In the meantime, what's going on back at the shop?....
Our exhibition featuring Musician-Printmakers, SOUNDCHECK, is up and running until August 31, 2013.
Here's a description of the conceptual idea behind SOUNDCHECK:
- SOUNDCHECK aims to celebrate the work of Musician-Printmakers who actively and enthusiastically express themselves in multiple art forms. To pick careers in both music and art is not exactly the most lucrative choice, and yet, these artists strive for the highest standards in both of their chosen mediums. These art forms are related. The act of recording is an act of layering, as the rhythms are often tracked first, with layers and layers of instruments and vocals resting upon one another in a complex matrix of sound. So too are prints made, with layers of visual information entered upon stone or plate or screen in order to produce a rich and penetrating image.
SOUNDCHECK showcases a portfolio of prints made by 9 artists in an edition of 20 and is accompanied by a CD of 9 songs (related to the artwork, recorded by each artist). The 12" x 12" SOUNDCHECK portfolio is packaged to resemble a vinyl album cover. There are 10 portfolios available to the public for purchase, as well as individual proofs by each artist.
Take a gander at the opening reception of Soundcheck:
