The artists showcased in Gamut Gallery's latest show, "The Lost Art," have something to say. For the group exhibition, 20 artists were invited to create pieces in response to something that has deep meaning to them. Running with the idea, folks birthed works expounding on incendiary topics such as racism, the food industry, and transgender rights. Participating talents include Erin Sayer, Amina Harper, Jesse Quam, and Ed Johnson. Scott Seekins, a notorious man about town (and lover of both black and white suits), has co-curated the happening. He will also be showing selections from his 1862 Uprising series, in which Seekins inserted images of himself into paintings depicting the dark moments of the historic event, including Native and settler suicide. Visitors to the gallery will also be able to peruse one of his white art binders, filled with pieces to be taken home or momentarily enjoyed. There will be an opening reception from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, March 29. Seekins will be displaying his artwork at the Lowry (2112 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis) this week as well, with a cocktail meet-and-greet on Thursday, and a lookalike contest (to be judged by the artist himself) on Saturday (both events happen from 5 to 9 p.m.).
