Upper Gallery and Mezzanine

Luster: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting, is an exhibition comprised of over 55 paintings by 15 artists who through their photo-realistic and hyper-realistic work share their adoration for the sensuous line and shimmering surfaces of motorized vehicles.

Each work offers the opportunity for the viewer to experience intimate aspects of glistening surfaces and radiant paint.

Through depictions of steel, chrome, and metallic finishes, the artists share their fascination with elements that elevate cars and bikes above mere modes of transportation. In true homage and celebration of the American fascination with the automobile.
