Modern Eden Gallery Celebrates THE PORTRAIT SHOW 12: MYTH

This weekend Modern Eden Gallery invites us to experience the opening reception of THE PORTRAIT SHOW 12: MYTH, their 12th annual exhibition dedicated to the timeless art of portraiture.

Immersing ourselves in the artist’s individual interpretation and unique visual style, we are transported to a world of fantasy and legend, where the boundaries of possibility are pushed, and creativity knows no bounds. Myths are not limited to ancient civilizations; they continue to play a role in contemporary culture. From urban legends to folklore, myths persist in shaping the world around us. By exploring these concepts, imaginative compositions, and intriguing narratives, we have the opportunity to revel in this beautiful collection and honor each participating artist. Join us, won’t you?

Take a trip down memory lane and view past exhibitions. You can also visit the gallery website to explore upcoming events and available inventory.

Modern Eden Gallery Press Release //

Modern Eden Gallery is proud to present our 12th annual portrait exhibition, Myth. In the tradition of the show, we once again opened up for submissions from our extended community of artists and are excited to present the works of 25 artists exhibiting at Modern Eden for the first time, in addition to returning favorites.

The collection features imaginative portrait paintings that depict one of the gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines, beasts, or benevolent beings of global mythology. These archetypes have long been creative food for artists throughout history, and by bringing their narratives into to form of portraiture a deeper connection to the mythological being can be understood. We hope you enjoy!
