  • The Portrait Show VIII


    Opening: Saturday, July 11, 2020
    Exhibition Dates: July 11–August 1, 2020

    Presenting the eighth annual portrait show at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. Since 2011 we’ve hosted this annual exhibition, which presents artists with a particular theme that plays on the history and pageantry of the painted portrait.

    Portraits come in many forms, but none perhaps so defining as the profile. From the profile, one must extract visual clues about the subject with minimal amounts of information. In profile, the artist is able to preserve a sense of mystery about the subject or to keenly present a narrative, allowing the viewer to observe without being seen. Every profile is unique, and like fingerprints, the contours and lines that define our facial features are ours alone.

    Featuring Leilani Bustamante, Catherine Moore, Lacey Bryant, Emilio Villalba, Dan Cimmermann, Henry Schreiber, Ruth Speer, Adam Caldwell, Catherine Moore, Ania Tomicka, Jacqueline Gallagher, Daniel J Valadez, Erica Calardo, Sandra Yagi, Matthew Robertson, John Walker, Jasmine Worth, Craig LaRotonda, Lara Dann, and others.
