PONSHOP Studio is pleased to announce our tenth community art exhibition in August of 2017.  We’ve rescued stacks of old 12” vinyl records, wiped the dust off and, with your help, will turn them into something that people will continue to enjoy—a fun and original work of art. “Remixed 5” is the fifth annual vinyl album art show at PONSHOP. All ages and skill levels are invited to participate. We encourage all participating artists to join us for the opening reception on August 4.

Submission Requirements: All artists must use the pre-mounted vinyl albums that we provide and all work must be for sale. Submit your best work! The gallery reserves the right to reject artwork based on quality: uniqueness and creativity, craftsmanship, and execution. Entries must be original creations of the artist – no reproductions of others artwork.

Entry Conditions: All artwork must be for sale. Artwork cannot have a retail price exceeding $150. PONSHOP retains 40% of all sales on works exhibited throughout the duration of the exhibit. Artists will be reimbursed within 30 days of the exhibition closing.

Artists are responsible for acquiring insurance on their own artwork. Although PONSHOP will take great care in the hanging and display of artwork, the gallery will not be held responsible for items on exhibit.

Artwork delivered after Sunday, July 30 will NOT be accepted. Artwork delivered that is not dry, of poor assembly, is incomplete, or exceeds the boundaries of the vinyl record (see diagram below) will NOT be accepted.

Entry Procedure: There’s an entry fee of $15 per vinyl album, or $40 for three albums with a limit of three submissions per artist. Artists must pay the entry fee at our storefront and receive ready-to-hang records at PONSHOP at time of purchase. The gallery will not ship records to prospective artists.

Delivery: Artists are to complete the Entry Form and return it with artwork by Sunday, July 30. Artwork must have entry tabs securely taped to the back of the corresponding record. Artists are responsible for transporting their work to and from the gallery.

PONSHOP is a multifaceted storefront: an artist studio, gallery, retail store, and classroom.  The vision of the owners, Scarlett and Gabriel Pons, is to provide a place that embodies what they love: art, design, and creative education.  The gallery/shop features a variety of work from artists both near and far.  Their studio also doubles as a classroom, providing workshops for students interested in everything from painting, ceramics, and architecture to street art and skateboarding.
