Beautiful Bizarre Curated Exhibition “Halcyon Days” @ Modern Eden Gallery
Halcyon Days, is Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s 14th international curated exhibition, and 5th at the prestigious Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, California USA. It brings together over 80 of the world’s best two and three dimensional artists, each exploring the Halcyon Days theme through their own unique styles, genres and mediums.
Halcyon Days: A period of tranquility and happiness, often nostalgic, used to describe an idyllic time in the past that is remembered.
The last few years have seen ongoing struggle for many people around the world, and of course the unending damage to nature. But rather than focusing on these challenges that easily send us into a doom spiral, I wanted this exhibition to focus on the good times, the positive memories, the experiences that bring warmth and comfort when we recall them. Halcyon Days is an expression of joy, and our combined hope for the future.
Some days I wish I could go back in life. Not to change anything, but to feel a few things twice.
Halcyon Days will also showcase the work of the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize 2022 winners, in each of the four Award categories: RAYMAR Traditional Art Award (1st, 2nd and 3rd Prize Winners); INPRNT Photography Award (1st, 2nd and 3rd Prize Winners); Yasha Young Projects Sculpture Award (1st and 3rd Prize Winners); iCanvas Digital Art Award (1st, 2nd and 3rd Prize Winners) and of course, the Grand Prize Winner.
