BBC, Gregory Euclide

Via the BBC:

“The rural scenes depicted on Bon Iver’s second album were drawn by American contemporary artist Gregory Euclide. Reflecting the record’s rustic roots – the songs are all named after geographical locations, some real, others imaginary – Euclide used natural elements from his surroundings in the etching, including pieces of pine cone and snow from a nearby forest.”

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.”
