“Occasional Optimist” by Katie Gutierrez _ May Feature Exhibit

KALEID Gallery is proud to present the feature exhibition: Occasional Optimist by resident artist Katie Gutierrez For years, I have kept a “Year of Fun” list. A chronicle of all the positive things that had transpired during the year, as well as planned escapades that I was looking forward to. The list took a turn in early 2020.This is a collection of new work inspired by some of the things I have worried, daydreamt, laughed and cried about, been comforted by and endured during the pandemic, from the silly to the downright traumatizing.

What’s the same that may have only been hinted at in the original art? Each one honors the way life continues, in often subtle ways, all around us. About the Artist:Julie Meridian captures the essence of people and places through representational art that reveals impressionist details.

“Pretty Things on the Upswing” by Jemal Diamond_April Feature Exhibit

KALEID Gallery is proud to present: “Pretty Things on the Upswing” new work by resident artist Jemal Diamond. Opening reception: First Friday April 2, 2021, 5–9pm. “Pretty Things on the Upswing” is a collection of new one-of-a-kind paintings on paper in acrylic marker. With light at the end of a dark tunnel, pretty things grow from the ashes of the past. This new work is improvisational, with no intended outcome – only hopeful surprises. Within that spontaneous framework, there are intentional embedded dichotomies of line and shape to create a playground of visual cues and possible meanings. All titles for this collection are given by viewers like you, including “Pretty Things on the Upswing” title by artist Jenna Huisken. #TitleMe! @thejemalshow About the Artist:Jemal Diamond is a resident artist at KALEID Gallery, and has a studio at Visual Philosophy Studios in San Jose, California. He is a graduate of The…
