 "The color vermilion is replete with associations to geology, culture and art history and has compelled me for years as only a color can compel an artist.”  Ellen Ziegler

Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar celebrates its 8th anniversary this June with an idea whose time has come: "Vermillion/Vermilion", a show of new work by Ellen Ziegler. The artist has worked exclusively with the color vermilion for the past three years. Ziegler's last body of work was featured in a solo show called “Vermilion”, at LxWxH Gallery, Georgetown, although many people showed up initially at Vermillion (the bar, two L’s.)

Vermillion has been a generous supporter and promoter of the arts since it was started by Diana Adams in 2008. In addition to over 80 gallery shows, the venue has hosted poetry and book readings, interactive and site-specific performances, hip-hop cypher battles, music producer showcases and demonstrations, the Big Dig Record Show, pop-up art bazaars and John Boylan’s inimitable Conversation Series.

Join us in celebrating Vermillion’s 8th anniversary and Ellen Ziegler’s new work. The show will also include historic tidbits of knowledge about vermilion (the color, one L).
