"Summer Cruising: Art of the Auto" Exhibit
Now through July 18
Summer memories are connected to cars -- cruises to the beach, family road trips, iconic car-chase movies, cruise nights and car parades, leisurely drives to Look Out Point with a summer love -- so there's something for everyone in our new exhibit.
45+ works by 20 emerging and established artists are showcased with photos, drawings, paintings, 3D works, and prints. All works are for sale and a portion of each sale benefits our programs. The exhibit is free and open to the public -- with plenty free parking behind WMOA!
Featured Artists: illustrator Guy Cassaday, photographers Corey Silvia and Don Swavely, line artist Jim Weicherding.
Warwick Artists: painter Joan Edge, photographers Barbara deCesare and Christopher St. Pierre, auto-parts furniture creator Jeffrey Goldstein.
Vintage Photos: nostalgic images from the 1950's to 1980's submitted by local residents.

A fun way for gallery guests to become part of the exhibit -- casting a ballot for their favorite care image -- and being automatically entered in our "Summer Cruising" CD Giveaway. We asked artists for their favorite road tunes and created a customized exhibit soundtrack of 20 classic car anthems -- which 4 lucky gallery guests will win!
Winners will be pulled Tuesday, July 8th at 7:45 and Friday, July 18 at 4:00!
