Opening Reception: Kari-Lise Alexander's 'A Lovelorn Theft' & 'The 20/20 Project'

by Kim Larson September 16, 2015

On Saturday September 12, 2015 Modern Eden debuted "A Lovelorn Theft", our debut solo exhibition with Seattle-based artist  Kari-Lise Alexander In this new series, Alexander’s work is inspired by tales of swan maidens and selkies of Nordic folklore.  Gallery patrons were thrilled to meet the artist in person and marvel over the details in her intricate and intriguing oil paintings.

In addition to 'A Lovelorn Theft', we are featuring 'The 20/20 Project' a group show featuring contemporary artists working with a fellow artist to create one unique vision. Collaboration—or joint production by two artists—is a common style among musicians and performance artists. It has not been as popular in the world of art, and especially in modern art. But the strong sense of individualism long possessed by artists of fine art was set aside for this dynamic project.

Both exhibitions are on view through October 3, 2015 at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco.
