SPLURGE ON VERGE!!!!!!

 

It's that time again. The time of year when we ask you to ask not, what Verge can do for you, but what you can do for Verge. For the past two years Verge has worked tirelessly to bring you quality programming, unique special events, access to arts education from lectures, and workshops, to film screenings and hands on art making experiences. Verge has gone on the road taking Sacramento work to venues in Oakland and San Francisco sharing the talent that exists here with the world at large. We've made partnerships with other cultural organizations including the Sacramento French Film Festival, The Crest Theatre, Old Miss University, the Gay and Lesbian Center, B Street Theatre, Cap Stage, Center for Contemporary Art Sacramento, and Axis Gallery. 

The facility continues to grow and expand adding three new studios this year in addition to a fine art print making facility. As we move into 2013 we are raising funds to complete the project, bringing back the high caliber art exhibitions you came to expect from us in our first location, along with an on-site classroom, and the final 17 studios bringing the total # up to 40.

In order to keep this train on the tracks we need your support. Every little bit helps to ensure that we may continue to provide quality art resources to the Sacramento community.

TV DINNER

Join Verge Center for the Arts and Selland Family Restaurants Executive Chef Michael Thiemann for an evening of interactive art and fine dining. 

Often ridiculed and sometimes reviled, the TV Dinner has become a mainstay of the American culinary experience. Using the squarist of square meals as his inspiration, Chef Mike will prepare a multi-course dining experience to be enjoyed while viewing a one of kind "TV Channel" compiled by Verge artists. You won't want to miss this unique marriage of fine food and fine art.

Check out this great video of Chef Mike in the kitchen!
