It has been an action-packed week here in Chicago! My Dog Sighs has completed 4 walls, and now getting ready to hit the streets with paste-ups and free art. A very special thanks to everyone that has helped with the walls this week: Pawn Works, JC Rivera, Sentrock, Billy Craven, Galerie F, and Howard Natinsky. And thank you to everyone that has stopped by and photographed the locations: Danny Cantu, Tori Howard, and @drewinchicago. The opening is this Saturday, Sept 6, 6-10pm. The first 25 people get a free gift! Photo attached is from the final wall finished yesterday located on North Avenue on the side of Trencherman. Thanks to Danny Cantu for this great photo!

Vertical Gallery at SCOPE NY 2014

Posted on February 14, 2014 by Patrick Hull

Vertical Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in SCOPE New York, one of the top art fairs in the world, known for curating the most innovative contemporary art. Running March 6-9, 2014, SCOPE will present the highest level of gallery shows, collector tours and curated projects.

We will feature UK artist My Dog Sighs, Australian artist Stormie Mills, and New York artists Andrew Poneros, Justin Penov, and Tiptoe in booth E15. This will be the New York debut for My Dog Sighs and Stormie Mills. Both artists have huge international followings, and both will exhibit brand new work at the art fair.

My Dog Sighs has found himself strapped in to a well-deserved meteoric rise. With an incredible international following in Israel, Japan, and the UK, five sold out shows under his belt, and a strong following of staunchly loyal fans on social media; My Dog Sighs is fast becoming an important figure on the contemporary art scene.

Stormie Mills has an international following for his iconic character based work that has seen him travel, work and show in London, Tokyo, Athens, Miami, and throughout Australia in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Working in a restricted palette of black representing dirt, white the attempt to remove dirt, grey a metaphor for the cityscape and silver for dreams, this palette is an expression of the sense of isolation inherent in his work. Stormie’s work investigates humanity in his pursuit to understand what drives our deepest desires and emotions.

SCOPE Art Show returns to landmark venue, Skylight at Moynihan Station, for its 14th New York edition. Located within the iconic New York City Post Office, SCOPE will transform the Postal Dock with its 30-foot vaulted glass ceiling into a dynamic exhibition of 60 international galleries, representing the best and brightest contemporary work from emerging and mid-career artists.

The fair opens on Thursday, March 6, 3-6, with an exclusive Platinum VIP Gala, continuing with a First View benefit for VIPs and Press on March 6 from 6-9pm, and will be open to the general public March 7-9.

Please contact Patrick for a show preview.
