Reception with the Artist, Saturday, September 21st, 3:00 - 5:00PM
Ken Kalman invites us to explore what has made an impact on him and what continues to resonate. His subjects relate to world geography, history, and politics, cultural events and childhood stories.
Not unlike those occasional roadside signs that invite you to an important but often little known bit of history or geography, this work marks those places, some little known, where my own attention has come to rest. - Ken Kalman
His artwork is inspired by childhood stories and fantasies, years of mastering handmade balsa wood airplanes and ships, obsessed by the most precious coins and stamps, and by the creatures that have inhabited his life and memory.
A Detroit native, Kalman studied and worked in Boston and Albuquerque before settling in the Bay Area more than 20 years ago. He holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a Bachelor's degree from the University of New Mexico.
