  1. Raging Art On

    Comments Off on Raging Art On



    A holiday sale in a gallery setting, Gamut Gallery provides a fun-filled, consumer conscious alternative to chain stores and mass mall shopping with the 5th annual shopping event, Raging Art On. Described as an “art-happening meets holiday-party meets pop-up boutique,” an “uncurated” art experience awaits the adventurous shopper on the hunt for the perfect gift for the artist, musician, writer or other creative maker on their holiday season shopping list. This year, Gamut has extended the annual sale to include an additional two days, which means extra hours of epic rummaging and, of course, more time to enjoy the party. We’ve hand-selected the 30+ local artists involved, but they decide what to show and where to show it. What results is a gallery packed from floor to ceiling with paintings, photography, prints, collectibles, handmade apparel, jewelry, housewares, and more.

    Sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon and hosted at our new location in Elliot Park, the four-day-long event will see performances from DJs Just Nine, James Patrick, Aaron Brooks, Ken Hannigan and Juleana Enright, plus fire spinning in our courtyard by Lotus Fire (weather permitting), refreshments, and additional pop-up surprises. Come for the art; stay for the party.

    Raging Art On reflects Gamut Gallery’s ethos of community, collaboration, the art of the happening and eco-consciousness. Gifts for sale at this event are handmade locally and are in harmony with the values of those concerned by mainstream holiday effects on our environment and our world — landfills, factory and shipping-caused pollution, issues of outsourcing and fair trade, consumer culture, etc. Raging Art On offers a place to join like-minded people together through art, music, performance and conversation.

    Featured Artists: Amanda Weber, Benjamin Wuest, Bethany Birnie, Biafra Inc., Boxy Mouse, Brookita Corazón, Cassie Garner, Chromanttica, Fabrik Marge, Inna Royzenfeld, Jacob Eidem, James Kloiber, Jennifer Hunt, Jesse Golfis, Jodi Bee, Josh Mckeown, Kate Renee, Ryan Popihn, Lizardman, Lucas Gluesenkamp, Matthew Huck, Micah S.

    MINNEAPOLIS–Friday, May 23, 2014, doors at 7:30 p.m., party 8 p.m. – 1 a.m., THEESatisfaction, brilyahnt peace & Purple Hocus Pocus present Black Weirdo: The Party, a national touring celebration of Black Queers and People of Color allies at Gamut Gallery. The shared goal is to create an energizing, unifying and healing home space for Black queers and People of Color from all backgrounds, identities and experiences while being exposed to new ideas, faces and lifestyles. Guests will groove to energetic, intimate performances & DJ sets by Sarah White, Sweetz P, Mamadu (don’t call him Toki Wright), DJ Just Nine, Sassyblack, and Stas Thee Boss. The evening will be hosted by THEESatisfaction, who will also DJ and perform.

    brilyahnt peace and Purple Hocus Pocus are defining what Black Weirdo means to the Twin Cities. Of this event they say: “We’re dedicated to building a party space where we can just be who we’ve always wanted to be. This night, with Black Weirdo, we’re going to resist by dancing and celebrating our lives. This night, we demand to be seen, heard and loved.” Black Weirdo: The Party is both a party and a community. This inclusive evening will offer an atmosphere where Blackness can be wild, unrestricted and unafraid—be healed, be happy, be laid-back, be conscious, be hood—all at once.

    Refreshments will be served, donations requested. Tickets for this 18+ party are $12 and are available in advance at www.eventbrite.com/o/black-weirdo-4302793181—or at the door on the day of the event for $15.

The Minneapolis edition of Black Weirdo: The Party is sponsored by Voices Merging and Women’s Student Activist Collective (WSAC).
