3am is the hour for witches, spirits, magic, and introspection. In many areas of folklore, it is the time when the veil between our world and the other side is the thinnest. It is known as the Devil's Hour, because Christ is said to have been crucified at the opposite time, 3pm. It is the darkest and coldest part of the night, and when ghosts and spells are said to be at their most powerful. In that way, it reminds us of the old festival of Samhain, when the same powerful effects were understood and celebrated.
DIA DE LOS MUERTOS X
Featured artist: Myriam Powell
Cactus Gallery, Los Angeles
Scheduled to run October 14 - November 4, 2017
Opening reception: Saturday, October 14, 2017 * 6p-9p
Dia de los muertos is a traditional Mexican holiday that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to remember those who have died. Altars, marigolds, offerings, skulls, and Monarch butterflies are symbolic of the season.
Dia de los muertos brings the advent of death to light, making the concept of "the end" less scary, and helping people feel a strong, healthy connection to the spirits of their loved ones.
In order to honor and remember those who have died, we will be building an altar and welcome you to bring your photographs and "ofrendas" (offerings) to add to our community altar. "Ofrendas" can be any thing that was important or special to the deceased, such as tools, awards, hats, etc... including favorite refreshments and foods. In Mexico, it is believed that the long hard journey from the afterlife back to Earth should rewarded with nourishment and refreshments for the returning souls.
Our altar will include the presence of the four elements: water, earth, wind, and fire. No offering can be complete if one of those elements is missing, and their symbolic representation is a fundamental part of the offering. In addition, many cempazuchitls (marigold), called the flower of death, will be included, as the Aztecs believed that the strong scent could wake the souls of the dead and help guide them back for the celebration.

This upcoming August (2017) will mark the 50 year anniversary of San Francisco’s infamous Summer of Love . This event was highlighted by the largest gathering of Hippies (or Flower Children), the rise of 60’s music legends, and the widespread use of psychedelic drugs, culminating in the summer of 1967 in the city’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. The late 60s marked the beginning of the counterculture movement that would grow to attract and give rise to the great artists, activists, writers, freethinkers of the 20th century.

BAD GIRLS & OUTCASTS will feature the women of fairytales, myths and legends who don't necessarily get Prince Charming. Or if they do, he leaves her for the goody-two-shoes Princess. These women may often go unrecognized (or is simply hidden away), because they don't fit the archetypal feminine canon of princesses and heroines, or the safe progression from maiden to mother to crone.
Our women may live, even thrive, on the dark side of the Moon, at the bottom of the ocean, in the depths of the primeval forest, in the hidden, rebellious, shadowy realms of a woman's soul, or in the rejected, often devalued parts of a man's psyche.
Our women are strong, wild, opinionated, seductive, bawdy, despondent, spurned, full of tears or fury. They can be crafty, vengeful, devious, evil. They go on their solitary way and do not aim to please anyone or ask for anyone's approval. They hope, however, to be recognized as who they are and to be seen.

Lovers' Eyes were Georgian miniatures, normally watercolour on ivory, depicting the eye or eyes of a spouse, loved one or child. These were usually commissioned for sentimental reasons and were often worn as bracelets, brooches, pendants or rings with richly decorated frames, serving the same emotional need as lockets hiding portraits or locks of hair. This fad started in the late 1700s.
Modern Eden Gallery will be hosting a group show where artists take on the tradition of the Lover's Eye.
Opening Reception: February 3, 2017 • 6pm - 9pm

The exhibition explores the ideas of faeries and enchantment. A fairy (also fay, fae, fair folk; from faery, faerie, “realm of the fays”) is a mythical being or legendary creature in European folklore, a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical, supernatural, or preternatural. Artists have created works of art based on their inspirations of “Fae”.

This exhibition is created in a partnership with the You Rock Foundation. One in Four people have or will struggle from a diagnosable mental health struggle in their lifetime. There is an intense need for awareness of this difficult subject matter as an insight into the atypical release artists face as they express some of their deepest motivations, feelings and their own personal contact with the subject matter portrayed through their work. Each artist will work with a mental health disorder of choice based on personal experience or outside influences that have impacted their lives. Art is an invaluable, an incredible resource to educate people on mental health crisis we face worldwide and the stigmas unfortunately still attached to them. This exhibition hopes to bring hope, understanding and awareness to a very important topic.
