Art Up PhinneyWood Art Walk: Fri, November 9 from 6-9pm

A1 Piano: 7020 Greenwood Ave N
Featuring artist, Elise Richman. My paintings explore the relationships between engaging in an artistic process, evoking a sense of place, and expressing time’s passage. I pool, stack, scrape, scrub, pour, stain, drip, collage, and fuse oil, acrylic, and encaustic paint, engaging in processes that reflect forces of nature and capture a state of flux. Color is an important part of my works’ expressive content. It is applied as a palpable, optical element, as a substance that can be felt as well as seen.

My process-oriented art is conceptually driven. Each layered piece exhibits the history of its making, which acts as a layered metaphor for time’s passage. Landscapes embody geological time just as psychological topographies bear the imprint of time passed through the course of generations. Artist present.

“A Moment To Remember And Give Thanks” Visual art by Nicole Stremlow Monahan, Priscilla Neilson, Jeff Somudesky, Garet Wolfe, Amanda Phipps, and Jennifer Cutshall. Artists present.

Bherd Studios Gallery NEW LOCATION!!
312 N 85th Street, Suite 101 (above Chase Bank)
Bherd Studios Gallery is pleased to introduce art that bites back: works exploring the dualism of humanity and nature. In Picture Perfect seven artists present paintings, prints and mixed media artwork that prompts us to consider how we interact with the wild and wooly, and how those interactions in turn change and shape us. How do we see the natural world: as fearsome and dark, welcoming and fuzzy, a place where we have a niche or an alien kingdom quite separate from ours?

Whether cuddly or cruel, the natural world and its animal denizens are omnipresent in the works of Picture Perfect. Some are a mix of savage and sweet, from the furry Little Monster Dolls by Savannah Horrocks—expertly combining cute and creepy—to the skeletal deer, serpents, insects and birds that appear in Lea Barozzi’s twilit Gothic paintings. Somewhere between “aw!” and “aaah!”, Mary Louise Silva’s series of close-up animal portraits presents both fuzzy flesh and bared bone, revealing the hard truth of the skeleton beneath the friendly exterior. And innocence gets skewered by reality when RAWKSON is around: his big-eyed, mute-mouthed stuffed animals are subjected to all manner of cruelties that subvert expectations and bring a dark laugh to your lips. Participating artists include: Lea Barozzi, Savannah Horrocks, Jeff Leake, MJ Lindo, Mary Louise Silva, RAWKSON, and Joe Vollan and will be on exhibition through December 21. Artists present.
