Lectures and Operator of the various Machines. As a writer, he has received fellowships from the Fine Arts Work Center and the Sozopol Fiction Seminars.

On Friday, May 14, 6pm Central Time, join us for a YouTube premiere of a special edition of The Corona Lectures “What Work We Have Done in Our Solitude” The Operator will be available to chat during and after the presentation.
It reflects over the period of isolation the Operator experienced during COVID-19 between the initial shelter-in-place of March 2020 and his second vaccination in May, 2021, including a glance at some of the major world events that happened during that time.

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.

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