Beautiful Bizarre Curated Exhibition “Midnight Garden” @ Modern Eden Gallery

We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment.

Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

‘Midnight Garden’, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s fourth curated exhibition at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, brings together over 90 of the world’s best two and three dimensional artists. Each artist exploring the ‘Midnight Garden’ theme through their own unique styles, genres and mediums.

The Midnight Garden provides a place for you to leave your everyday worries behind. All of the 90+ artists involved have created doorways into their own imaginary worlds – places of peace, magic and mystery within the Midnight Garden.

‘Midnight Garden’ will also showcase the work of the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize 2020 winners, in each of the four Award categories: INPRNT Traditional Art Award (1st, 2nd and 3rd Prize Winners); iCanvas Photography Award (1st and 3rd Prize Winners); Yasha Young Sculpture Award (1st, 2nd and 3rd Prize Winners); ZBrush Digital Art Award  (1st, 2nd and 3rd Prize Winners) and of course, our overall 1st Prize Winner.
