This past Saturday, we rolled out the red carpet to welcome an international roster of artists and collectors for our latest exhibition, Femme to Femme Fatale curated by Editor in Chief of the Australian-based art publication, beautiful.bizarre Magazine, Danijela Krha. 

As soon as the doors opened, the gallery was buzzing with excitement. Artists delighted in meeting Krha while fans of participating artists were thrilled by a chance to chat with and see the artworks in person.

Femme to Femme Fatale is on view through October 8, 2016 at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco.

Red Carpet Fun:

Delighted to have the company of friends far and wide, last week we gathered for Jana Brike's latest solo show as well as an intimate musical serenade by Anomie Belle who sat beside a wall of artwork from her new album "Flux".

Jana, here all the way from Latvia, embodied the same poise and intricacy as her work while graciously mingling with collectors and other visiting artists. Her beautiful oil paintings fill the majority of the gallery, seeming to take us through a fairytale-like experience from an intriguingly conscious perspective.

Adjacently, a colorful wall of work features the same subject seen by 14 different artists, many of which were in attendance. Toward the end of the evening, Anomie Belle sat with her acoustic guitar and sang beautifully for the crowd. Hearing her while seeing the work brought out the beautiful commonality, confirmed by Anomie, which is a feeling of appearing and disappearing simultaneously.

Various conversations being had between artists and friends.

Jana Brike's Superabundance of Ordinary Being and Anomie Belle: Flux group show are both on display until September 10th, 2016.

Last Saturday we celebrated a beautiful collection of moving and sentimental works by sculpture artist, Erika Sanada at her opening reception. Inspired by her childhood experiences of fear and concern, the summer's evening light provided a dreamlike setting for her delicate yet moody ceramic creatures.

Alongside Erika, we proudly revealed our group show called A-Chroma, featuring an array of primarily monochromatic artwork. This diverse collection, stripped of color, reveals the true talent and diligence behind black and white artwork.

A great turnout of friends, artists, and collectors enjoying the show.

On Saturday, June 11, 2016, Modern Eden opened it's doors to friends, old and new, for the celebration of their 6th gallery anniversary and for the debut of their annual invitational, Portraits of Friends. Gallery artists were in attendance along with many of the subjects of the paintings, it was amusing to spy real life versions of the artwork gracing the gallery walls. The show is on view through July 1, 2016, be sure to check it out! 

Saturday evening brought art lovers together for Lacey Bryant's Escape and New Books by Matthew Robertson where both Bay Area artists were in attendance. Lacey Bryant debuted an expressive new series created while in residency at Chalk Hill in Sonoma, CA. Matthew Robertson created a new series of book paintings to create a dimensional gallery display that wowed viewers.
