Opening Reception: June 8, 2019, 6:00 pm–9:00 pm
Exhibition Dates: June 8–July 5, 2019
Modern Eden Gallery proudly presents SELF-ish, our 8th annual portrait show. Every year we challenge a select group of artists with a particular theme, which plays on the history and pageantry of the painted portrait. This year’s theme invites artists to consider the self-portrait through a modern lens.
In a selfie dominated culture, we are excited to see our invited artists take the motif of the self-portrait beyond the academic, and into the symbolic, bringing their works into a contemporary dialogue. The portraits will be re-imagined outside of the academic approach and the artists will translate themselves with symbols and metaphor.
Please join us for our very special annual anniversary exhibition as Modern Eden Gallery turns 9! Select participating artists will be in attendance at the opening reception. The exhibition is free and open to the public and complimentary refreshments will be served.

The exhibition will be on display through July 5, 2019 and is free and open to the public.
