West Virginia Wesleyan College’s Sleeth Gallery campus will host a closing reception tonight, Dec. 9 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. for Tracked Prints/Layered Sounds: Expanded. An artist talk will immediately follow. The exhibit runs through Dec. 16.
The multi-disciplinary exhibition, which includes sculpture, hand-pulled prints, collage and a drawing machine explores the myriad of structural and aesthetic similarities between printed imagery and recorded music. Many printers are also musicians and if not players themselves, many artists draw influence from the recorded music of others. This exhibition of printed work explores the notion of self-publication, private press recordings, and editioned prints as parts of an ecology of ideas and practice.
The Tracked Prints/Layered Sounds Portfolio collects the visual and audible work of artists both as printed editions and as a collaborative lathe-cut vinyl record. Like handmade prints, a lathe-cut record is made by physically cutting audio files into the vinyl in real time. Each record captures an impression of the audio, and like a print, each record is made one at a time. The included artists’ work between audio and visual and artworks considers the intersections of commercial and fine art, personal and political, individual and collective.
