    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 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. We’ve hand-selected the 50 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, photos, prints, collectibles, handmade apparel, jewelry, housewares, and more.

    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.

  2. C4W:2017 Exhibition Finale

    Comments Off on C4W:2017 Exhibition Finale


    As in past years, the call for art is open to all visual media. The selected works for C4W: 2017 reflect that inclusive approach and include video, installation, sculpture, photography, fiber, drawing, and painting. While there is no predetermined theme in the submission guidelines, the guest curator brings their own unique perspective and interpretation to the submitted works. This personalized stamp brings forward an underlying style that visually and conceptually connects the works in the exhibition. Coleman’s curatorial aesthetic has developed a show of bold colorful creation, favoring strong linework and figurative representation.

     

    C4W: 2017 includes both artists familiar to Gamut as well as many newcomers, creating a diverse group of eclectic styles. A notable difference for this year’s exhibit is the quantity included; Coleman wanted to include as much artwork as possible, selecting a total of 64 works. Of the 48 featured artists, only 13 have previously shown at Gamut, leaving roughly 70% of the exhibiting artists new to the gallery. CL Martin, Christopher Palbicki, Benjamin Sagmoe, Natalia Berglund, Shye, Christopher Sorenson, and Russ White are among the familiar names. Exciting newcomers include Scott Roper, whose surreal acrylic paintings are so expertly done they appear computer generated at first glance; Jeremy Jones, creating large-scale sculptures that reference domestic life as a father; and Jennifer Chilstrom, co-owner of local boutique Showroom and fashion brand Kindred Folk.

     

    Featured Artists: Andy Baird, Natalia Berglund, Laurie Borggreve, Nelson Cain, Pat Callahan, Thomas Cassidy, Jennifer Chilstrom, Kat Corrigan, Lance Delao, Jacob Docksey, Addie Elling, Abigail Engle, Cory Favre, Jim “Marion” Foreman, Dianne Ginsberg, Joli Grostephan-Brancato, Jeffrey Hansen, Melissa Haroza, Angel Hawari, Trista Hendrickson, Genevieve Hess, Van Holmgren, Mathias Hughey, Jeremy Jones, James Kloiber, Nicholas Knutson, Femke Kuiling, Samuel Larom, Caterina Marchionne, CL Martin, Renee Michele, Polly Norman, Angela North, Edie Overturf, Christopher Palbicki, Scott Roper, Benjamin Sagmoe, Kurt Schulz, Shye, Christopher Sorenson, Ellen Sweetman, Kao Lee Thao, Brooklynd Turner, Ross Wagner, Kari Weber, Russ White, Roger Williamson, James Zucco

    About the Curator: Joel Coleman has been immersed in the local art scene with his tenure as the proprietor and curator of The Abstracted Art Gallery (2012-2014), and was familiar with the vast majority of local submissions. Currently, Coleman serves as a Made Here Arts Advisory Panel member, involved in the curation and installation of artwork in vacant downtown Minneapolis storefronts in partnership with the Hennepin Theater Trust.

    EXHIBIT FINALE
