Not to be missed – Kathleen Dawe’s imaginative and fanciful collection of ceramic sculptures appeal to all.  Her sensibilities wander from tongue in cheek social commentary such as vignettes of slug families going about their daily life (at Costco, for instance) to lovely functional bud vases in shapes of women’s body forms. This collection of 3D functional art and art for art’s sake is sure to delight you. Artist present.

Bherd Studios Gallery
312 N 85th Street, Suite 101 (above Chase Bank)
Southern Gothic presents the work of five female artists from Portland, whose works reveal a phantasmagoric world caught between fairytale and nightmare. Lea Barozzi, Lesley Reppetaux, Kalina Torino, Heidi Elise Wirz and Kendra Binney paint lissome, sloe-eyed beauties who journey unafraid through places steeped in myth, symbolism and danger.

Fairytale imagery plays a key role in all of these fantastical visions. Lea Barozzi’s luminous gamines shine against a backdrop of twilit blue, their haunting eyes appearing to follow viewers from within the canvas. Painted in cool colors, Barozzi’s small vignettes contain mysterious iconography: sinuous striped tentacles, ghostly dark-eyed dogs, shy red fawns, and mounds of tiny skulls. Lesley Reppetaux’s acrylic on board paintings are scenes plucked from lost myths, rife with menacing creatures, spirit helpers, and not-so-innocent maidens who explore the wild in their skivvies. Rich jewel tones, a strong sense of humor and inspiration from world mythology mark the work of painter Kalina Torino. Whether they are pudgy mermaids, cutie-pie woodland nymphs, or tricksy sprites, Torino’s lively characters invite the viewer to enter a world bursting with mischief and play.
