Exhibition Dates: February 16- March 9, 2013
Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 6pm

Modern Eden is pleased to announce “Venice”, an international group exhibition featuring works inspired by Venice, Italy.  Venice is a city like no other on earth with its canals, baroque architecture, and fabled history. From the early Venetian artists Titian, Bellini and Canaletto to later artists like Whistler, Monet and Sargeant, Venice has been a constant muse and inspiration.  Idealized and romanticized in art and literature, traveled and adored by countless millions, Venice continues to inspire to this day. The grand decaying architecture, the reflections off the grand canal, the dramatic horrors of the Carnival and the colorful delights of the sinking city all define an otherworldly place, a place of macabre intentions, where imagination fills in the blanks of what is possible.

Featuring newly inspired works from Melissa Hartley, Shawn Kawa, Jaclyn Alderete, Zofia Bogusz, Sandra Yagi, Thea Saks, Steven Suiter, Lara Dann, Cory Benhatzel, Emilio Villalba, Bradley Platz, Lauren May, Henry Schreiber, Redd Walitzki, Helen Bayly, Debra Gardner Abarca, Mike Bell, Erica Calardo, Derek Harrison, Cayetano Valenzuela, Melanie Alves, Amy Minchew, Natalia Pierandrei, Kenneth Burris, Larisa Voynova, Kurtis Rykovich, and Daisy Church.



The opening reception for "Venice” will be held at Modern Eden Gallery on Saturday, February 16th from 6-10pm. The exhibition will be on display through March 9, 2013 and is free and open to the public. Complimentary beverages will be served by Three Wishes and Rolling Rock. There will be live music provided by Brendan Johnson during the opening. Select featured artists will be in attendance.
