ARMOgedon, Michael Foley Feature Exhibits for May 2009

KALEID Gallery presents two new feature exhibitions for the month of May. Alta Modern Graffiti by ARMOgedon 2057 – Residing in California Armo’s work is a collaboration of typographic elements and exploration with graffiti structure and form.

Now You’ve Really Made a Mess by Michael Foley – This Exhibit is one of pure chance. How people can truly make a difference, for better or worse and how sometimes, just sometimes, it’s full of irony.
