Call for Artists_Vanitas Exhibition at KALEID

"Tromp-l'oeil Vanitas Still Life" by Franciscus Gysbrechts, 1650s

VANITAS at KALEID Gallery, opens First Friday June 7, 2013, part of San Jose's South FIRST FRIDAY Art Walk.

Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas. ~ Vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

A Vanitas is a work of art based on the idea of the transience of human existence and the knowledge that all has it's end. They have been common throughout the history of art, sometimes incredibly morbid with a sharp focus on death, others with obscured meaning hidden beneath a veneer of beauty. We'd like to invite you to create a Vanitas and interpret this classical theme in your own unique / visionary way.

The VANITAS exhibit will be our June thru mid July exhibition. In addition to KALEID artists, we are reaching out to other artists in the South Bay area in an effort to share our space and community with other talented artists.
