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.
Experience the art of collage in our spacious garage studio. Flex your artistic muscles and create your own collage button! There will be musical guests performing Friday and Saturday.
This year’s featured artist is Jeff Nichols, aka Ghostbridge. His collage work investigates multiple viewpoints and narratives that coexist with their difficulties and contradictions.

Paintings and Portraits
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)
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
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 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.

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.

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.
