Modern Eden Gallery Presents Calvin Ma, Blend In: Standstill + Bacchus Group Exhibition

Join Modern Eden Gallery this weekend as they celebrate San Francisco based fine art sculptor, Calvin Ma’s third major solo exhibition at the gallery, Blend In: Standstill. Carving a path from his visionary style to the individual viewer, each ceramic sculpture tells a story of the artist’s imagination. Exploring personal experiences with social anxiety, his work engages our emotional faculties and we find ourselves immersed in the narrative and creative concepts of his feathered friends.

Also opening is Bacchus Group Exhibition! Mark your calendars and don’t miss each captivating new body of work. Take a trip down memory lane and see past and present exhibitions as well as all available inventory by visiting the gallery website.

We are excited to present our October group exhibition, Bacchus. Bacchus, also known as Dionysus, the Greek god of wine, inebriation, fertility, and theater. He is known to be joyous and kind to those who admire him, yet cruel and mischievous to those who cross him. Participating artists channel the spirit of Bacchus in their work, explore the dichotomy of his character, the dance between pleasure and pandemonium, serenity and chaos.
