"Beautiful Garbage" by Sandi Billingsley at KALEID Gallery

KALEID Gallery is proud to present "Beautiful Garbage," a new exhibition of paintings and sculptures by resident artist Sandi Billingsley.

Sandi Billingsley is an American artist who has sold her art and painted in homes from coast to coast. As a professional faux finisher, she has over twenty five years of experience understanding and recreating surfaces, painting murals and combining them into trompe l’œil. For a decade and a half, she has applied these skills to gallery shows of paintings and sculptures which have attracted collectors from across the United States and several International destinations.

Sandi has always been wonderfully enthralled with creating but her first objective is to be friendly to the Earth. She explores diverse styles in her art. The majority of her projects start with recycling. She’s inspired by found and gifted materials. Sandi focuses heavily on structures created from used wood, discarded paper and packaging styrofoam.

Sandi’s art explores beauty and extreme color. Her many passions for life on this planet, for challenge, and for the plight of women have led her to create charged pieces in seemingly different styles. Sandi Billingsley is extremely grateful to have lived a life of creativity.

KALEID is open for viewing this exhibit:
Friday July 24th & Saturday July 25th from 5pm–9pm.
Free admission.

We will have strict safety protocols including low capacity, social distancing and masks required at all times in the gallery.

"Unexpected" Winner Announced at Cinequest Closing Night

Congratulations to Gianfranco Paolozzi, Harumo Sato and Rose Margaret on their moment in the spotlight at a packed house at the Cinequest grand Closing Night. Rose was presented with an award for her wining "Unexpected" painting and all the artists were recognized with a standing ovation.

The paintings are quite remarkable and available for purchase if you'd like to acquire one of them. Please email us at info[at]phantomgalleries[dot]com for pricing info.


“Its Center Everywhere & Circumference Nowhere” by Rose Margaret
“The ouroboros serves as a halo on the angel of Eternity. With its gaze turned to us, I am reminded of the elusive place between being awake and falling asleep— those strange and beautiful few seconds when reality bends just as the mind slips into unconsciousness. Our human parts can look so unexpectedly alien, can’t they? “

Rose Margaret
is a painter, wood-burner, caregiver, composting enthusiast, student of permaculture, and muncher of plants. She does her best to support Mother Nature's wellness on a daily basis.


“Over the River of Tears.” by Harumo Sato
“This piece is dedicated to people who suffered from a big earthquake in Japan 8 years ago, called 311 earthquake.

The final day of the live painting was March 10th (in Japan it’s March 11th), and it’s the day when the earthquake happened. Nobody could predict this “once-in-a-1000 years” level’s earthquake. It was a unforgettable disaster, but it also unexpectedly became a turning point when I really started focusing into making art as a practice of pray. “

Harumo Sato is a California based Japanese visual artist who graduated from University at Buffalo in 2015. In questioning our busy and highly industrialized daily lives, she translates old mythological analogy and allegory imagery into modern, colorful, and unique visual images. She has a strong interest in pattern design which has traveled through many cultures and contexts over the centuries. With the various colorful materials like screen prints, Japanese watercolor, sumi ink, and acrylic she seeks visual pleasure and vivacious energy to open the viewer's mind.


“Journal: March 7–10 2019” by Gianfranco Paolozzi
“The dripping of the colors, the rotation of the easel, and the presence of the people around me created the unexpected work.”

Gianfranco Paolozzi is as much a conceptual artist as he is a painter. Each painting is considered a memory journal....the painting evolves over time, just as our memories seem to. The "finished" date of the paintings are a date of abandonment rather than completion.

A very special Thank You to the entire Cinequest family for their support of these artists and Phantom Galleries each year.
