Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s 11th curated exhibition, ‘Midnight Garden’ is currently on view at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco!
Midnight Garden, our 4th exhibition curated by Beautiful Bizarre Magazine opened last weekend to enthusiastic viewers online and in person. Exhibition curator and BBM Editor-in-Chief Danijela Krha Purssey has assembled some of the greatest talent in the contemporary art scene across the globe. Walking into the gallery, guests have been struck by the sheer beauty and grandeur of the artworks adorning the gallery walls.Kim Larson, Modern Eden Gallery Director
