Vertical Gallery is Chicago's premier urban-contemporary art gallery. Established in April 2013 in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood, the gallery focuses on work influenced by street art, urban environments, graffiti, pop culture, graphic design and illustration. Vertical Gallery has distinguished itself as a pioneer in its consistent programming of emerging and established local, national and international artists. The gallery has served as a catalyst for numerous artists who have moved on to exhibit at major art venues and museums worldwide.
You may view and purchase past and current work either in the gallery space or online. Vertical Gallery also consults on creating personal and corporate collections and selling secondary market artwork.
Their second gallery, Vertical Project Space, opened December 2020 at 2006 W. Chicago Avenue #1R.
The gallery is closed the week prior to each new exhibition.
