TWO BUCK Tuesdays at KALEID Gallery

Tuesday, November 15th, 7-10pm
It's free and open to all ages!

Here are just some of the interesting artists and crafters you will meet!

Far out music by Tim Thompson!
Space Palette is a musical and graphical instrument created by Tim Thompson that makes use of the Microsoft Kinect, a 3D camera. Standing in front of a wood frame, you wave your hands and "paint" both music and projected visuals. Any number of hands can be used simultaneously, so you and your friends can use it together and become an instant band and light show!

Calligrapher Cari Ferraro will demonstrate these scribal secrets, working with inks and color on paper, from medieval styles to contemporary experimental lettering. She will have on hand a variety of tools to form different styles of lettering. A free sample of calligraphy (one or two words) for all who attend. Extra samples can be done, time permitting, for $2 each. Come and witness the archaic art of beautiful writing.

A Box Is A Box Is A Box by Gianfranco Paolozzi
In search of new surfaces to apply my marks, to write my journals, the everyday boxes used as packaging for products that we consume, are becoming my canvasses. the box is a canvas when it is disassembled or not.

Photographs from Italy and Greece by John Eric Paulson
Each day I wonder what photographic surprises await me. When I focus on an area, I look for what I would like to see if it were a perfect world, creating the ideal, capturing the basic beauty and enhancing its drama.
