CARMEL, Calif _ A guest artist in the Automotive Fine Arts Society (AFAS) exhibit, Dan McCrary will display a trio of automotive artworks honoring timeless classics at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, Aug. 21. The 2016 AFAS exhibit at the 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links will showcase the latest creations from the world’s finest automotive artists from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“It’s an honor to show my work alongside the incredible creations by AFAS artists,” said McCrary. “My art focuses on the beauty and subtleties of the cars on the Pebble Beach Concours field. It’s the perfect venue to showcase these paintings.”
One of McCrary’s pieces is a 25” x 17” watercolor of a 1960 Lincoln Continental’s rear panel. The abstract depiction is appropriately titled “Bling”. An examination of the panel’s reflective surface, the piece has a shimmering effect shown through the bright silver, blue and red hues. Another work in watercolor, titled “Mercurious,” is an isolated section of a red and black ’55 Mercury. McCrary’s third piece is a watercolor titled, “On A Hill Far Away Stands An Old Chevrolet.” The pastel palette of blues, greens and pinks exposes beauty in the rusting Chevy pick-up truck.
