Not with GnuPG itself. The GnuPG project does not provide a keyserver
Most keyservers out there are powered by a software called SKS
(Synchronizing Key Server) [1,2].
For a local network, a LDAP-based keyserver may also be considered. The
GnuPG wiki has a page on how to setup such a server .
Finally, with GnuPG modern (>= 2.1) you may choose to setup a Web Key
Directory. This is a recently introduced approach to key distribution,
for which GnuPG provides some tools and documentation [4,5].
Hope that helps,
