Raging Art On 2018

Raging Art On is a cash-and-carry holiday sale with loads of local art for you to stop, stare, and sift through. The featured art is “uncurated,” meaning the 50 chosen artists (including stand outs Russ White and Hilary Greenstein) hold all the power in their hands. They choose what to bring, how much, and where to hang it. The result? A floor-to-ceiling collection of paintings, prints, handmade apparel, housewares, and more. Thursday through Saturday, 1-7 p.m. @ Gamut Gallery, 717 10th St. S., Minneapolis,
