PONSHOP Studio and Gallery is pleased to announce their tenth community art exhibition in August of 2017. “Remixed 5” features original artwork using 12” vinyl record albums. The exhibit includes over fifty participating artists work on this unconventional canvas. The opening reception for “Remixed 5” will be Friday, August 4 (6-9pm).
This is the fifth year of the “Remixed” vinyl-themed show and PONSHOP has received an overwhelming response from local artists. As of this press release, the gallery has issued over seventy albums to be adorned by over thirty-five artists. This community art show has proven to be a great addition to the gallery’s exhibition schedule, involving artists of all backgrounds and also boasting affordable artworks for the home or office ranging from $25-$150. “Remixed 5” will be curated by gallery owners Scarlett and Gabriel Pons.
The First Friday Reception will include “Vintage DJ” services by Raven Hi-Fi, spinning tunes using a classic turntable setup. PONSHOP’s garden space will boast an outdoor pop-up Listening Booth by The Record Mann Archive. All are invited to celebrate in the art of vinyl.
Featured artists include Jenna Andersen (Williamsburg, VA), Anna Martin, James Walker (Leesburg, VA), Samantha Brodek (Richmond, VA), Maddie Huddle (Fredericksburg, VA), and Martin Reamy (Richmond, VA).
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.
