Bernie Hall

Bernie Hall is a Seattle based multi-disciplinary artist, writer, actor, drummer, dancer and visual artist who likes to incorporate universal cultural elements in his art. Growing up in Buffalo, NY, art gave Bernie a sense of rhythm in his life and a way to reflect on the world around him. He believes that everything has rhythm; from wind to rain to the vibrations in a desk when it is hit or moved. As a visual artist, Bernie uses mixed media to tell stories from both past and present while acknowledging future possibilities. His art is grounded in the universal spiritual connections that transcend time and place. At 76 years old, Bernie has an ongoing thirst for learning and draws on his experiences as a veteran, retired social worker and lover of music. His record collection is 400 records and counting!
