The Peculiar Pageant new paintings and installation by Lacey Bryant
Theatrically posed and surrounded by lush, illusory environments, the subjects of Lacey’s newest works are like pictures in a storybook written in an unknown language. The images are somewhat familiar but certain elements remains foreign. Like a hazy dream of an imagined childhood long forgotten, the images strive to make you feel as if you just might have been there once, maybe. As is common in Bryant’s work, there is a subtle tension between beautiful and unsettling elements. This contrast creates a sense of mystery and invites the viewer to construct their own interpretation of the scenes. In the safety of a world poised between reality and imagination where common symbols mingle with strange ones, her characters expose their fears, doubts, despairs and longings.

Folie à Deux Family Tree Monotypes and Glass Statues by Curt Schauer

KALEID Gallery, 88 South Fourth St.

Fictitious Portraits by John Renzel
A series of traditional style character portraits but with a colorful and slightly demented edge.

Rights–Rituals–Regards new work by Troy Sims
Why do I form judgments of others to validate myself? In this series of mixed media paintings, and sculptures constructed of handmade paper and wire, artist Troy Sims touches on personal issues such as: civil rights, honoring our ancestors, and how we perceive beauty.
This body of work explores the subjective world we live in, and the sea of opinions we deal with on a daily basis.

Other highlights include BLOODWORK: BODIES at Anno Domini, Naked! at Higher Fire Clayspace, Adam Everett Quartet for San Jose Jazz and Movin’ on Up! the 2011 members’ exhibition at WORKS.
