In an interview that recently aired on Vice News Tonight, White Stripes frontman and Third Man Records boss Jack White said that the huge resurgence in the popularity of music on vinyl is occurring because, among other reasons, vinyl is “reverential.” That seems about right. There’s a certain sense of respect and even awe that accompanies the large, physical article. Inspired by their love of vinyl, the folks of Pan Dulce Gallery are presenting “Hot Wax: An Art Exhibition for Vinyl Lovers.” Featuring work rendered on vinyl records by 20-plus local and regional artists, the event one-ups that reverence White mentions. By creating works of art on old vinyl records, these artists have repurposed the artifacts in a way that celebrates their past lives, as well as their materiality/texture. Among the local artists showing are Hello Reg (unique, feminist, often bawdy graphic design), Daphid (pop art, often featuring musicians and other celebrities) and Jason “PopGuy” Ibarra (quirky, often dramatic, puro San Anto). Free, 7pm-midnight Sat, Apr. 15, Pan Dulce Gallery, 1005 N. New Braunfels Ave., (210) 797-2628, facebook.com/pandulcegallery.
