10th Anniversary Group Exhibition
VERVE Gallery of Photography

VERVE Gallery of Photography is pleased to present a group exhibition, Figures Studied, showcasing the works of VERVE gallery artists. In the fall of 2012 our gallery artists, many of whom have been with us for a decade, were invited to submit work for VERVE’s 10th anniversary exhibition. We titled the exhibition Figures Studied. Our artists were invited to interpret the show’s title as they wished. They were not given any additional instructions. Throughout this last month we have opened their submissions with great excitement and joy. The work in this exhibition is as creative and as varied as are our artists.
VERVE Gallery of Photography is located in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico just two blocks north east of the Main Plaza at 219 East Marcy Street. VERVE is housed in an early 20th century freestanding cottage extensively renovated so as to show off the foremost in contemporary fine art photography. The gallery spaces include a large main exhibition hall which houses the current exhibition and a smaller gallery room dedicated to showing complementary selected works by VERVE's artists.
VERVE, established in 2003, has a well earned reputation of being the leading purveyor of every genre of contemporary fine art photography. Verve’s artists are worldwide and so are VERVE’S patrons. All of VERVE’S artists are at work creating in documentary, figure studies, still life, landscape, conceptual, experimental, photomontage, and alternative process photography. VERVE has developed an innovative and unique concept for exhibiting fine art photography. A state of the art computer system enables visitors to browse each artist's portfolio online. Patrons can also peruse VERVE's entire inventory of artist portfolios on a large LCD monitor in the gallery. This concept benefits and serves patrons, artists and the gallery. Patrons are able to view an entire body of work and inspect work in inventory comfortably and effortlessly, while artists are not required to consign an entire body of work to the gallery. VERVE is able to provide access to entire portfolios online on the Internet. The portfolios are stored electronically in VERVE's database, thereby allowing the gallery to utilize its gallery spaces more efficiently.
