Bherd Studios Gallery (Greenwood Collective)
8537 Greenwood Ave N, Suite 1
Bherd Studios Gallery presents the urban contemporary work of Seattle artists: Michelle Anderst, Joe Vollan and Chris Sheridan. Each artists work is themed around the inner workings of the mechanical, human anatomy and the soul.
Anderst explores the relationships between organic structure such as bones, veins & nerves to man-made structures such as circuitry and computer boards. She’s known for pairing “the insides” with old fashioned vintage wallpaper which creates an unusual feminine elegance to her compositions.
Vollan uses his signature style of surreal and macabre scenes that are inhabited by skeletal animals and robots to evoke a sense of wonderment, relevant to the fantastic and bizarre worlds he creates.
Sheridan’s work explores the essence of humanity and the soul. His work depicts scenes from myths and folklore that teach about morality, as well as delving into the insights of human nature. His strong illustrative background provides beautifully crafted imagery on oil and canvas. Artists present.

Gainsbourg: 8550 Greenwood Ave N
Featuring Portland Photographer, Lloyd Kimeldorf. Drawn to the Surrealist movement at an early age, Kimeldorf developed a visual curiosity which still influences his way of seeing. While taking classes in film making, he became intrigued with his current medium, still photography. He creates and captures singular frames, each describing a fully formed moment within a story ... explicit, but leaving the rest up to the viewer to decide. His body of work consists of three collections: portraits, nudes, and concept pieces. Sometimes surreal, or comical, and often dramatic, Lloyd's work is inspired by a cast of ground-breaking photographers, such as Man Ray and Helmut Newton.
