  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!

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.

    Comments Off on Seeing Voices: Artist Talk & Exhibit Finale

    As a culmination of her solo exhibit #SeeingVoices, join us for an artist talk with Jane Wunrow in conversation with Gamut Gallery Assistant Allie Mickle for a discussion of her work. The artist will provide context for her seemingly abstract compositions, going into further detail about her artistic inspirations, her life as an artist, and her intricate processes.

    Later that evening, help us celebrate #SeeingVoices one final time with an exhibit finale 7-10pm featuring a DJ set from Gerardo Morado, known under the moniker 88project. Primarily exploring house music sets, 88project has always had a big love for music since his early years and was always driven by underground experimentations, an idea that can into fruition with he discovered electronic music. At age 17 he began to experiment with the art of mixing and soon began to make a name for himself playing in major clubs and cities in the northern Mexican and Midwest regions.

    With her first solo show, Jane Wunrow presents works that are directly influenced by specific dreams or migraine aura she experiences, particularly those that surface subconscious fears, pains, or perceptions. While creating, Wunrow puts herself back into that mental headspace and taps into the emotions that she felt in that dream state, imbuing her works with raw feeling. “Seeing Voices” places Wunrow’s dreams and visual perceptions into the physical realm.
