With two weeks remaining before Plastic Prophets of Vinyl Redemption opens at Distinction Gallery, I’ve been busily making final preparations for what I hope to be a spectacular show. Fourteen of the 22 photos that will be on display are now back from the framer and everything looks really great! Above is one of the pieces you’ll see in the show, Idol Worship of the Worshipped Idols, which is framed in a vintage Federal frame that I had restored with a black finish and gold metal leaf. Every photo in this exhibit features the presidents of the United States, from George Washington through JFK, who appears in this piece nestled into a bed of rubies. The frame was an eBay find, and it captures the presidential theme of the exhibit perfectly.
In addition to the art on the walls, I’m going to have a couple of small installations on display, some video animations playing on the gallery’s computer, limited edition flip books, and a one-of-a-kind hard cover book that shows all of the behind-the-scenes work that’s gone into preparing for the exhibit. Here’s a sample spread from the book:
There’s only going to be one copy of the book on hand, so enjoy it — but treat it gently!
Images from the show will be posted in another week or two, so check back often!
