Gamut Gallery won’t have to go far once it leaves Downtown West’s historic Handicraft Guild Building.
Founder Jade Patrick will be relocating the art gallery six blocks away in Elliot Park later this year after development plans surfaced for a high-rise project that included demolishing the gallery’s home.
A developer is planning to build a 20-story apartment tower in place of a non-historically designated 1914 addition to the Handicraft Guild Building. Jade and her husband James Patrick run Gamut Gallery and Slam Academy, an electronic music school, in a space in the building.
Jade will be moving the gallery to a slightly larger space in a mostly vacant building at 717 10th St. S. where she hopes to see more arts and culture-related businesses in the future. She made the announcement on Facebook Aug. 19.
Gamut will host an Oct. 1 open house during a downtown Minneapolis art gallery crawl, which Jade plans. The gallery will see a grand reopening on Saturday, Oct. 24 with its first exhibition, a solo show with contemporary figurative artist J. M. Culver.
Around the same time, James, an artist and instructor at Slam Academy, will be reopening the school in Logan Park’s Waterbury Building at 1121 Jackson St. in in October.
Before Jade relocates from the historic building, she will be throwing a going-away fundraiser on Sept. 19 with music, an alleyway exhibition, a raffle and a dunk tank.
