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.

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…

Quantum Foundations by Andrew Irvine

Quantum Foundations by Andrew Irvine

“Quantum Foundations” by Andrew Irvine Andrew Irvine is a ceramic artist, chemist and professional science educator who is inspired by the intersection of science and art. In “Quantum Foundations”, he showcases his recent experiments with lustre glaze techniques on wall sculpture forms inspired by the mysteries of modern physics. Each piece represents a concept from the development of science in the last century, a journey that has led humanity to the fringes of reality, existence and space-time. The refractive and reflective qualities of lustre glaze colors compliment this inspiration and come from metallic nano-layer deposited on the glaze surface, resulting in vibrant, elusive, otherworldly colors that burst to life when viewed in different light sources. These glazes requires expensive and exotic materials including compounds of bismuth, silver, neodymium, holmium, erbium and actual gold metal. These “glaze paintings” are truly emblematic of the modern evolution of ceramic art crossing over into…

Lifecasting by Luis Jorge Mieses

Lifecasting by Luis Jorge Mieses a collection of Lifecasting Sculptures Luis Jorge Mieses was born in Peru, where he grew up, graduated, and worked as an Industrial Engineer. Mieses used to travel into the jungle frequently where he had the opportunity to preserve the animal bodies through taxidermy. Taxidermy became one of his main hobbies. It required preparation, shaping and molding parts for mounting different animals. Through taxidermy he discovered the fascinating world of sculpture. Since moving to California in 2001, Mieses has devoted his time to sculpture and taxidermy. Mieses conducted extensive research and studies on techniques for making molds and sculptures which led him to the human figure. Since then he has devoted his time to Lifecasting; capturing hands, faces, feet and various parts of the human body. Mieses is a distinguished professional in the preparation of life-size sculptures in the Bay Area. His works are owned by…

Équilibre Divine by Jonathan Perea

KALEID Gallery is proud to present: Équilibre Divine New drawings by Jonathan Perea “ I am compelled to create, to share with people another reality, opening an awareness of profound meaning without conventional boundaries. In my art exists the programming of a new metaphor that promotes healing, balance and equilibrium. The holographic, energetic, eternal patterns found in nature resonate with the source within each of us and frees the spirit to find its own path.The contrast of fear and love drive us towards growth as a conduit to nourish the mind and the heart and set the soul free. We are all on a journey of self discovery, but we have to learn to let go of old beliefs so the spirit can truly soar.”    ~ artist Jonathan Perea Artist Reception: Friday Aug. 3rd 7pm–11pm part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk in downtown San Jose Exhibition Dates: August…
