FSTVL SZN with TheSuperManiak at the Nuvango Gallery
Remember that amazing feeling standing front-row for your fav band? Dancing and singing along to the chorus, hands up, eyes wide open, soaking in the energy of everyone in the crowd who is there for the same reason you are - for the love of music. It doesn't matter if you love winding to reggae, line dancing to country, moshing to pop-punk or throwing your hands in the air when that beat drops - music brings us together, and no one has seen this magic more than Maria Jose Govea aka TheSuperManiak

Gallery goers who joined us for FSTVL SZN were able to explore the vibrant music scene through TheSuperManiak's lens. Re-live the opening party here and visit TheSuperManiak's work here.

INSTANT Possible Project at Nuvango Gallery

Gallery goers had the opportunity to learn hands-on about the legacy of instant photography - Nuvango created an on-going community Polaroid wall using The Impossible Project’s instant cameras and film & asked gallery visitors to be a part of it. As the last producers of instant film in the world, this was an exciting and unique opportunity to get up close & intimate with Impossible’s brand new I-1 camera and have your portrait added to the cumulative exhibition. Instant also explored the narrative and nostalgic nature of Polaroids with an installation by The Found Polaroid Project, including an opportunity for gallery visitors to submit their own story about a found Polaroid chosen from our Found Polaroid wall. During this exhibition we also ran numerous FREE  workshops, Impossible Project launched their NEW camera with us (you can still purchase Impossible Project Polaroid Cameras onsite (while supplies last)), and Kyler from the Found Polaroid Project ran two separate workshops ( & The exhibit ended with a closing party so gallery goers could see the final result of the community wall It's always sad to see an exhibit go, but we can't wait to show you what we can coming up next.

Nuvango Gallery In Our Veins Jason Edmiston Alex Pardee Camilla Derrico Colin Christian Sarah Joncas

Nuvango Gallery collaborated with curator Jason Edmiston present our exhibition, In Our Veins.

Feb. 11 - Mar. 11

In Our Veins was a collaborative installation and group exhibition which highlights the pop-cultural and pop-art influences of 19 artists from across North America. Nuvango Gallery converted into an intimate and curious space reflecting the home or studio of these artists most devoted collector, a character who seems to be stuck between a few decades of pop culture’s past. Moody decor, kitsch accents and nostalgic items brought visitors to the past, while viewing contemporary representations of this cult aesthetic. In Our Veins was designed to highlight the different channels each of these artists have taken, though they have stemmed from similar cultural roots. From tiki to horror, vinyl to antiques, the gallery became home to several different disciplines and styles  - showcasing the artist’s very first influences and their latest adaptations.
