“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.

“Melancholy” by Houyee Chow_March Feature Exhibit

KALEID Gallery is proud to present: “Melancholy” by resident artist Houyee Chow: a feature exhibition for the month of March, 2021. Opening with Artist in attendance:First Friday March 5th, 5pm–9pm. A year ago this show looked completely different in my head and then the pandemic hit. Life can change in an instant and the show I had been planning for 2 years fell short. I thought about giving up and canceling everyday, but I kept thinking about how important this was for me. I decided to completely change direction and picked up my sketchbook to start anew. I found myself in a state of sadness and mourning from the loss of loved ones due to COVID related issues. I realized that I needed a space to feel sad in order to heal and I wanted to create this space for myself and everyone else. My show is titled “Melancholy” from…
