Modern Eden Gallery Press// Since 2011 we have curated this annual exhibition in celebration of the painted portrait. Over the last decade we’ve featured some of the top contemporary painters of today, and presented themes that pushed the boundaries of traditional and academic portraiture. This year we opened up our invitational format to seek new submissions from our extended community of artists. We were both overwhelmed and honored by the response we received. We are thrilled to welcome 80 exhibiting artists, including 45 new artists to Modern Eden who will be exhibiting with us for the first time!
