TWO BUCK TUESDAY, June 15th 2010 6:30-9pm

$2 Art Sale and Quirky Speaker Series

This month at Two Buck Tuesday- a range of people who spend more time than you do with animals. In that sentence I’m counting “found objects” as an animal. ~this month’s curator Kate Stewart

David Mejia was born and raised in San Jose, California and he loves to draw and make comic books. He works at the Martin Luther King Library and occasionally has the job of the library’s mascot Conroy the Curious Cougar. David has created most of the art work for the library featuring Conroy (he also proposed to his wife in the Cougar suit.) You can see David’s art work on view at KALEID Gallery.

Stephanie Bailey is a stiltwalker, ballet dancer, puppeteer and flautist. She travels the world as a museum photographer. Last summer, she spent two months at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington DC photographing their insects and prehistoric vegetation (she was also allowed to touch dinosaur bones!) Stephanie will demonstrate the process she uses to photograph tiny things, and show off the bugs the Smithsonian let her keep.

Zack Belanger is a sculptor in wood, glass, metal and found objects recently transplanted from Oakland to San Jose. His recent passion is making jewelry out of found objects. Watch his majesty.

Sandy Sanjurjo talks about Seaskin, her upcoming KALEID feature exhibit benefiting the world’s oceans.

Live drawing featuring Ashley Laidlaw and Justin Devine, Keith Bunnell throwing ceramics, and Arturo Rangel on the mic!

TWO BUCK Tuesdays is an all day $2 art sale and evening quirky speaker series that happens on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
