Every quarter in 2018 Solid State Vinyl Records will host a new Sight and Sound art exhibit featuring Minnesota based artists. Quarter one will feature local illustrators in “ILLOSHOW”!
When not making work for clients, illustrators keep busy by creating personal work, work that aligns with their passions. It’s a daily regimen of exploration and experimentation, and keeping the wheels moving. This show is a collection of personal work by a smart group of illustrators associated with the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Their work exemplifies their passions.
ILLOZINE is a quarterly zine about ideas and drawing, experimentation, self-expression, illustrators developing their personal vision or creating a new voice, breaking out of their routine, pushing their creativity. Curated by ILLOZINE publisher James O’Brien, artists featured in this show are up and coming illustrators and previous contributors to ILLOZINE.
Solid State Vinyl Records will host a closing reception for ILLOSHOW on Friday, March 30th from 6pm-8pm.
Photo Pass: Live Music In MSP
Solid State Vinyl Records is proud to present our 2nd Quarter Sight & Sound Art exhibit with Minneapolis Photographer Christopher Ludtke.
Chris-Ludtke-3-siteClose enough to see the sweat flying and the mascara running, these are shots you can’t get from a phone. Photo Pass catches a glimpse of priceless moments in Twin Cities venues such as First Avenue, 7th Street Entry, Dakota Jazz Club and Turf Club from the past year. The photos will be cycled out a time or two before the show closes, just like that unexpected cover in the encore.
