« Max Thompson at Empire Seven July 12th | Main | NEW Art Classes & Workshops at KALEID Gallery! »



Friday, August 2nd 7–11pm / Free & all ages.

KALEID Gallery has two new solo exhibitions by resident artists Nadja Martens, and Joe Perea.


Minoule — The Art of Nadja Martens
Ever since I was a young I loved to listen to stories which I always found fascinating. Eventually I began to use these stories, and my own imagination, to escape to new places and interpret the world around me. My paintings are inspired by both the worlds I dreamed up and the one that surrounds me. I try to capture the instant in which I step back from reality and sink into the realm behind my own eyes.


Paradigm Shift – New works by Joe Perea

When Aristotelian logic is not enough and the linear thinking dissolves, quantum thinking rises out of the new and into the old.

Phantom Galleries presents Window Shopping, recent works by Fernando “FORCE129? Amaro Jr

Phantom Galleries transforms vacant storefronts into vibrant art exhibitions by regional artists. These temporary installations, which are viewable 24/7 from the sidewalk, add a jolt of visual stimulation to the passersby and gives wider exposure to independent artists. Fernando Amaro, Jr is a San Jose artist that exhibits widely on the west coast and keeps busy in between shows with his graphic design company.

Phantom Galleries presents Everyone Gets a Piece! by Bryson Bost at Pho69.

If people really are easier to acquire than objects, then we certainly live atop an intriguing planet. The hope is, that these images are, ‘accessibility,’ in it’s truest form.

Bryson Bost is a painter and draftsman. His work has been exhibited in Oakland, San Francisco, Burlingame, and now San Jose. His father enjoys telling anyone who’ll listen that, ‘his son’s work shares wall-space with Miro.’ It’s my pleasure!

Phantom Galleries presents Awakening Giant by Omar at Good Karma Vegan Café.

Omar is an Artist, he lives and works in the Bay Area. A former native of Mexico City, he migrated to the U.S. at the age of 9. His desire and passion for art started at a young age, sketching and drawing characters out of comic books. His art-work would be best described as a “beautiful mess of colors” deeply rooted from the? soul. ?
?Omar’s artistic aberration is still evolving rapidly, along with countless goals and aspirations, that he hopes to conquer as an artist. Omar’s goal is soon to expand his network of artistic consciousness throughout the U.S. and eventually focus all his time and energy to his arts as a full time artist.
