PONSHOP Studio and Gallery will be hosting the third annual "Remixed" Vinyl Album Art Show in August 2015. We’ve rescued stacks of old Christmas records, wiped the dust off and, with your help, will turn them into something that people actually enjoy– a fun work of art.
Spinning at 33 1/3 rpm
Here’s how the show works: once you pay the entry fee, we provide you with up to three ready-to-hang vinyl albums (the fee is $12 per record, or $30 for three). You have until July 31 to turn your album into a work of art, which will be exhibited throughout the month of August. The theme and medium are up to you, but there is one rule: each record is mounted on wood block with hanging wire and must stay mounted in order to be suitable for display on our gallery walls.
This exhibit is open to all artists (professional and emerging) in the Virginia/DC/Maryland Region.
All artists must use the pre-mounted vinyl albums (provided when you pay the entry fee) and all work must be for sale. Submit your best work! The gallery reserves the right to reject submissions based on quality: uniqueness and creativity, craftsmanship and execution. Entries must be original creations of the artist – no reproductions of others artwork. See examples of the pre-mounted albums below:
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.
Entry fee: $12 per vinyl album, or $30 for three (up to three submissions). Artists pay fee and retrieve ready-to-hang vinyl albums from PONSHOP. Please complete entry form when returning the work.
Delivery: Artists are responsible for transporting their work to and from the gallery. Please keep in mind that during the summer months, vinyl records will warp if stored in a parked automobile! Artwork not retrieved after show closing will incur a storage fee of $10 per day
