KALEID Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition of mixed media artist Shannon Amidon for the month of April 2012.

new work by Shannon Amidon

I’m a collector of the odd and beautiful, the repulsive, rare and mysterious; objects that occupy the space between familiar and bizarre. Inspired by the seventeenth century age of exploration and cabinets of curiosity, this series comes from place of discovery and wonder where insects, specimens and other objects come together and tell a story.
By interlacing art, science, and culture I explore the connection between man-made and natural objects; evoking a strong sense of nostalgia for the classic age of exploration and discovery.

Artists’ Reception: Friday, April 6th, 7–11pm
