KALEID Featured Exhibitions for May 2010

KALEID Gallery presents two new featured exhibitions with opening receptions on First Friday May 7th from 7-9pm. These exhibitions by Shannon Amidon and Centa Schumacher are photography based although both artists approach the medium entirely differently for a unique experience when viewed.

art by Centa Schumacher

Preconscious a photographic exhibition by Centa Schumacher. This work explores what is just beneath our awareness using the body as an intermediary between the conscious mind and the subconscious. By turning the camera onto herself, Centa Schumacher shows that the separation between the physical self and the mind is nearly non-existent.

art by Shannon Amidon

Efflorescence is a series of lumen prints by Shannon Amidon inspired by her interest in blending artistic renderings of nature and old world photographic techniques. Camera-less images are created by exposing botanical specimens and photographic paper to varying levels of sunlight, time, and temperature, creating unique and ethereal images that transcend the specimens' natural color, shape, and form.

A companion ambient sound installation by Compartment organically interprets pieces of Shannon Amidon's Efflorescence series resulting in musical vignettes that are sometimes alarming, sometimes whimsical. Compartment will be present opening night performing a live musical installation.
