For many, the month of October is a time of excitement as all things dark and twisty seem to lurk in the drafty corridors of Halloween’s eerie expectations. What better way to help celebrate than with a collection of artwork geared to pique your senses with the remarkably unusual.
Collaborating with Audra Kunkle, owner of San Francisco’s iniquitous Loved To Death, on the evening of October 6, Modern Eden Gallery will host the opening reception for ‘Loved to Death’, a new group exhibition featuring a selection of talented artists in both the Bay area and around the world. For this highly anticipated show, each artist communicates an inspiriting dark side narrative motivated by antiquities, Victorian jewels, enchanting crystals, skulls, taxidermy, natural history, and all the unique oddities of Loved To Death.
Co-Curated with Audra Kunkle of oddities boutique Loved to Death

Loved To Death is a local treasure and was featured on the Science Channel’s television show, Oddities San Francisco. Loved To Death started out as an art endeavor for Kunkle, making Victorian-themed anthropomorphic taxidermy dioramas and jewelry, and now specializes in odd antiquities and Victoriana.
