A Perilous Journey: Tara Krebs Solo Exhibition

Opening Reception: Saturday August 16, 2014 6-10 pm

Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to announce A Perilous Journey, the US debut of Canadian illustrator, Tara Krebs. Tara Krebs is a Toronto artist who paints surreal worlds and storybook-style imagery to explore her memories of childhood role-play, and feelings toward the symbiotic nature of all things. Working predominantly in acrylic and oils, her intricately detailed scenes are meant to draw the viewer in, as one would experience while reading a picture book.

The opening reception will be held at Modern Eden Gallery on Saturday, August 16 from 6-10pm. This will be the grand re-opening at our new gallery location at 801 Greenwich in San Francisco. Featured artist, Tara Krebs will be in attendance at the reception. Interactive storybooks where people can write their own stories to the artwork will be available through the gallery. The exhibition will be on display through September 6, 2014 and is free and open to the public.

General information about the gallery: please email Info@ModernEden.com or visit ModernEden.com.

SWEETIE’S
Logo: Sweetie's First Friday August 1st — New Exhibit Opening: Ephemerae, plural of ephemera, plural of ephemeron.

Thinking she might soon be moving her garden, Michele Stern began using a sunprint paper as a way to record the flowers in her garden. She became fascinated with transitory images that emerged as the water hit the paper. It is a brief moment when dark and light co-mingle as they exchange places. The giclée prints on display in this show freeze that moment during the processing of impermanent images of impermanent blossoms that grace our impermanent residence on this ever-changing planet.
