Champagne Opening Reception6/5/2014
Verge Center for the Arts is pleased to present our first exhibition in our newly remodeled space, "Champagne," curated by San Francisco visual and performing artist, Yarrow Slaps.
The event runs from 6-9pm at 625 S Street, Sacramento, Ca 95811.
A nod to both the celebratory nature of Verge's long anticipated reopening, as well as the exuberant nature of many of the works in the show, "Champagne" will include artists both emerging and established from a variety of backgrounds.
Many of the artists featured in "Champagne" produce works that are solidly grounded in a street art aesthetic, interweaving pop culture references with both fine art and low brow sensibilities. From Clorophilla's vividly ambiguous photographs, to Dustin Fosnot's clever micro installations, and Spencer Keeton Cunningham's minimalist murals, each artist in the show exhibits a distinctly different approach to their work.
This exhibition will draw artists both global and national to the region, including those who hail from as nearby as San Francisco and as far away as Italy. The exhibition is not only a coming out party for Verge and the sixteen artists featured, but also a celebration of youth culture and ideas.
"Champagne" features Brett Amory, Clorophilla, Spencer Keeton Cunningham, Angela Dalinger, Don't Fret, Harley Lafarrah Eaves, Dustin Fosnot, Michelle Guintu, Justin Hager, Chad Hasegawa, Sean Newport, Luke Pelletier, Delfina Piretti, Rye Purvis, Yarrow Slaps, Alfred Vidaurri, and Shawn Whisenant.
