Art Galleries

Flatlanders Art Galleries proudly presents AT THE SPEED OF ART: A Celebration of Motor Vehicle. This group exhibition features works in various mediums inspired by motor vehicles. A closing reception with the artists and classic car show will be held Saturday, August 124h, 2010 from 12:00 to 4:00pm complete with festive food and live music provided by Sound Advice. This exhibit is free of charge and will be open to the public from June 11th to August 15th, 2010.

From airplanes to Indy racing, the artwork shown is motivated or connected to motor vehicles. Ric Leichliter’s reinterpretation uses smashed up repurposed car fenders, while Melinda Hallenbeck oil painting has a more classical approach.  You’ll find yourself captivated by Sergio de Giusti’s bust of Indy car driver Barney Oilfield and Ken Thompson’s small Porsche collection is not to be missed. The classic car show will also feature Mike Ennis’ 1957 Chevy Belaire 350 pro street rod, which took 1st place at the Auto Rama, a 1956 Jaguar XK120 and many other spectacular cars. Kids of all ages will enjoy sitting in the dirt late model car provided by X-Factor Motor Sports. Race car driver Zac Davis will be available for autographs.  Whether you’re a NASCAR fan visiting MIS, a car enthusiast or one of our gallery patrons, this exhibition is hot and as fast as the cars it features.
