Verge @ Axis
Hosted by Axis Gallery, 1517 19th Street, Sacramento, Ca
Hello everybody! Have I some exciting news for you! VCA is going to be having its first real show since we went through the big change.
I have more than 20 reasons for you to brave the cold weather and indulge in your crazy hobby or chosen profession of staring at walls…the VCA artists are going to be showing! The collective of artists over at Axis were kind enough to volunteer their gallery space to us this December. It was an offer we couldn’t refuse :D. Even while wading through the muck and mire of financing and city permits, art finds a way.
So, here’s a sample of work from the VCA artists to get you amped and ready for the show when it opens this Saturday:
Jose di Gregorio
Ianna Nova Frisby

We got some fabulous silent auction items including a gift basket from Trumpette, Dinner for two at Magpie, and art by Chelsea Greninger and Patrick Marasso. In addition to this we’ve opened a tiny antique store in the space with all manner of little treasure and vintage score + a selection of Verge resident artists have completed limited edition works that will be for sale at bargain basement prices!
Scott Soriano and Scott Miller will be djing…
Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza will be flowing and we’ll have tasty snacks for everyone’s enjoyment.

Untitled , Jose Luis di Gregorio, 6″x6″, Archival Print, 2010, Edition of 50
Check out this beautiful piece by Verge resident artist Jose Luis di Gregorio. It’s just one of the many great things you will score by contributing to Verge Center for the Arts Kickstarter campaign in the coming weeks.
Our campaign launched yesterday around 2pm and we are already well over $800. It is my hope that we can crack 1k by the weekend.
Help us make that a reality and more importantly, help Sacramento earn the visual arts resources it has long deserved. Let’s work together to build a better Sacto!
Tonight is the night! The first MidMo Movie Night (MidMoMoNi) at Verge! This evening we will be screening John Carpenter’s The Thing! A $3 donation gets you in the door and we’ll have beer and popcorn.
Rumor has is there just may be a Charles and Ray Eames short or two to kick things off.
Come have fun with your Verge buddies!
