“A Happier Place” by Julie Bovee Feature Exhibit April 2022

KALEID Gallery is proud to present: “A Happier Place” new works by resident artist Julie Bovee. Opening reception: First Friday, April 1st 5pm–9pm.Part of the South First Fridays ArtWalk SJ. As a youth, I loved the song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” by Bobby McFerrin. I played that music video again while writing this synopsis, and it’s impossible to watch that video, with Robin Williams dancing around being a complete dork, and not smile and forget all about my worries. When I sit in my art studio surrounded by all of my colorful flower fields, a similar feeling envelops me. 2021 was a difficult year for me, and for all of us.

The Swanmosaic Collection by Xuan My Ho Feature Exhibit April 2022

KALEID Gallery is proud to present: The Swanmosic Collection by resident artist Xuan My Ho. In this exhibition, Xuan includes her mosaic wall hangings and sculptures that represent the array of the styles she has developed over the past 22 years. The inspiration for her creations comes from what she sees in her daily life and while traveling. Her love of animals, the beauty of both nature and cityscapes, as well as drawings of womens’ figures are translated, sometimes in the abstract, in her works. She tries to invoke a story behind the subjects in her mosaics. Xuan uses traditional mosaic materials of glass, ceramic, and tile, but also collects and adds many unique materials to give her pieces a 3-D look, making her work different from other mosaic styles. Opening reception: First Friday, April 1st 5pm–9pm.Part of the South First Fridays ArtWalk SJ. Exhibition dates: April 1–29, 2022 Gallery…

“Writer’s Breakthrough” by Jean-Luc Pedanou Feature Exhibit March 2022

KALEID Gallery is proud to present: “Writer’s Breakthrough” by Jean-Luc Pedanou I first started painting exclusively for myself in an effort to work through writer’s block while working on a graphic novel. I had read somewhere that engaging in a different artistic endeavor could spur on creativity for writers. Unfortunately that idea failed but only from a literary standpoint but succeeded for me artistically by compelling me to pursue expression through painting and eventually mixed media. I had always wanted to paint and finally gave myself license to try unconditionally. Once I started sharing my work, I was compelled by the diverse reactions I was receiving. I now understand that I love evoking emotion, feeling and imagination from viewers. From the start my feelings were expressed in cascades of colors, light and movement. Eventually however, I felt a need to add more dimension and texture to my work. I love…
