Dorothy Tanner's luminous sculptures light up the night at Vertigo

It was third Friday-time again last night, and at Vertigo Art Space, that means artist reception time. Though not as crazy as the first Friday gallery openings on Sante Fe, third Friday receptions often provide a more intimate and focused evening for art fans. Last night, Dorothy Tanner hosted her solo show,

The Light Fantastic

from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 960 Santa Fe Drive. Tanner's free-standing sculptures and wall hangings use acrylic and LED lights as main ingredients to create luminous experiences for the viewer. Of her work she says, "I create environments that make people high, which I like since getting high has been one of my principle occupations in life." Of course, she's right at home here in the

Mile High City

. Tanner recommends viewing the artworks in the evening so as to "experience the effect of light on the walls, people and the total space."

The show will be on view through November 13th, and if you didn't get a chance to make it out last night to say hi, make sure you at least cruise down Sante Fe drive, between 9th and 10th avenues one of these evening soon to catch a glimpse of the glowing sculptures through Vertigo's large front windows. It will be a sight to see.
