DBSG | Gregory Euclide Print Release

From the good old boys over at the:

Announcing Gregory Euclide limited edition print of the artwork featured on Bon Iver's Bon Iver album cover; 50% of net proceeds to charity

David B. Smith Gallery and artist Gregory Euclide are very pleased to announce the limited edition print release of Euclide's artwork created for the cover of Bon Iver's new album, Bon Iver. Euclide's image is printed on archival Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper in an edition of 500, pencil signed, and numbered by the artist. The paper size is 24 x 24 inches.

The prints are available for $225 each, with 50% of net proceeds donated to Agapé Riding Center and the Greater Mankato Area United Way Connecting Kids Program, two non-profit organizations based in South Central Minnesota. Agapé Riding Center's equine assisted-learning program aims to help young people develop a sense of connection to the self, others, and the natural environment. The Greater Mankato Area United Way Connecting Kids program educates parents and guardians about opportunities in the community for kids to get involved, and provides financial resources to households that need help in order for their children to participate in youth development programs. For more information on these organizations, please visit the Agape Riding Center website and the Greater Mankato Area United Way Connecting Kids Program website.

"By making high quality reproductions of the art used for the Bon Iver cover," Euclide states, "we're able to give fans something really special as well as afford opportunities to underprivileged children in our community. That's art being useful."

To order the print and/or to receive additional information, please visit the Editions page of our website.

About the Artist

Gregory Euclide is an artist and teacher living in the Minnesota River Valley. His reverence for the natural world originates from his childhood in rural Wisconsin, where he developed an appreciation for experience in the land. The interconnectedness of the environment and culture has led Euclide to an exploration of how landscape (a way of viewing the land) is tied to the actual treatment and use of land.

Euclide received his MFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and was awarded two Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grants through the National Endowment for the Arts and a Jerome Foundation Residency through the Blacklock Nature Sanctuary. His work was featured in Badlands: New Horizons in Landscape at MASS MoCA (March 2008-April 2009) and is currently included in the exhibition Otherworldly at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. Euclide's work will also be seen at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, New Jersey in the October exhibition Deconstructing Nature, and in Small Worlds, opening in November at the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio.
