Modern Eden is pleased to announce their 1st Anniversary Show, an exhibition featuring an all-star collection of Modern Eden's stand-out exhibiting artists of the past year. The opening reception for our Anniversary Show will be held at Modern Eden on Saturday, June 11th from 7-10pm. The exhibition will be on display through July 11, 2011.
"The Anniversary Show" is a celebration of Modern Eden's first year and the amazing amount of fun, friends, and art we have all shared. A calendar year of Modern Eden's artists were asked to make work that reflect the theme "Modern Eden", the intertwining of the natural world with the modern condition. Our showcase artists are Ryan Gannon (Grand Opening), Kristen Van Diggelen (The Garden Show), Nicomi Nix Turner (Nocturnal), Natasha Dikareva (Reliquaries), Bradley Platz & Kim Larson (The Studio), SCW Collaborative (SCW), Jaxon Northon (December Group Show), Leilani Bustamante (Menagerie), Mark Friday & Deborah Jang (Lost & Found), and Sergio Lopez (Painted Roses).
The June 11th Opening will have live music from local DJ Edward Aten (www.swift.fm) and drinks will be served to our 21+ guests. In addition to The Anniversary Show, we will be showcasing a group exhibition called "Pieces of Eden" where every exhibiting artist of the past year was asked to make a piece that reflects their unique style. "Pieces of Eden" will collectively form a showcase of everything that makes Modern Eden so great and unique; the artists! Participating artists include Robert Bowen, Lance Hewison, Leon Loucheur, Mary Syring, Steve Javiel, Doubleparlour, Albert Ramos, MB Wada, Daniel J. Valadez, Daniela Lencioni, Michelle Waters, Lacey Bryant, Sheri DeBow, Christine Benjamin, Helen Wilson, Sarah Vanphravong, Carlos Villez, Lucy Hillenbrand, Helice Wen, MJ Lindo, Carol Hegarty, Howard Whitehouse, Venus Sanghvi, Arrian Binnings, Marco Mejia, Benjamin J.
