Covering some 50 years of seven-inch vinyl record sleeve art, from Sinatra to the Sex Pistols and beyond, Framed 45s: A Wall of Sound has been created/curated by Windlesham resident Paul Murphy at The Lightbox, Woking, and runs until Sunday May 11.
“Why Framed 45s? That’s Easy,” says Paul. “Some record sleeves are just too good to be living in a box. Some record sleeves are art in their own right. Some record sleeves still makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end years later - in fact, decades later. Your first date, your first dance; Flower Power, Girl Power: freak outs, stay ins; rave nights, romantic nights; a moment in time…”
Framed 45s is part of The Lightbox’s rotating Taste of Art series, which features local artists.
