The Portrait Show X @ Modern Eden Gallery

A portrait tells a story, shares a moment in time, a feeling, or ignites the most nuanced memory. Through elements of light and tonal atmosphere, emotions are revealed, colours enhanced, textures are felt – and it takes you somewhere, perhaps unexpected. In their 10th edition, Modern Eden Gallery proudly presents their Annual Portrait Invitational, “The Portrait Show X”, inviting you to explore this wonderful new collection of work!! Brimming with expressive visionary aesthetics and captivating compositional elements, the individuality of each artist surfaces through an array of styles and artistic inclinations.

Celebrating ten years of weird and wonderful portraiture.

Press Release //

We are beyond excited for the 10th edition of The Portrait Show! The exhibition opens this Saturday, June 11 in San Francisco. Over the ten years that we’ve been curating this show, we’ve had a chance to work with some of the most creative and imaginative figurative painters working today. The concept began with our love of portraiture, and the goal of presenting the traditional genre outside of the constraints of academic realism. We are proud to celebrate ten years of weird and wonderful portraits in an exhibition that honors the long tradition of figurative artwork. In addition to returning favorites, we once again opened up submissions from our extended community of artists. We are thrilled to be exhibiting works by over 60 artists, nearly half of whom are completely new to Modern Eden.
