Synesthesia feature exhibit by Jennifer Carrier

KALEID Gallery is proud to present:“Synesthesia” by resident artist Jennifer Carrier. Opens first Friday September 4th, 5pm–9pm with artist in attendance. Synesthesia is a phenomenon in which information meant to stimulate one of your senses stimulates several of your senses, as when hearing a certain sound induces the visualization of a certain color. Much like the experience of synesthesia, these works display disparate environments occurring as one. Though there is no single element that each painting shares, they are all distinctly of the same universe. These are dreamscapes where real life elements occur in fantastical arrangements that are both surreal and coherent. This is a universe where pitcher plants tower above the clouds, where 50’s inspired pin-ups with psychedelic skin-tones lounge on distant planets, and where the vastness of sea merges with that of outer space. Jennifer Carrier is a visual artist from the San Francisco Bay Area. Jennifer has…

“The Lexicon of Time” feature exhibit by Jojo Perea

KALEID Gallery is proud to present: “The Lexicon of Time” by resident artist Jojo Perea Opens first Friday September 4th, 5pm–9pm with artist in attendance. A visual depiction of a crystallized thought. Our true nature and form are fractals. The old and new both come in cycles. Birth and rebirth are the ultimate projection, abstract by nature but mathematical by design. The titles change but the archetypes remain the same. Historically we are the collections of our ancestors wisdom. In our DNA, written symbols etched in stone, paper, and spoken history. Art. It’s all a repeating pattern, archaic emotions of Fear and Love. Choose the energy and the path that serves you. Look to your environment for inspiration. Your past and future are malleable based on your creation of your Now. KALEID is open for viewing this exhibit (and 60 other resident artists on view) Fridays & Saturdays from September…

“Gateway by Glyph” by Laurus Myth Feature Exhibtion

KALEID Gallery is proud to present:Gateway by Glyph: a reprise of inner realmsnew work by resident artist Laurus MythAs architectural forms create a means of passage, an arch or entryway marked with glyphs deciphers what lies ahead. The challenges of introspection are alike my relationship with doors and windows. To see-through, to pass by, or to enter is a continuous practice of choice and at times, chance. My language is influenced by nature, technology, and intuition. I use this practice to decode my experience.Visible through diaphanous layers, circles intersect and repeat into a shape I refer to as the seed. Symbols and rituals are a part of human heritage. Like stories passed on, visual language is an extension of memory, an abstraction of experience, and a tool for communication.These paintings and sculptures are the result of my journey back into creation. Each piece is close to me in a way…

“Cul-de-Sac” by Jonathan Crow Feature Exhibition

Golden State Drive by Jonathan Crow, Oil on canvas, 40″ x 30″, 2020. KALEID Gallery is proud to present a new series of paintings by resident artist Jonathan Crow.I use a muted palette to create oil paintings that recall the vibrancy and optimism of America during the Cold War, reframed to reflect the anxiety and uncertainty of this current era. I draw inspiration from vintage snapshots culled from the 1950s through to the 1980s and use them in a way that creates compositional tension between positive and negative space.I’m drawn to images that seem to be small parts of a larger narrative; images that raise more questions than they resolve. My paintings are fragments of mid-20th century suburban life where disaster seems to lurk just beyond the frame.About the Artist:Jonathan Crow creates images that combine symbols of American mid-century nostalgia, in particular the suburb, with today’s mood of anxiety and…
