About Verge Center for the Arts
Verge opened in 2009 as a private art gallery owned by Jesse Powell. It was hailed for its upscale approach to contemporary art, often compared with New York's finest galleries. It was considered a leader in the Sacramento arts scene with national recognition. As Powell's vision for the gallery expanded beyond the ability of the space, he gathered leaders from the community to help him build something even more exceptional.
In 2010 VCA relocated to a 22,000 square foot warehouse in the heart of downtown Sacramento. Recognizing Sacramento's desire for a thriving contemporary arts center, Powell led the formation of a new, nonprofit venture that will house artist studios on site, provide expansive gallery space, feature community education, and provide a one-of-a-kind printmaking lab.
