“Luster” and Other Vehicle-Themed Exhibits on Display

“Luster: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting,” runs June - September 29, 2019 and is comprised of over 55 paintings by 15 of today’s realists and hyperrealists who specialize in automobiles and motorcycles as their primary subject. Artists include (in alphabetical order): A.D. Cook (Las Vegas, NV), Randy Ford (Eastampton, NJ), Allan Gorman (West Orange, NJ), Marc G. Jones (Loveland, CO), Cheryl Kelley (Northern California), Richard Lewis (Los Angeles, CA), Lory Lockwood (New Orleans, LA), Robert Petillo (Hardyston, NJ), Kris Preslan (Lake Oswego, OR), Joseph Santos (Buena Park, CA), Ken Scaglia (Weston, CT), John E. Schaeffer (La Grange, TX), Guenevere “Moto Painter” Schwien (Portland, OR), and Harold Zabady (Camp Hill, PA). Their work exemplifies the very best of automotive painting being done today, and builds on that of the first wave of photo-realists in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, which included the likes of Harold Cleworth, Don Eddy, Richard Estes, and Ralph Goings.

Like the shiny automobiles and motorcycles portrayed by the exhibit’s artists, this exhibit’s paintings can be characterized by the luster that permeates their imagery. Chrome ornamentation and trim together with enameled bodywork, glass, and interior fabrication to meet the needs of purpose-built vehicles of all sorts: these are the surfaces which recent realists and hyperrealists have exploited to generate true, virtuosic masterpieces.

Serving as curator for “Luster: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting,” is David J. Wagner, who earned his Ph.D. in American Studies and served as a museum director for 20 years.

“Luster” is sponsored by The Robert Hoag Rawlings Foundation, Dr. Jarvis & Mary Jo Ryals, The Jackson Foundation, Pueblo Toyota, Wendy & Dr. Barry Rapp, The Walter & Lucille Timme Foundation, Carolyn Jackson, The Bob & Doris Johnston Foundation, Carolyn Jackson, Dr Richard & Joyce Lawrence, Mona Askwig, Dan & Kerry DeRose, Bill & Elaine Nicoll, John Oechsle in memory of Ing Oechsle, Banner & Bower, P.C., Drs. Gregorio & Haydee Kort, Kathy Farley & Fran McClave, Dr. Chris & Judy Stjernholm, Dr. Carl & Kay Bartecchi, Ted & Sylvia Clair, Drs. Bob & Sara Tonsing, and KPHT 95.5. Additionally sponsored by D&S Paint Center, Pueblo Community College Automotive Department, Pueblo City-County Library District, and Stifel.
