"Remixed": Opening Reception, June 7 2013

Remixed_Opening26_web “Remixed” was PONSHOP’s fourth community art exhibition featuring original artwork using vinyl albums as a canvas. The exhibit included thirty-six local and regional artists all working in this non-traditional medium. Remixed runs through June 30, 2013.

Gallery owner Gabriel Pons has been using 12” vinyl records as his canvas for three years. When a friend offered him a crate of old records, he saw the potential of using the standardized discs in an art show where each participant “repurposes” the old albums and turns them into art.  A Call for artists was issued in April and interested artists from students to professionals registered and received their albums to adorn.  The opening reception included musical entertainment from DJ Climax, spinning on the turntables.  Thanks to all of our artists who participated for this exhibition and thanks to our fans and friends who came out to see the show.

Featured Artists for the “Remixed” Show are: Gregg Deal, Matt Corrado, Rob Landeck, Adam Desio, Stephen Graham, Jack Labadie, Julie Maida, Nick Candela, Crystal Rodrigue, Jeff Gulick and Nina Angelini.

Participating Artists include: Sue Henderson, Stacey Schultze, Sandy Skipper, Lois Skipper, Alex Rudenshiold, Guerin Wolf , Jayden Gilhousen, Zakk Davis, Amina Shafi, Nina Jot Prakashkaur, Cameron Limbrick, Toy Fowler, Ronald Jackson, Mirinda Reynolds, Erin Stephens, Sidney Mullis, Joshua K Rama, Mark Eyestone, Kelly Penick, Mark Manjarrez, Sean Woodard, Elizabeth Carter, Frank Woodley, Josie Yorgeson, Ed King, and Malik Malek.

"ReUsed/ReMixed" Painted Vinyl Album Workshop

Sunday April 29 kicked off the "ReUsed/ReMixed" Painted Vinyl Album Workshop at the G40 event space in Richmond, Virginia.  We had a great turnout of students who enthusiastically took on the challenge of creating their own design on an old 12" vinyl record.  PONSHOP co-owner, Gabriel Pons, walked the students from brainstorming ideas to applying their designs on the records using acrylic paint, paint pens, or spray paint and stencils.  Special thanks to Art Whino and RVA Magazine for organizing this year's G40 Summit and congratulations to all the people that came out to participate in this art workshop - good work!

Making It Final for the Vinyl: 12" LP Album Art

12" vinyl album stencil series by Gabriel Pons ($50-$85)

About two months ago, a friend gave me a crate of old records with the thought that I might be able to make some use of them. Since then I've been creating new stencil sets and spraying them up on vinyl. For those of you cringing to see old records get defaced, believe me, the albums I have on hand I don't think anyone will miss.
