Assemble at Vertical Gallery

This article was originally published on May 13, 2013 on Art Nerd by writer Rachel Kaplan. This article is part of a series of article exchange partnerships between Sixty Inches From Center and other online blogs and journals that have missions similar to ours–to document and support the visual arts in Chicago. The goal of these partnerships is to build bridges within our writing community, help promote one another to new audiences and give more exposure to the art that keeps our Chicago experience compelling.

April 6, 2013 Vertical Gallery opened its doors in Ukranian Village featuring a selection of some of Chicago’s most prolific and talented urban contemporary artists. Curated by Dont Fret, a staple artist in the streets of Chicago, “The Young and the Restless” exhibited artists such as Hebru Brantley, Tiptoe, Left Handed Wave, Nice One and Clam Nation, amongst many others.

The gallery highlights contemporary local and international artists who are influenced by urban environments, street art and street culture, graffiti, pop culture and illustration.

On Saturday May 4th, 2013, Vertical Gallery  held their second opening showcasing another group show Assemble which featured artists exploring painting, print-making, mixed-media, sculpture and assembled materials.  Chicago artists such as Vincent Grech, Chris Silva, Lauren Feece and Tom Buban exhibited next to Brazilian artist Fernando Chamarelli, Miami artist Alex Yanes, San Francisco artist Jenny Robinson and New York artist Michael Rodriguez.

Located across the street from the Empty Bottle, Vertical Gallery is definitely a destination!

Assemble was on view at Vertical Gallery, 1016 N. Western Ave., through May 25. For more information visit their website here.
