Current and Past Exhibitions and Events

Lauren Mayer: Tracing

Exhibition Dates: June 5–June 27, 2009
Opening Reception: June 5, 6–9 pm
VERTIGO will be open First Fridays and third Fridays for Collectors Preview Nights from 6–9 pm throughout the event.



This summer VERTIGO will feature MFA grads from CU Boulder. The first in this series is Lauren Mayer with a provocative installation of porcelain objects titled "Tracing".

Mayer states, “An object, be it a letter or a piece of furniture, possesses the capacity to act as a proxy for things beyond itself and its seemingly simple material existence. They can subtly disclose elusive, but poignant aspects of someone’s internal life— of the places they have called home, perhaps whom they have loved, and what they have left behind out of necessity or sheer abandonment.”

Body Ephemeral

When: April 3–May 30, 2009
Artist Reception: Rescheduled for Friday, May 15, 2009, 6-10 pm, because the original one on April 17 was fizzled out by a late spring snow storm! Featuring the music of Roger Green.

Another inspirational show at VERTIGO, featuring the photographic works of Richard Peterson, Rayna Manger Tedford, and Chris Perez.


Richard Peterson

Rayna Manger Tedford

Chris Perez

While these three artists are local, and accomplished artists using the medium of photography, the concept regarding abstraction of the figure will enable this exhibit to cross boundaries between the medium of the photographic technique, the relevance of an ever controversial portrayal of the figure in an art context, and most importantly the conceptual (perhaps psychological ?) vision that lies between process and image. Mind, Process, and esoteric Beauty.
