Preview: The Zealot’s Elixer – Curated By Doubleparlour @ Modern Eden Gallery [SF]

Fresh off the heels of the opening for Conjoined V, the Chet Zar curated exhibit at Santa Monica’s Copro Gallery, comes another sculpture-based group show highlighting visual artists that are exploring more 3-dimensional territories in their work.  Opening this Saturday, February 7th at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, The Zealot’s Elixer brings together nearly 2 dozen contributors offering up pieces “in a variety of mediums including ceramic, resin, wood, and found objects.”  Among those featured will be the husband and wife duo of Ernie and Cassandra Velasco, collectively known as “Doubleparlour,” who are curating the impressive lineup for the event, which revolves around the theme of “false prophets and snake oil.”

You can check out number of preview images of the work below the following event details.

Dead C

Located in Seattle, Dead C is the founder/editor, as well as the principal writer and photographer, of Monster Fresh. Creating the site in 2007, he did so with a specific dream in mind. Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it's hard to recall all of the details. "I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn't actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room... but it wasn't actually here... it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle."
