Artist’s Exhibition/Auction Opportunity in Celebration of Record Store Day, Saturday, April 16, 2011:
In 1938, Columbia records hired Alex Steinweiss as its first art director and the concept of covers and cover art was born. In 1948, 10” and 12” LPs first appeared and box sets of 45 rpms soon followed. With these formats came a commitment to original album cover design as both a marketing tool and as a means for artists ...to further communicate the album’s intent. The development of album art, gatefold covers, inserts, lyric sheets, etc., soon made album covers a collectable commodity in their own right. Notable covers include Andy Warhol’s banana cover for “The Velvet Underground & Nico,” The Rolling Stones’ “Exile On Main Street” which had a gatefold cover and included 12 perforated postcards, and Robert Mapplethorpe’s photograph of Patti Smith on the cover of “Horses.”
Now it’s your turn to revive the 12” LP cover format which reigned from the 50s through to the mid-80s. Design an alternative cover for an existing album or devise a cover for an artist/group of your own creation. All submissions should be approximately 12.375”x 12.375”. Include your name, phone number and/or email address, and medium when you submit the work.
HERE’S THE KICKER: The works will be auctioned off at a SPIN Party with ALL proceeds going to the artists!!!
So, please include a minimum bid when you drop off your work.
Exhibition venues: Blueprint Entertainment (519 - 4 Avenue South) and Owl Acoustic Lounge (411 - 3 Avenue South).
March workshop TBA.
Drop off submissions at the Bowman Art Centre on or before Saturday, April 2, 2011.
Bowman Art Centre, 811 – 5 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 0V2.
