Finding The Found Polaroid Project


Nuvango Gallery intern Deanna Manolakos shares a few words on the Found Polaroid Project - Part of our INSTANT exhibition running until July 3.  Interning at Nuvango Gallery is pretty sweet but the sweetest part is the constant exposure to creative minds like Kyler Zeleny’s “Found Polaroid Project.” Zeleny bridges the gap between known and unknown worlds through relatable imagery merged with our own fantasies.

Mission Impossible


Inspired by our latest exhibition INSTANT we asked two of our gallery interns share a few words.

Nuvango Gallery is excited to present a collaborative exhibit with this fascinating company, and...

Artist Interview: Photographer Jake Sherman


Jake Sherman’s I’m New Here exhibit held court at the Nuvango Gallery for the month of May and we caught up with the artist before the exhibit ended to get to know the man behind the camera. Even though the exhibition is gone, you can still view and purchase Jake's photographs and print packs online here and get to know him through our end of show interview.  Nuvango: Do you remember the first photo you took that really struck you? One that confirmed your suspicion that photography was a medium you wanted to work in? Jake Sherman: Hmmm, good question. I’ve been taking photos quite a while and it’s hard to pinpoint one specific photo that set it all into motion for me....
