In 2005 two artists, Robyn Stoller Awend and Camille J. Gage, began a conversation about the possibility of forming a new kind of gallery in Minneapolis. They invited some artists they knew to join the conversation, and they in turn invited some artists they knew. The group began meeting together at the home of Jil Evans and Charles Taliaferro. Three foundational concepts formed the structure of the new gallery. First, the members would have absolute control over the artistic program. Subsequently, the group formed a company for the purpose of running the gallery, and the artist members assumed their parallel roles as owners of the company. Second, the members would trust each other to make decisions that support the goals of artistic quality, experimentation and community-engagement. Third, the gallery would show members’ artworks and organize exhibitions with artists and curators from outside the gallery, thereby making a valued contribution to the Minnesota cultural landscape.
