Gallery Au Go-Go Returns

"After a much needed hiatus Gallery Au Go-Go is back in action!..."

That's the news coming from the Las Vegas Community's Journal, courtesy of Cydniey.

Which is great news. The gallery often has edgy shows that stray away from safe, abstract, contemporary works, loads of booze and free food, and the best mix of people of any gallery in town. It's nice to see them returning to the fray, and mixing it up in the local art scene.

"...The place is remodeled and if you've been there before you won't recognize the joint, if you haven't, come see why we were voted "Best Art Gallery " in the Review Journal's Readers Poll 2003. The Gallery has always pushed the envelope in unique and sometimes controversial shows as well as being one of the only venues for true "lowbrow" art and showcasing our city's incredible talent. I look forward to the next 6 months of events and thank all of you for your support in the past and future. Dirk Vermin
