Michael Denning Exhibit at SLG Art Boutiki

Michael Denning is a San Jose artist who has curated and shown work extensively for the past ten years in Half Moon Bay, San Jose and San Mateo. He is a co-director of Heart of Chaos Artisan Collective and co-owner of Zenning Clothing. His latest exhibit is an autobiographical show explaining his life experiences and how they were catalysts for his art and the healing process involved as well as highlights of his work in community outreach and activism.

“My goal as an artist is to provoke thought, inspire change and invoke in others the desire to create for themselves. My primary medium is collage, but I also do painting, meditative drawing, photography and design work for musicians. I’ve always been artistic, with an overwhelming need to create. I chose collage as my medium because it allows me to take society and reflect it back at itself. Having had a troubled youth with drugs, suicide, severe depression and abuse, Art has been my saving grace.”

There will also be live painting and live music.

Opening Reception: October 25, 2014 7-10pm
Exhibit runs through Nov. 25, 2014

"Healing The Planet, Healing Ourselves" at Studio Bongiormo

SVAC presents "Healing The Planet, Healing Ourselves" 

Opening Reception: Nov. 7th, 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Exhibition dates: November 7th through December 5th
Studio Bongiorno, 500 Lincoln St., Santa Clara, CA PH: 408 217-9346

The "Healing The Planet, Healing Ourselves" exhibit addresses the problem of human suffering as well as environmental issues that result from this suffering.  Our current ways of living need to change. Through action, education, and meditation, we can all be part of the solution.  Greed and loss of connection, due to grasping at self, has led to a new awareness.  It is crucial to have a balance of nature in order to continue feeding the world and us. First, we must heal ourselves of this grasping to become a strong voice for change.  As a part of this healing we must realize our true nature as compassionate beings, and remove the delusions that cause us to be unaware of this nature. It is the process of learning how to see clearly that we have this nature.
Nature needs no lessons on how to survive: we do.  Today, as we work towards healing our differences, and ourselves, more of us are becoming a positive catalyst for change. We are starting to move in the right direction!
As artists we have a responsibility to bring awareness of these issues to the public.  The arts have always been important to world history and we are proud to be part of this exhibit.

Lacuna _ Lacey Bryant solo exhibition in San Francisco

20 Years of Snow, oil on canvas, 72" x 47", 2014

KALEID Gallery's Lacey Bryant recently opened her solo exhibition Lacuna at the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. On view is an incredible body of work enveloping imagery that is as familiar as they are surreal, exploring gaps in memory and wondering how much is real, versus "made up" within our imaginations. Lacey's continued theme of home, objects that comfort us and fascinate us, and the triggers of awakening our past within us, are all there in compelling visual narrative and beautifully executed vignettes that make fuzzy remembrances a profound place to linger.

Exhibition dates: July 12–August 9, 2014
Modern Eden Gallery
403 Francisco Street (@ Powell Street)
San Francisco, CA

Regular Gallery Hours: 10a - 6p Tuesday - Saturday

Chris Reed & Tulio Flores at Montalvo Art Center 7/25

Final Friday Art Party with
Friday, July 25, 2014, 6 p.m.

Local Singer-Songwriter and Montalvo Teaching Artist Chris Reed is an inspirational folk artist with big-hearted and delightfully refreshing lyrics. His music carries a loveable pop tone, while his folk styled sing-a-long choruses compliment his friendly presence on stage mixing elements of reggae and blues.

For July’s Final Friday Art Party, Reed will premiere his new one of a kind music video and single “We are One,” a collaboration with hundreds of students across Silicon Valley. As a Montalvo Teaching Artist, he works with Montalvo’s Education Programs to teach science and math curriculum in local schools through the platform of music and art. From junior high to preschoolers with visual and orthopedic impairments, Chris has brought students together singing and performing, truly reflecting the beauty, diversity and strength we all share in the Silicon Valley and how the arts can unite us all.

Joining him will be Tulio Flores, a contemporary artist from San Jose. His mixed media work combines paint with recycled found objects such as candle wax, wood, metal objects, strings, natural plants and more. “Art can be used to celebrate the ups-and-downs of our lives,” say Flores. “My work tries to show us all that there is beauty in everything.”

Enjoy a perfect summer evening with music, art, live painting demonstrations, food, and refreshments!

John Cloud Solo Exhibition Opens at SLG/Art Boutiki 6/27

Heart of Chaos and SLG Art Boutiki are proud to present John Cloud's latest solo exhibition "Transitions."

John Cloud has been an accomplished, well respected artist for the last 18 years, honing his craft and the various facets of his style. He worked as a comic/graphic novelist and illustrator on several published titles, distributed both nationally and internationally. John has also been a mural artist for many years, painting murals for many local businesses and art lovers in the bay area.

He has a unique modern serialism style, a combination of Salvador Dali, and a pinch of Jackson Pollock. Mix in some comic illustrators, such as Jim Lee and Mark Silvestry, then throw in a little Tim Burton, a vibrant color pallet, and this is what you get.

The show will feature plenty of new works as well as some pieces from the past few years. There will also be live music and live painting by other local artists. Please come out and support local arts!!

Artist's Reception: Friday, June 27th, 8:00 pm
