33⅓! Altered Album Cover Art
December 5-31, 2014
In December, R. Pela Contemporary Art will present 33⅓! Altered Album Cover Art. This juried exhibit features artwork by renowned local and international artists and new, emerging artists alike, who’ve submitted work that was selected by a blue ribbon panel of judges including award-winning visual art critics, local artists, and obsessive record collectors. The work pays homage to manipulated album cover art—iconic LP sleeves, well-known bands, and obscure gems, from local and national artists alike. It’s an exhibit for anyone who’s ever defaced a Donny Osmond LP cover or wanted to augment a favorite record jacket.
The artists on display in 33⅓! are Bob Allen, Louis Clemente, Scarlett Decker, Todd Daniel Grossman, Matt Hinrichs, Jerry Jacobson, Kimber Jones, Hank Keneally, Ann Osgood, Roberta Smith, Lisa Sutton, Hannah Irene Walsh, and Randy Zucker.
33⅓! Altered Album Cover Art will open on First Friday, December 5 with an artist reception at 6 p.m., and a second reception on Third Friday, December 19 at 6. Otherwise, the gallery, located at 335 West McDowell Road in Phoenix, is open by appointment by calling 602-320-8445.
