About the Exhibition

EXHIBITION DETAILS: 

Arches Brewing 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. Last years show was a huge success and more than half of the works sold opening night. Check out last years vinyl artworks.

 

A small zine will also be released at the midpoint of the exhibition, featuring artwork and content from the show. We will again be releasing Spotify playlists related to the works and the artists who contribute to the show. Other details to come.

GENERAL GUIDELINES: 

This is not a digital exhibition, 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 zine.

- 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 (in guidelines PDF)

 

- The original center label on the album CAN NOT be altered/manipulated. Many vinyl buyers from last years show 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 framing. All works will be mounted on white matte board and put into a uniform 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. No exceptions.
