This piece was created for the Altered Functions Show at the Art Center of Manatee. The artists' reception is tonight, May 29, 2009. The pieces will be on exhibit from May 28 through June 27 in the galleries at Art Center of Manatee, Bradenton, Florida. Hope to see you there!
The acrylic painting is on plexiglass which was placed in the opening of this actual Porsche engine cover which I bought at Vortex in Tampa. (Thanks, Doug!) Adhered to the back of the plexiglass is a Florida map showing Melbourne to Clearwater, the route of the Porsche Club of America Sunrise/Sunset Rally. The sun is--appropriately--an antenna topper.
The original plate at the top of the cover reads, "Beach Racing Cars." The can contains the magnetic letters U and C. Screwed to the center is a 3D rearview mirror. This is followed by the letters N and A. The question mark is made up of small keys.
"Can you see yourself in a Porsche?" We hope so and we hope that you will join is in the Suncoast Porsche Club of America or the PCA of your local region.
