Over the ten years that we've been curating this exhibition, we've had a chance to work with some of the most creative and imaginative figurative painters working today. The show began with our love of portraiture, and the goal of presenting this traditional genre outside of the constraints and boundaries of academic realism. We are proud to celebrate ten years of weird and wonderful portraits in an exhibition that celebrates and honors the long tradition of painting.
In addition to returning favorites, we once again opened up submissions from our extended community of artists. Our goal was to offer this entry point for new artists once per year, in an ongoing effort to support and grow our community of imaginative, figurative painters. We are pleased with the results and proud to be exhibiting works by over 60 artists, including 30 of whom are completely new to Modern Eden.
