About the Exhibition

EXHIBITION DETAILS: 

ABA is featuring original artwork created on actual 12" vinyl records. The theme of the work should focus on the musicians, songs, and/or themes related to the particular album the artist has selected. Previous years shows have been a huge success and more than half of the works sold opening night. Check out last years vinyl artworks.

 

We will again be releasing Spotify playlists related to the works and the artists who contribute to the show.

 

We are working an another small side show at a different location that select artists from the primary 12" show will be offered the opportunity to repeat the rules of the main show — but have to use a smaller 45 record instead. More details to come.

GENERAL GUIDELINES: 

If you are selected to participate, artwork will need to be shipped/hand delivered to the gallery. Selected artists will receive a detailed guidelines PDF, along with further information about the show and other details.

- Work must be received by the delivery cut-off date (see Important Dates below)

- Work must be for sale

- Work must be on a 12" vinyl record

- 1 vinyl record per artist, unless approved by the curator (i.e. double LP)

- Artists must adhere to the content zone rules contained in the guidelines PDF you will receive if accepted. This zone refers to the original center label of the album.

 

- The original center label on the album CAN NOT be altered/manipulated. Many vinyl buyers from early shows voiced how they were disappointed the original vintage labels had been painted over or defaced. Leave that portion vintage please. No exceptions.

- There is a $25 fee for the uniform frame all artists will use and a $5 fee toward online promotion — $30 total. All works will be mounted by the gallery on white matte board and put into our standard 12.5” x 12.5” black aluminum frame with glass. This allows us to uniformly hang the show on our main gallery wall and maintain a clean modern aesthetic.
