Via Pitchfork: “Bon Iver will release the new 12″ single for “Towers” from Bon Iver on January 23 via 4AD in the UK. The release will come Stateside via Jagjaguwar on March 6.
The single will come backed by a cover of John Prine’s “Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)”. Justin Vernon’s cover of the song opened the 2010 compilation Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine.”
Gregory Euclide’s cover artwork of the single, Untitled, is also featured on the inside cover of the album Bon Iver, Bon Iver. The artwork was featured in Gregory Euclide’s October, 2011 exhibition at the David B. Smith Gallery.

“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.”
ARTnews Magazine has reviewed Gregory Euclide’s recent exhibition at David B. Smith Gallery. The review, written by Kyle MacMillan, is in their December 2011 issue.
“Gregory Euclide puts a fantastical spin on the genre of landscape art, creating scenes that commingle the natural and artificial. For this fascinating exhibition, the up-and-coming Minnesota-based artist created ten hybrid relief works, none more than 29 inches wide or tall, that deliberately blur the distinction between painting and sculpture….” – Kyle MacMillan
Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists for 2011-2012.
Since 1981, the Jerome Foundation has generously funded this fellowship program to significantly advance, artistically and critically, emerging visual artists in Minnesota. This past month the members of the Jerome selection panel–Bruce Charlesworth, assistant professor of film, video, and new genres at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee; Miki Garcia, executive director of Contemporary Arts Forum Santa Barbara; and Cherise Smith, associate professor of art history and African and African diaspora studies at the University of Texas, Austin–reviewed a total of 236 applications.
The two works that Euclide presented to the selection panel will be available at the PULSE Contemporary Art Fair in Miami, December 1 – 4, 2011. David B. Smith Gallery will be in booth A-103. Please visit us at the fair or contact the gallery for further information and availability.
We are also proud to share that Gregory Euclide is currently featured on MN Original. You may visit their site to view a short video with the artist.

Visit the Small Worlds exhibition, then hear artist Gregory Euclide talk about his work and the site-specific installation he created for TMA.
David B. Smith Gallery is very pleased to announce the release of the first dedicated publication on the artwork of GregoryEuclide. The 13 x 9 inch hardcover monograph is 96 pages and contains 119 color reproductions. It is available in an edition of 500, with each copy signed and numbered in pencil by Euclide.
Contributors to the book include Amy Gilman, associate director and curator of contemporary art at the Toledo Museum of Art who states, “Euclide’s work brings new dimension to the tradition of landscape within art history. He does not confine his interest to our collective ideal of landscape, but actively engages with landscape as we actually live in it.” The book contains additional contributions from curators Denise Markinosh (MASS MoCA), Brooke Grucella (University of Arizona), Sarah Tanguy (ART in Embassies, U.S. Department of State), and Michael Chavez. Molly MacFadden, of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, contributed her blog post from the museum’s website. The post was written during Euclide’s residency at the museum while he was preparing his installation for the 2011 exhibition Otherworldly. Musician Justin Vernon of Bon Iver shares some poetic thoughts on Euclide. David Pescovitz (co-editor of Boing Boing) and Leanne Goebel (independent critic and curator) have also contributed to the book, along with Michael Cina (creative director of Cina Associates) and Don Myhre (mentor.)
The book is published by David B. Smith Gallery, and was printed and bound in the United States in October 2011.

Review by Barbara A. MacAdam, ARTnews Magazine, October, 2011
“….Gregory Euclide’s Held within what hung open and made to lie without escape (2011) was a standout for complexity – a landscape that spills from the art container into the gallery. It doesn’t simply create a parallel reality; it links art and nature, the real and the imagined, and the produced and the reproduced, showing that there is no single reality….”
