In response to the Storm Thorgerson Exhibition in the gallery between 7th-22nd December 2018, we are running our very own Album Art Fundraising Exhibition, deadline 17th December 2018.
We are looking for entries from professional, amateur and first-time artists for our charity fundraising exhibition. £100 Prize for Best in Show. Click here for an entry form and conditions of entry
The theme is Album Art and we’re inviting you to create an image of 30cm x 30cm to display alongside others in the Babylon Gallery. Your work could be inspired by a particular band or track, a homage to an existing album cover, or a new creation that you think would be great on a vinyl sleeve.
We welcome drawing, printing, painting, photography, digital art, collage and mixed media, as long as it’s 2 dimensional. We are looking for a range of styles and techniques, as well as work from all ages and experience levels.
Why Album Art?
We want to celebrate the artwork that is associated with our favourite bands, music and tracks. Artwork
on the cover of albums and singles often features eye-catching illustration, vibrant colours and lettering. It is renowned for being a great marketing tool, but just as important is the expression of artist intent. To inspire your creation you could listen to some music, look at the artwork of your favourite musicians or come and visit the Storm Thorgerson exhibition on display at Babylon Gallery from 17 November – 22 December 2018.
As long as your artwork is 30 x 30cm the subject and style is completely up to you. You could try thinking about colour, typography, imagery and style. You might wish to take inspiration from an existing album cover or music, or start from scratch and create something entirely new.
Deadline for entries: Monday 17th December 2018
Exhibition dates: Friday 18 January – Sunday 27 January 2019
