2nd Annual N4th Car Show & Art Exhibit

N4th Car Show & Art Exhibition

August 9, 2014
Saturday, 10am – 2pm
Free Admission

North Fourth Art Center is pleased to present the Second Annual N4th Car Show & Art Exhibit on Saturday, August 9, from 10am to 2pm. Admission is free and this year’s car show will include classic cars and bikes, live music and an art exhibition in N4th Gallery, with food trucks and vendors selling their wares in the car show parking lot. The event will help support North Fourth Art Center’s Exploratory Arts program to fund meaningful activities and needed supplies for adults with developmental disabilities.

Music performances by 3rd Element, a classic rock ensemble made up by Cary LeBlanc, Roland Gonzalez, Joel Backlund and Elliot Ruff Wagner, will kick off the event. Local jam band, Scotty and the Atomics will headline, playing music ranging from oldies to funk that is to certain to bring out all the dancers in the Car Show crowd.

Artwork related to cars and car culture is again the focus of the art exhibition. This year’s show, entitled Detour: Rust, Glass & Chrome, highlights three local artists. Paul Littman presents eloquently photographed and digitally enhanced images that recall visions of the open road and nostalgia about car culture. Richard Mordecki’s representational paintings of classic cars have a strong tendency toward fantasy, placing classic cars in dreamlike landscapes. Gail Sutton produces photographs printed on a variety of metallic media, creating the illusion of depth in vivid colors on untouched junkyard treasures. The exhibition will be on view in N4th Gallery during the N4th Car Show.

The show runs July 18 to September 8, 2014, with an ARTSCrawl Opening Reception on Friday, August 1, from 5pm to 7pm.

Scheduled vendors and food trucks include K’s Kones and Fun Jumps, Ye Old Kitchen Witch, The Chocolate Dude, Sebastiano’s Food Truck, and more.

For more information, or if you would like to register your classic car call 505-345-2140.
