This past Saturday, San Francisco’s Modern Eden Gallery opened its group show “Menagerie,” an animal themed exhibit benefitting the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Works by artists Chelsea Brown, Robert Bowen, Helice Wen, Archer Dougherty, Mary Syring and a dozen or so others were on view and will continue to be until March 4th. The works range from dark pieces resonating occult themes and populated by wildlife, to whimsical and even kitschy cartoonish critters that pull inspiration from pop culture.
