I intend to hold an Exhibition of Vinyl Art in the Spring of 2015. I don't have an exact date, but it will be around about Easter (end March/start April). I don't know exactly when, but I know where -- the Médiathèque in Sigean, France. I haven't written to the Mairie about this yet, but to get permission to use the Médiathèque should be a formality.
The Exhibition will be entitled something like 'Vinyl Art', and be by 'Mark Herman and Friends'. It will comprise about 60 pieces of Vinyl Art -- aproximately half by me, half by my Friends.
I herebye INVITE YOU TO BE ONE OF MY VINYL ART FRIENDS AND TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EXHIBITION.
This is what you must do:
* send me one or more pieces of Vinyl Art on 12 inch (33rpm) LP records, and ONLY on 12 inch LP records. This is the one and only size of the 'canvas'.
* you can place your art on the Vinyl (and even hang very small things off it), but 12 inches is the one and only format that will be accepted
* sleeve covers, 7 inch (45 rpms) and 10 inch records will NOT be accepted. Nor, of course, will CDS, DVDs or anything horrible like that.
* the records will be hung vertically. Anything that requires a horizontal or any other sort of display will be rejected
* the usual rules about content apply. I reserve the right to reject anything unsuitable on content, size or other grounds
* but, in principle, ALL 12 inch records sent to me will be included in the Exhibition. If I receive more than 30 pieces of Vinyl Art from you, my Friends, I may have to rotate the works during the Exhibition to ensure that everything is displayed. (If I receive significantly less than 30 pieces, then I'm going to be stuck!)
* no returns
* the receipt of each individual work will be acknowledged and a photo of it posted here by me (or the photo by you, if you prefer). Photos of the Exhibition will be posted later.
Your Vinyl Art should be sent to me at:
1 rue de la Vieille Fontaine,
THE DEADLINE FOR ME TO RECEIVE YOUR VINYL ART IS 14 FEBRUARY, 2015 (Valentine's Day)
I do hope you will join in!
Do join in, Stripygoose.
And anyone else, too.
the more the merrier!
I've spent hours this weekend cataloguing all my and your Vinyl Art.
This is what I have got:
Contributions to my Exhibition from IUOMA = 11
12" rpm = 66
10" rpm = 5
7" (singles) = 18
TOTAL = 100
More IUOMA contributions wanted for the Exhibition, please!
No only one side.
Make sure that it's packaged well (bubble wrap seems to be the best, and cheapest weight-wise, way to send vVnyl through the post). Someone sent me a 45 the other day, and it got broken into lots of pieces which i managed to glue together.
Hope you're well, Vinyl Val
What happened there, Svetlana???
