Gallery Au Go-Go opened on May 18 2002 during a time when the Vegas art scene, as we know it today, was in it‘s infancy. The gallery quickly made a big noise with themed group shows and sometimes controversial subject matter. I quickly learned running an art gallery is a labor of love and based on that it was a complete success, but from a business standpoint, not so much. I opened this venture blind and have always been humbled by the response and loyalty from all the artists and public who walked through my doors. I thank you all, as well as the always supportive local press, your write-ups truly helped build this place.
It is now time to do other things. I’m writing a book called Boredom Was the Reason and starting a production company that will produce it and many other exciting offerings. I can never fully express my gratitude for all the support and accolades these past 4 years. It is with a heavy heart and some regret I make this decision, but Gallery Au Go-Go has run its course. Now let’s burn this mutha down (figuratively of course).....Dirk Vermin
