Memories on Journals by Gianfranco Paolozzi

KALEID Gallery presents Memories on Journals a new feature exhibition for the month of May by Gianfranco Paolozzi. Memories on Journals by Gianfranco Paolozzi These pieces are considered “journals” because they are never finished until they are sold. In this way, Paolozzi’s work is ever-evolving… until it is yours; once you have it, it is completely evolved…or…back in the studio they go where they continue to be added to or edited. The works also have no “correct” top, bottom or sides when it comes to hanging the work. Paolozzi designed the frame with hardware so the collector can hang a piece in any orientation they’d like. Use your imagination. Artist Reception: May 6th, 7pm–11pm part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk in downtown San Jose. Free & open to the public. Exhibition dates: May 6 – May 27, 2016 88 South Fourth Street (@ San Fernando) San Jose, CA 95112 info@KALEIDGallery.com 408-947-1785Gallery Hours: Tuesday…

KALEID Gallery presents Lifetime Memories a new feature exhibition for the month of May by Luis Jorge Mieses. Lifetime Memories by Luis Jorge Mieses a collection of Lifecasting Sculptures portraying diverse human beings at different ages through life. Luis Jorge Mieses was born in Peru where he grew up, graduated and worked as an Industrial Engineer for 21 years. Since his move to California in 2001, Mieses has devoted his time to sculpture and taxidermy. Because of the taxidermy work–which required molds preparation, shaping and molding parts for mounting different animals–he discovered the fascinating world of sculpture. Since then, he has devoted his time to make life-size sculptures capturing hands, faces, feet, and various parts of the human body. Many of his works are now in private collections.
