I have decided to participate in the “Art on Record exhibition, Vol. 2” at the APW Gallery in New York. The show will feature the walls of the gallery covered in artwork, all created on old albums. I did a series of art on albums a few years ago and had a lot of fun with it. Here are a couple samples:
This sounded like a fun project to work on and I still had several blank albums so I am set to go. Plus it ties in with other “recycled” art projects I am working/planning on! The show runs from May 1st to May 25th, 2009.
I will probably take the blank records with me to Colorado and create the art there then ship them directly to the gallery in New York. A few less pieces of art I’ll have to transport back home when I finished with my stay! I am a bit torn about creating art while I am there. Right now I am feeling the urge to work LARGE and create some big, beautiful pieces of work but getting the supplies and finished work back & forth is quite a challenge and smaller pieces would be more managable (and less expensive) to transport. I guess I will have to determine how important BIG is to me now! A compromise may be to get the smaller individual elements created for the larger pieces then wait until I am back home to actually assemble them. So much to think about…
