the vigil center for the arts & altered egos art house


Professionally trained in Photography, Painting, and Fine Art Gallery Management & Business Management Vihil created a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing creative community spaces where artists and appreciators of art co-exist and thrive off of one another's innovations.

The Vigil Center for the Arts developed out of the need to create an umbrella over the many projects growing from Vihil Vigil Studios such as the Voices Projects, Business for Artists workshops and in particular Altered Egos Art House at Sacramento's Second Saturday Midtown Art Walks.

The Art House is a fine art gallery exhibiting space and a working studio for writers, painters, photographers, graphic designers, sculptors, and brain stormers. It is a haven for the art lover and the people watcher. It is an educational facility for both adults and growing children to explore their artistic sides and benefit from presentations by working artists. Altered Egos Art House is a meeting place for all those interested in the arts and in its beginnings, history and its future.

Future Plans - Through rotating Second Saturday art exhibition commissions, sales from The Voices Project Anthologies, Community & Art Program development grants and through your generous donations we hope to open our very own space by 2019.  


Altered Egos Art House has found temporary sanctuary within the Sacramento LGBT Community Center at 1927 L Street, Sacramento, California and can be experienced every Second Saturday from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM! 


Visit Altered Egos Art House on Facebook for monthly events Here!
