Vernon’s Gallery Vertigo is presenting its annual SD22 High School Exhibition.

This year the theme is “Funktionality,” an exploration of art that spans from funk, funky to functional and beyond.

“Every year the high schools put on an incredible show for us, and we expect this one will be equally as fantastic,” said Vertigo’s executive director Trista Bassett.

The exhibition can be viewed as of Saturday, Jan. 9 and will run until Feb. 6.

An opening reception will take place on Thursday, Jan. 14 from 7 to 9 p.m.
