  1. Cheers to 11 Years!

    Comments Off on Cheers to 11 Years!

    After 11 years we can’t wait to celebrate the amazing community that defines this place we call Gamut Gallery! It wouldn’t be a summer party without live painting and music in the courtyard, this year we will be featuring Yuya Negishi PLUS, there will be ten-minute portrait sessions made available by Daughters and Suns. We are welcoming some of our favorite Twin Cities house DJs; Mama Sauce, MPLS HOUSE, Jake Encinas & GirlE to create the celebration buzz!

    Setting the scene for our celebration is Kaleidoskull’s latest series of works featured in the Exoskeleton exhibit. Originally introduced at the Sound of Art Exhibition in New York over 15 years ago, Monty Montgomery & Tony Philippou merged their unique artistic styles into Kaleidoskull, blending figurative realism and abstract geometry. Each figure in their paintings and drawings is combined with an insect as a form of armor and anonymity. Monty and Tony have connected with the Twin Cities community through their world of imagination, inspiring the audience to feel empowered and engaged with the world they have created.

    There’s no place quite like Gamut Gallery, where people “come for the art, and stay for the party.” For more than a decade, Gamut has had the support of an engaging community, establishing a place where art, music, performance, and collaboration are all connected. We have made a name for ourselves in the Twin Cities art scene as an accessible gallery, showing affordable artwork with a welcoming attitude. We remain as dedicated as we were on Day One to continuing our tradition of serving as a cultural and social hub, focused on programming that engages and immerses our audience. Showing the work of over 930 local, national, and international artists, hosted over 270 exhibits and creative social events, and gained the support of over 280 members!

    Featured Artists
    Tony Philippou was born in The Bronx, NY and attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. He currently lives and teaches in Orlando, Florida. He has been a Fine-Artist for over 20 years, but originally started out as a freelance illustrator and designer in NY, Tony blended his communication and design skill set with his love for Painting. Tony explores themes of urban decay, fashion, societal trends, and contemporary subjects with aesthetic techniques inspired by Renaissance portraiture, Graffiti, and Fantasy Illustration.

    Monty Montgomery was born and raised in Virginia and earned his BFA from Longwood University in 1998. He currently lives in San Diego, Ca. Monty began exhibiting his work professionally in 2002. In 2008 Montgomery launched the next chapter of his career by moving to a new studio in San Diego, CA. In recent years he has begun focusing on collaborative projects with other artists that play with the juxtaposition of disparate styles with the goal of stretching the boundaries of what each artist does individually. The first in 2012 was the “Kreashun Project” with J Feather and in 2016 he launched the “Kaleidoskull Project” with Tony Philippou. Both of these ongoing collaborations continue to evolve as does his personal work, each feeding off the other.

    Yuya Negishi is an artist from Japan. Currently living in Minneapolis MN he is mural-ing the cityscape with Yuyart! A fun combination of SUMI painting, calligraphy, and other classical Japanese mediums and motifs; his work is an expression of cultural heritage, wonder, and amusement.

    Lisa Luck aka Daughter and Suns is a contemporary fine artist, illustrator and designer specializing in hand-drawn illustration graphics. She does personal commissions for her clients that capture an essence only she can see.
