“Auto Erotica: an Intimate Look at the Automobile” a show of fine art photography with the subject being automobiles, will run from August 1 thru August 28th at the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts.
A reception for the artists will be held Friday, August 1st from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Most of the artists showing images are members of ImageMakers.
The exhibit features more than 30 photographs from 16 local photographers exploring the sensual lines and forms of the automobile. Fascination with automobiles transcends age, gender, and environment. While today automotive manufacturers often strive for economy and efficiency, there was a time when elegance reigned. Influenced by the Art Deco movement that began in Paris in the early 1920s and propelled to prominence with the success of the International Exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in 1925, automakers embraced the sleek new streamlined forms and aircraft-inspired materials, creating memorable automobiles that still thrill all who see them.
The Gallery is open Monday – Friday, 11:00am – 4:00pm
