LUSTER: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting

The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts presents LUSTER: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting organized by David J. Wagner, L.L.C, from October 5 – December 31, 2023, at the Blue Buffalo Gallery located at 123 N. Chadbourne. The exhibit features approximately fifty original paintings by more than fifteen realist and hyperrealist painters specializing in automobiles and motorcycles.

Throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, cars and motorcycles have been ubiquitous not only on the nation’s streets and highways, but also in film, top forty hits, and painting. With the emergence of photo-realism in the 1960s, motor vehicles assumed a special place of distinction as subject matter in the iconography of American art. The artists’ work embodies the very best of automotive painting today and encompasses a broad range of car and motorcycle styles and designs from vintage vehicles to classics of the 1950s and ‘60’s, to road and track racing, off-road vehicles, exotics, and more.

SAMFA is grateful to community partners such as Blue Buffalo Gallery, who have helped the museum keep exhibits and programming going while the main building is undergoing repairs. SAMFA’s iconic 1 Love Street building will reopen on January 19, 2024.
