Happy new year! The year 2020 marks a major milestone for Modern Eden as we proudly celebrate 10 years as a gallery in San Francisco. It's been such an incredible journey and we are so grateful for the artists, patrons, fans and friends that have made the gallery what it is today. As our business has grown, so too has our family, our community, and the scope and ambition of our projects.
Today, we are thrilled to announce that we are moving the gallery in 2020 to a beautiful new space in the city, at the heart of the central arts district. The new location doubles our available exhibition, artwork storage, and production space while creating new opportunities for growth and opening new possibilities for our artists.
We’ll be debuting the new space with a major group exhibition this March 2020 and we can't wait to share more details with you in the coming weeks.
Our final day of business at 801 Greenwich Street will be Friday, January 3, which is also the last day to view our current exhibition: Stephanie Law:Conjure. We'll be open late until 9:00 pm for a book signing andclosing receptionwith the artist. Please join us in welcoming the new decade, along with an exciting new chapter for the gallery and our artists.
Thank you for your ongoing engagement and support!
Aunia Kahn is a multi-faceted creative entrepreneur and a globally awarded, collected, and exhibited figurative artist/photographer, published author, instructor, and inspirational speaker. We asked Aunia a few questions for her artist of the day feature at the gallery.
Since childhood my family inspired me to embark on various creative journeys such as music, poetry, and theater, which are hereditary to the creative approaches I use in my artwork today. From a young age I wrote and performed songs and poetry, as well as acted in a local theater with my whole family. When I came to the US to study art, I joined the school called Safehouse Atelier, which focused on traditional academic drawing and painting, as well as digital concept art.
On February 12, we opened Secret Hallway the highly anticipated solo exhibition from Oakland-based artist Nadezda. Focusing on narratives carefully gathered from the hidden chambers of her imagination and transformed into dreamscapes, her multifaceted artworks are the intimate windows into the inner world of her peculiar characters and creatures.
