Gamut Gallery ushers in the fall season with its annual C4W exhibition, this time with guest curator Tara LaPlante at the helm. LaPlante, founder of the multimedia events brand Futra and business manager for the motion graphics studio Immanent, has chosen a mix of styles and mediums to showcase. This year’s cohort of artists runs the gamut, working in political art, realism, abstraction, portraits, and surrealism. As in past C4W exhibitions, there’s no overall theme to the show. Instead, the curator chooses works that reflect their personal tastes and sensibilities. New this year are two Best in Show awards: one selected by the curator, and another to be chosen by folks who attend the opening night reception, which is this Thursday, October 25, from 7 to 11 p.m. Other events taking place at Gamut during the run of the show include the second annual members gala on November 10, and a screening of locally produced short films at the exhibit finale on November 17.
