Putting an artistic spin on an old vinyl
10:51am Thursday 21st March 2013 in News
DECORATED 12-inch vinyls are being collected at the Boars Head Gallery in Kidderminster for an open exhibition in April.
The event, called the 12-inch Art Amnesty, lets people decorate old unloved vinyl records and have them displayed at the gallery.
The records, which can be decorated in any way possible, need to be handed in before 5pm on Friday, March 29.
A open exhibition will then be held and prizes will be awarded to the best entries.
People can either pick up a record from the gallery to decorate or use one of their own and to enter, your name, age if under 16 and email must be put on the reverse on the record.
The exhibition will be launched on Friday, April 5 at a free event that will feature DJs celebrating vinyl and playing it live.
Local singer-songwriter Alex Round will be performing his original songs and some Britpop and 90s covers.
The event is free and there will chance to bid on the vinyl records that will feature original artwork from a diverse range of artists.
Corina Harper, arts co-ordinator said: “We think this is a great event to think about recycling abandoned materials into artwork for all ages and ranges in the community to become part of an exhibition.”
