  1. Art Is For Everyone

    Comments Off on Art Is For Everyone

    Art Is For Everyone – Gamut Gallery celebrates a decade of Art and Community in the Twin Cities. Our exhibit features artists Aldair Dosmil, Ash Hane, Barret Lee, Bunny Portia, James Zucco, John Foster, Kristi Abbott, Rodrigo Oñate, Lora Hlavsa, and Urban Camper.


    Gamut Gallery will be closed 6/1 – 6/5 for Independence Day.  You can shop our collections online while we’re away.

    Gamut Gallery has thoroughly enjoyed a decade of art, music, performance, and collaborations! From our first location in the Handicraft Building to our current home in Elliot Park, the relationship that continues to define our space is the one we share with you every day. As we look forward to another year together, we invite you to join us in celebrating ten years by attending our first summer exhibition of the year: Art is for Everyone!

    As the gallery evolves from one show to the next, the heart of Gamut’s mission remains the same: we believe that art fosters community, and everyone should have access to becoming a collector! In honor of our tenth anniversary, ten of our supporters, from dabblers to devotees, have graciously agreed to lend us one of the pieces that first caught their eyes and captured their hearts. The loaned work will be displayed in tandem with new, original pieces by the corresponding artists. Gamut is delighted to welcome back artists Ash Hane, Barret Lee, Bunny Portia, James Zucco, John Foster, Kristi Abbott, Rodrigo Oñate, Lora Hlavsa, Urban Camper, and 2Mil for this group exhibit. As a special compliment to the month-long retrospective display, portraits captured within the homes of the featured collectors will be on view along with a few words of their own stories that embody Gamut’s mission of bridging artists and their communities to life!

    “Come for the art and stay for the party!” We couldn’t kick off a show as big as this without you!  Join our space on opening night for food and festivities with live music and performances back-to-back.  We can’t wait to celebrate all of our collectors who have supported small businesses and working artists over the past ten years. Whether you have been with us from the very beginning or are among our newest friends, our story begins and ends with you!

    Featured Artist Bios:

    Aldair Dosmil is a Mexican street artist, born in Morelia, Michoacán. He has dedicated his work to the appropriation of urban spaces with murals since 2015. With a varied and eclectic style, he represents through Mexican folklore an iconic character of his work, a personal reinterpretation of the torito de petate dance, one of the most traditional emblems of Morelia.

    Ash Marlene Hane can be found wandering amongst the myths and the stars, greeting the spirits of the animate cosmos, and dancing amongst the northern forests. A student of  *the way of things* she is in tutelage with the Great Mystery and a devotee of the Jovian path. Her current body of work is an intuitive collaboration with Creator, inviting re-enchantment and magic into the eye and heart of the beholder. Ash studied Printmaking and Art history at the U of M and MCAD, co-owner of the former Midnight Brigade Gallery, and creator of TLA Press. Ash Marlene Hane has shown at numerous galleries and is the recipient of an MRAC Next Step Grant. Her practice centers around an ethic of experimentation and is in collaboration with the Nymphs and Muses of creation.

    Barret Lee is a Minnesota-based fine artist and illustrator with a BA in drawing and painting from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) in 2016. Barret is a multidisciplinary artist who works in a range of mediums. He paints a wide variety of subjects, including wide-eyed characters, playful landscapes, and pop culture. 

    As a representational feminist artist working in oils, encaustic, pencil, and video, Bunny Portia examines issues of aging, change, and traditional ideals of female beauty. Her work is based on personal experience and incorporates a retrospective view from her 70-year vantage point. Fifty years ago, Bunny Portia spent the summer of her sophomore year in college stuffed into an impossibly tight-fitting, padded costume, serving drinks and meals to customers who bought into the Playboy myth. Using that experience juxtaposed to her image today, she explores age bias and her experience growing old. Her large Memento Mori skeleton paintings made their debut at Gamut Gallery in 2017.

    James Zucco spent many years creating award-winning work as an art director in advertising.In 2015, he shifted his focus to fine art. His work resides in private collections around the world and was recently featured in New American Paintings. James has also created illustrations for clients including The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Mother Jones.

    Manipulating time and light, John Foster is creating works of art that evoke a visceral response. Through a radical synthesis of poetry and engineering, highly technical feats of geometry leave us with objects that do not appear to have passed through the artist’s hands. Foster draws on sacred geometry to provide the base parameters for an experience that grips viewers, drawing them into the moment with a kaleidoscopic play of color, texture, and rhythm. Colors dance and transform as the eye moves from one perspective to another, generating iridescent figures that metamorphize as viewers move around them.

    Kristi Abbott is an Australian multimedia collage artist. Kristi spent 8 years growing her art business in Minnesota, having her own gallery in downtown Minneapolis for 3 years. She has won several awards and public commissions and her work is collected across the US and Australia. As a collage artist Kristi is fascinated with the use of color, pattern, and texture. She combines these elements in her work in an innovative and exciting way using a combination of papers, paints, and other embellishment materials. Each piece and series is thoughtfully researched and conceptualized to tell a story through the use of familiar imagery richly layered throughout each artwork. She describes her amazing and innovative methods as “painting with paper”. After a year-long art residency in Texas, she has returned to Minnesota, where she looks forward to adding artworks to the previous series as well as creating completely new series and artworks inspired by her life and travels.  

    Lora Hlavsa is a self-described “professional dabbler”. Professionally, she solves creative problems as an art director and designer, but her personal fine art and illustration practice reveals an unconstrained world of color and energy. Inspired by femininity, pop culture, nature, and intersectionality, she uses color, pattern, chaos, and emotion to create multi-dimensional works that reflect the many (and often innocuous) layers of the daily human experience.

