INTERSECTION: SPACE AND PLACE
The landscape painting of Kari CL Weber and the sculptural clay of Bill Gossman come together in a unique show at The Grand Hand Gallery. Weber’s paintings focus on landscape imagery, rural communities, the smallness of humanity and the vastness of the natural world. Inspiration for Gossman’s work comes from observations of nature and humans, the interaction between them and the results of the interactions. Together these two New London, Minnesota artists present an intersection of the observed and the imagined in our Midwestern landscape.
Friday, February 8 at 5-8pm Grand Hand Gallery, St. Paul, MN

A graduate of Minnesota State University Moorhead with a BFA in painting, she works from her studio in New London, Minnesota where she works as an art specialist and is a member of the board of directors for the local arts council. This year, Weber received an Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
For Gamut Gallery’s annual “C4W: Call 4 Work” exhibition, we welcome Joel Coleman as guest curator. 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.
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.
