June Show

Coraline, by Chrystal Chan.  8″x10″ (framed size: 10.75″x 12.75″) oil on board.

Coraline” will be part of a group show called “Fiction”, at Modern Eden Gallery (San Francisco, CA).  It’s a show based on an artist’s favorite book.  I chose “Coraline”, by Neil Gaiman because I really enjoy his writing style and I also like the concept of another dimension parallel to reality : ). It’s a concept I feel strongly connected to in my own work.  

Opening Reception: This Saturday!! June 22, 6-10pm. 
Show date: June 22- July 13.  
Address: 403 Francisco St. San Francisco, CA. 
If you’re interested in purchasing, please contact: info@moderneden.com or call 1(415)956-3303 10am-6pm Tuesday-Saturday.
Here’s the flyer and artist line up (can also be found on Modern Eden’s site)!
Hope to see you there : )!!
