Art on the Ridge: 8005 Greenwood Ave N
Featuring the artwork of Matthew Scott: “It’s only a matter of time”…. Never before has this saying held more importance for our species and our planet alike. We live in an age of uncertainty, expectation, and bold exploration. As the clock winds down on the year 2012, we look with wonder for answers to questions that seemed unimaginable in times past. What will happen when the Mayan long count calendar runs out on December the 21st? Where is the human race headed in this age of fearsome technology and looming environmental disaster? What is the next step in our evolution? Will we face disaster in the coming years, or will peace and prosperity guide us along our path to the future? All of these questions can only be answered by waiting, watching, and allowing time to take its course.

This collection of work is my attempt at capturing the spirit of our age, and the special place it occupies in our shared history. I wanted to capture not only the expectation of disaster, but also the feeling that we are moving toward something truly amazing: the next chapter in our evolution. These pieces move along a continuum that encompasses terror, beauty, and all that lies between. It is my hope that you will take away something from this show that illuminates the unknown, and inspires new questions about the world we all share.

Also showing work from: Amanda Phipps, Jeffery Blucher, Garet Wolfe, Jennifer Cutshall, Joya Marie Marsh, Noelle Congdon, Steven Jendro, Priscilla Neilson, Susan Brown, Andy Hoyos, Jefferery Somosdosky, Matthew Hulse, Nicole Stremlow Monahan.  Artists present.

Original artwork starting at $40 and up. Buy any original artwork and get a Bherd Gallery Anniversary Art Book (value $25) now through Dec 21!

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.
