Mi Casa es Su Casa new paintings by Fernando Amaro, Jr. May 2019

“Mi casa es su casa” by gallery resident artist Fernando “Force 129” Amaro, Jr. In a time when we are being priced out of our own community, instead of spreading hate I prefer to spread creativity and welcome change and grow in many different ways from my everyday life and ever changing environment. This new series of work entitled “Mi casa es su casa” translates to “my house is your house,” and in it I explore abstract creations on new & found objects. Artist reception: first Friday May 3rd 7pm–11pm Exhibition dates: May 3–25 2019 KALEID Gallery 88 S. 4th St. downtown San Jose Gallery hours: Tuesday–Saturday 12pm–7pm Free admission.…

Hermits and Revelers new work by Bryson Bost May 2019

“Hermits and Revelers” new work by gallery resident artist Bryson Bost Brightness, triumphs, celebrations, and the like, may be gathered in the quiets and among the crowds. A carmine red, for example, may feel loud on some days, and on others serene. This can be said of all the colors about the wheel. It is desired to share the many faces of shades and tints, and for one to speculate the decimal level of said color, as it speaks to each individual it crosses. Robust or timid, and in unison across the pieces exhibited, how high up, or how low is the volume of the combinations presented before you? Is it peaceful, is it frenetic? Reflect and enjoy! Artist reception: first Friday May 3rd 7pm–11pm Exhibition dates: May 3–25, 2019 KALEID Gallery 88 S. 4th St. downtown San Jose Gallery hours: Tuesday–Saturday 12pm–7pm. Free admission. info@KALEIDGallery.com  …

Things Unsaid new work by Matthew Heimgartner _ Feature Exhibit March 2019

KALEID Gallery presents new works by resident artist Matty Heimgartner in our main gallery for the month of March, 2019. “Things Unsaid” by Matty Heimgartner

“Things Unsaid” is a visual narrative about the anxieties that we suppress by overconsumption of alcohol and drugs. It is a nostalgic tribute to the life that I lived, with watercolor and ink illustrations capturing feelings that I had and scenarios that I saw. Each painting is its own story, but together, they represent a lifestyle. Things Unsaid is a combination of biographical and autobiographical scenarios and situations, with hand-written text inside the paintings to speak the words that my anxious mind could not.

I started taking party drugs at eighteen years old and became dependent on alcohol at nineteen. Anytime that I had to deal with something even remotely stressful, I would drink until I no longer cared, or more so, remembered. Getting kicked…
