    Some of the most dynamic art created today adorns one of the most delicate mediums—human skin. Gamut Gallery is creating space for these talented tattoo artists to feature their abilities using watercolor, acrylic & oil paints. Spit Shade 2: Babes, Beasts & Botanicals is our second official opening party for the Villain Arts Minneapolis Tattoo Convention. This ONE weekend only exhibition will include 50 local & national artists showcasing this vibrant artform.

    Minneapolis tattoo artists, Lindsee “Bee” Boyer and Jessi Lawson, act as this years curators. In the relatively brief time she’s been tattooing, Lindsee Boyer’s work has garnered worldwide attention from fans of the art form. Owner and founder of Bee Ink Tattoo, Boyer travels across the country to work on clients in some of the world’s most prestigious shops. Long time artist, Jessi Lawson, has shown her paintings in international galleries for the past two decades. In 2006, Lawson shifted her canvas of choice to skin and began tattooing professionally. Both curators find inspiration from nature and travel; it is visible in their complimentary styles and throughout the theme in this exhibition.
