Shamanism: Images of a Mythic Journey by David Mejia

Shamanism: Images of a Mythic Journey new work by David Mejia “I have always been intrigued by the path of the Shaman who lives between the worlds of the known and unknown. The power of myth and magic throughout the ages and into this modern world.” David Mejia is a local San Jose artist who has appeared at art events through out the Bay Area and Northern California drawing quick portraits of patrons at both public and private events for the past 6 years. Drawing since the age of 6, Mejia’s styles vary between realistic, abstract, and cartoon. He works with mixed media, including pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and ink. “I like to live IN my art.

Skunk-Truck & Lucy by Donny Foley

Skunk-Truck & Lucy new works by Donny Foley This March KALEID Gallery presents: Skunk-Truck & Lucy. This whimsical show features Donny Foley’s latest series of large scale Word Paintings. Each painting depicts a single story, but together they create one giant story; the tale of Skunk-Truck & Lucy. Word Paintings seamlessly combines two of Foley’s favorite forms of creative narrative: story telling and painting. The creation of each piece starts with a painted focal point. Then, the background is formed by hand lettering a story of which the entire painting is based upon. When viewed from a distance a Word Painting is meant to convey a cheery anecdote, but on closer inspection the viewer can see the complex nature of a seemingly simplistic image. Artist Reception: March 3rd, 7pm–11pm part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk in downtown San Jose. Free & open to the public. Exhibition dates: March…

Iridescent by Andrew Irvine

Iridescent by Andrew Irvine

“Iridescent” new works by Andrew Irvine Andrew Irvine is a ceramic artist and chemist who is inspired by the science behind ceramic materials and processing. In “Iridescent” he showcases his new experimental work with silver and bismuth lustre glazes using a raku fuming process. The refractive and reflective quality of lustre glaze colors result from a nano-layer of metallic crystals formed in the glaze surface during the fuming process, resulting in vibrant, elusive, otherworldly colors that burst to life when viewed in different light sources. These “glaze paintings” are truly emblematic of the modern evolution of ceramic art crossing over into the world of chemistry and material science. Artist reception: First Friday Sept. 2nd, 7pm–11pm Part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk/ free & open to the public. Exhibition on view through September 30, 2016. 88 South Fourth Street (@ San Fernando) San Jose, CA 95112 info@KALEIDGallery.com 408-947-1785Gallery Hours:…

Orbiter by Nicole Linde

Orbiter by Nicole Linde

“Orbiter” new paintings by Nicole Linde Abstract paintings are a form of meditation for me; they are a way for me to let my energy flow during their creation. They help me to process and transform the chaotic randomness of constant information input into a tranquil abstract world on canvas. I strive to create a language of colors, shapes, symbols, and lines forming movement and rhythms. “Orbiter” is a series of paintings exploring the relationship of my loud outer-self orbiting my quieter inner-self. Nicole Linde has been creating in one form or another since she can remember. She loves to paint and has a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design. She lives in the South Bay with her husband, two children, and cat.   Artist reception: First Friday Sept. 2nd, 7pm–11pm Part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk/ free & open to the public. Exhibition on view…
