Two Buck Tuesday / Tuesday July 19
Busy sidewalk outside the gallery
Tuesday night we took a family trip to Kaleid Gallery, on the occasion of "Two Buck Tuesday". We had a great time and did not have enough time to see and do everything. Here are a few photos.
"Illegal Aliens" clay sculptures by Ivan Gonzales
Watching henna tattoo artist Laurel quickly drawing intricate designs with henna.
"Sody Pop Art" with Crafting for Cheapskates. Just need an aluminum can of anything (provided), cut one end, cut lengthwise, fold and weave.
Shannon Amidon demonstrating her hand woven pieces of photographs.
Melitzanosalata (grilled eggplant, roasted garlic and fresh milled herb spread) and Htipiti (whipped feta and rosted pepper spread with a slight kick to it) were served with a fresh house made grilled pita. We sampled amazing "Greek fusion food" from MYTH taverna and Lounge, which just opened downtown San Jose.
Lara Sophia helping the kids make their own terrarium with layers of tiny gravel pebbles, coal pebbles, Pete moss and compost soil last. Then there are succulents, seeds, and plants to chose from. Finally one can chose a few elements of decoration like figurines, glass beads or cool rocks.
