Hi there guys, it’s me Michael Cuffe! I’m Editor in Chief of Warholian and I have some exciting news!
After last year’s successful Tarot: Art of Fortune show, I’m excited to announce my plans to again work with Kim Larson and Bradley Platz of Modern Eden gallery. Over the past few years I’ve watched Modern Eden grow under their talented direction, and I’m very pleased to be working with them again. They are two of the most professional gallery owners I’ve ever met, and they truly do everything to sell an artist’s work. This is a really a great gallery for artists to present their work, as it is a wonderful space headed by true art professionals.
Last year’s show brought forward purchases from collectors both domestic and internationally, as well as coverage by local news media, various art press, and a constant stream of visitors off the street and from the internet.
UNIVERSE: Art of Existence will bring together artists from San Francisco and beyond on the subject of space, the cosmos, galaxies, celestial bodies, planets, stars, etc. I also welcome the larger outer paradigm of the Universe to relate to things of an atomic scale such as elements of quantum physics, atoms, energy streams, etc. in the art works if the artist chooses. There are many ways an artist can create with the Universe subject matter. I want every artist to feel free to choose to be direct with their work, or to think outside of the box if they choose – the Universe itself is both an outer and inner world.
A fun fact about this exhibition is that it is being put together under a short time frame. I’m looking for fresh work, and new inspiring artistic ideas. I’m hoping to see the artists really flow their best creative energy into this project – and see it as a joint effort – to be part of an exhibition that is also an experiment in creativity. It’s my belief, that after seeing so many bodies of work produced by a broad range of successful artists, that many works come together best under a deadline. It’s inspiring to realize the powerful potential of artists, and it’s so much more fun to see a large exhibition created in a short time frame! Especially from such a talented group!

We love to have you visit us for the opening of UNIVERSE: THE ART OF EXISTENCE on April 12, 2014 from 6pm-10pm at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco! Stop on by, this is going to be a great show!
– Universe Curator Michael Cuffe
