Verge is Growing!

Verge Center for the Arts is pleased to announce that we are embarking on an exciting construction project that will expand our program spaces and enable us to offer even more to our creative community!

Over the next several months, we will be increasing our education facilities to include a dedicated wheels room and updated ceramic resources, as well as building a new room to permanently house our Risograph printer which will make for easier access. Additionally, we will be building five brand new artist studios, allowing us to build upon our mission to support local career and emerging artists. We will also be installing hydration stations throughout the building, providing top-quality drinking water for all our staff, artists, instructors, students, patrons and visitors.

These incredible improvements would not be possible without grant funding from the California Natural Resources Agency, which Verge was awarded in 2023. We have spent months drafting and submitting plans and are so excited to finally have construction starting! We are so grateful to the CNRA for their support and for enabling us to grow into a bigger, better resource for our community.

Please note that our gallery will be closed during construction

but you can still enjoy weekly Clay Lab and Figure Drawing, join us for a summer class or workshop, shop the Verge store, or check out monthly rotating shows at Axis Gallery! We look forward to seeing you all, and to showing you our new and improved facilities in just a few short months!

Another project funded by the Specified General Fund for the Museum Grant Program under the California Cultural & Historical Endowment; Gavin Newsom, California Governor, and Wade Crowfoot, Secretary for Natural Resources.