    The creation of characters and fantastic worlds is the universe that defines the work of Rodrigo Oñate (Rocodrilo). Originally from the city of Queretaro, Mexico, Roco embarked on his career as a self-taught plastic and graphic artist, influenced by the pop culture of the 80s, comics, graffiti, and various artists representing Mexican art. By extracting himself from his context and looking at it from the outside, he found a better appreciation and understanding of Latin American culture, thus conceiving a style with a contemporary and modern vision of Latino folklore, mixing techniques that since his career has gained great relevance as in graffiti or pop art.

    Urban Camper is a Minnesota-based photographer who primarily documents street art and graffiti. His focus is to give some permanence to a generally ephemeral art form. With the same sense of documenting a moment in time, Urban Camper journals life experiences with his camera.

  3. MASK: Exhibit Finale + Artist Talk

    Comments Off on MASK: Exhibit Finale + Artist Talk


    Join us for the exhibit finale of #MASK, a solo show of new works from Morgan Pease. An artist talk will begin at 6pm, moderated by close friend and fellow artist Russ White.

    The night will also feature a set from James Patrick, a sound artist who thrives on bringing together the creative energy and ideas of his community. Through collaboration and experimentation, he creates immersive environments that explore the evolving definitions of sound art. His record label and events are both heavily supported by some of the greatest names in electronic music, and his personal recordings continue to make waves in the international electronic music circuit.

    ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
    For his first solo show in Minneapolis, artist Morgan Pease debuts an exhibition of textured depth. A departure from his previous body of work which relied heavily on structure and solid rules, Pease’s current work explores the chaotic impulsivity of the masking technique. Dubbed Mask due to its dualistic meaning, this series explores a visual representation of human insecurities, examining the divisive masks we wear in day-to-day life and the vulnerability of peeling away layers to reveal what is truly underneath.

    EXHIBIT FINALE + ARTIST TALK
    Saturday, October 14th 5-11pm // $5
    7pm: Artist Talk with Morgan Pease moderated by Russ White, editor of Mplsart.com & a set from DJ James Patrick

    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 6th 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 day, which means five days, extra hours of epic rummaging and, of course, more time to enjoy the party. 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, photography, prints, collectibles, handmade apparel, jewelry, housewares, and more.

    The five-day-long event will see performances from DJs James Patrick, Modwell, Danny Sigelman, Juleana Enright, Bobby Kahn, Tony “Etones” Larson, Jesse Lingenfelter, and The Headspace Collective. 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.

    A Killer Affair: A Blacktie Evening

    Artists, musicians, creative makers – you know their art, you know their faces, you get lost in their music videos. But no good artist goes it alone; it takes a village of creative souls to birth a star. Like a gallery nurtures an artist they love, showcasing their work via exhibitions and project management, Polkadot Mayhem has been supporting local creatives since 2014 and Gamut Gallery since 2012. Yet often times the faces behind these businesses, get lost in the crowd. Tonight is a celebration of the talented minds who help launch the careers of the brilliant people they support and believe in.

    Polkadot Mayhem’s tag line is “We do cool things with creative people”, and their track record thus far certainly agrees. Assisting a long list of diverse artists with their musical releases and digital presence, Polkadot Mayhem has covered a lot of ground in a short period of time. Mark Mallman, BOTZY, KPT, Bae Tigre and VAYNS have all released projects through the collective, maintaining a relentless dedication to their mission statement. Meanwhile, Gamut Gallery has hosting more than 35 exhibitions and countless more creative events in their 4+ years of business, giving exposure to hundreds of local emerging and established artists in the Twin Cities, such as Kate Renee, Wundr, Rodrigo Oñate and Rogue Citizen.

    For this event, Polkadot teams up with the gallery for an evening to showcase their recent work and respective platforms for supporting local artists, makers and musicians. A Killer Affair represents an evening of live music, art and inspired conversation with some of the cities’ most innovative and active creative minds. Meet members of Gamut Gallery and Polkadot Mayhem and get the lowdown on highlighted projects, artist representation and their future plans to assist the scene in staying a unique and vibrant cultural hub.

His back catalog ranges from the Ska/Punk band Culture Cry Wolf, to the Indie/Electro-Pop project VAYNES, all the way to any one of his half dozen solo release projects since 2012. His latest release, “Gwen Stefani” energetically touches on 90’s nostalgia while playfully expressing his love for the lead singer of No Doubt.

    James Patrick is a musician and educator with nearly two decades experience DJing and promoting electronic music in Minneapolis and beyond. He is a sound artist driven to bridge people and ideas through music, and is a founding co-owner of Gamut Gallery.

    Comments Off on Grand Opening // Northern Spark

    Minneapolis, MN – May 9, 2012  –  Gamut Gallery announces its grand opening with a multimedia indoor/outdoor exhibit – “ARTifacts in the Gallery, Live CoLab in the Alley” – as part of the Northern Spark Festival June 9, 2012. The debut exhibit features new works by Brant Kingman and Silvia Yordanova, sculpture by Hannah Howard, projection mapping by Jim Weiss, motion graphics by Brad Nesseth, interactive Playatta, and live painting by James Khani, Schuyler Huber, Wade Timmreck, Matt Task Rock, and Peyton. Experimental electronic music will be curated by the Slam Academy.

    Gamut Gallery was founded by a group of people who met on the dance floor and formed a weekly art night in 2010 called Co Lab. Two years later, Gamut Gallery was conceived. More than a place to view art, it’s a place that emphasizes art as an interactive experience. The gallery will show diverse collections that run the gamut of mediums from artists that are local or visiting, well-known or up-and-coming, classic or subversive.
