Call for works for Woodend Barn Christmas Albums Exhibition

September 26, 2012

Remember how exciting the artwork on LPs used to be? How they could fold out double or even triple? How they could contain posters or freebies?


Let your imagination run wild for Woodend Barn’s Christmas show 2012. We are inviting artists to submit up to two works, 12” square. The subject matter is up to you. We will be displaying the works in 12” vinyl sleeves on the wall or in a browser so there is no need to frame. The only criterion is that pieces must fit inside the vinyl sleeve for display.


We cannot guarantee your work will be hung from the beginning of the show, depending on how many pieces are submitted. But people will be able to take work when they buy it, so the exhibition can change while it is on. We will aim to have all pieces submitted either on the wall or in the browser.


The opening will be Friday November 23rd 6.00-8.00pm, with mulled wine and Christmas nibbles to get everyone in the seasonal mood.


The show will run from Saturday November 24th (the weekend of the Woodend Barn Craft Fair) until January 19th 2013.


There will be a comfy chair, record player and records so people can make themselves cosy and get in the festive mood. If anyone has any suitable vinyl we could borrow for this, please let us know.


As the Lang Byre Gallery is run by volunteers, we rely on volunteer stewards to staff the gallery. If exhibitors could spare a few hours to steward the gallery once or twice during the exhibition, this would make things easier for everyone at a busy time of year. We do find that sales increase when stewards are present.


We will also be selling Christmas cards by exhibiting artists.


If you would like any more information, please contact the Woodend Barn Office by emailing or telephone 01330 825431.


Kind regards,

Woodend Barn
