C4W:2024 Submissions

Submissions are now open for 2024!

Are you an artist? Would you like an opportunity to show your work with us at Gamut Gallery? 

We are accepting submissions for our annual Call for Work Exhibition “C4W:2024”, featuring Brant Kingman our guest curator. Artists of all levels are encouraged to submit now thru Tuesday, May 28th 2024. Submissions will be considered for Gamut’s Summer C4W Exhibition and featured in the online shop as well. All media is accepted, including video, installation art, sculpture, experimental technology, photography, fiber, drawing, painting, collage, and performance art.

The beauty of C4W is that there’s no predetermined theme. It’s a wild slice of the recent works created by local and national artists. The theme emerges through the nature of the submissions and through the lens of the guest curator. 

There are two chances to win “Best in Show”. One award winner will be selected by the guest curator and the other by opening night attendees. Both winners will be awarded $100 cash and Platinum Memberships to Gamut Gallery ($400 value). Gamut Gallery will also be considering the submissions for future group shows, solo shows, features on our social media, and new artists to add to our Online Gift Shop & House Collection. About 75% of the artists we have shown at Gamut Gallery are discovered through the open call process.

Sponsorship for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color
Gamut Gallery acknowledges the impacts of systemic racism, including in the art world. In the ongoing effort towards fair and equitable programming, Gamut Gallery waives the submission fee for 50 BIPOC Artists applying to our annual Call for Work Exhibition, “C4W:2024.”  The first 50 BIPOC artists that submit their work(s) are eligible for sponsorship.

We wish everyone luck and encourage everyone to believe in the PROCESS!!

Minneapolis artist Brant Kingman trained himself by studying masterworks in the great museums of Europe following graduation from Amherst College in 1976. After returning from abroad, he lived in New York City for seven years booking 62 shows in art venues such as the prestigious PS1 run by MOMA.  Kingman was shot in the chest in 1982. He returned to his hometown of Minneapolis where he maintains a studio in which he paints and creates bronze sculptures for galleries across the United States and in 10 foreign countries. His most recent major exhibits include a show at the Vietnam National Museum of Art in Hanoi and, through April 2018, paintings at MoMA in NYC.

Years of exhibiting objects convinced Kingman that object making is but part of the artistic process that fits into the larger envelope of experience design. The artist now considers his primary role that of creating healthy, creative communities.
