Mary Syring: Bloodline

Fri Aug 2 (full schedule below)
Modern Eden Gallery
6 pm–9 pm
Gallery Opening, Art


Modern Eden Gallery proudly presents Bloodline, the debut solo exhibition from San Francisco-based illustrator Mary Syring. A long time group show participant, we are eager and excited to present a broader range of work for this exhibition. Syring has a signature style, and this series expands on her illustrative reinterpretations of vintage portraits and ephemera through the medium of ink on paper, each work a thoughtful interplay of art and antique frame.

From the artist:

Do you know the descendants of the witches
As they creep gently through historic page
With their ribbons and twitching digits
Weaving grand tales that never age
Have you met the successors of the witches
Enchantment coursing through their veins
A bloodline molasses thick with conjured lore
Chanting invocations through dancing flames
Please join us for the reception on July 13. Mary Syring will be in attendance at the opening reception. The exhibition is free and open to the public and complimentary, refreshments will be served.

Mary Syring is a San Francisco-based artist and illustrator interpreting themes of European folklore from childhood and the surreal magic world of her imagination. The result is a haunting and charming mix of portraiture with timeless qualities set within a context of now and never before.
