Art in the Fast Lane

Vestige Concept Gallery

Pittsburgh, PA

Art In The Fast Lane seeks to showcase works that pay tribute to the art and culture of the great American automobile.  Muscles, classics, rods, pickups, Harleys, suped-up, chrome wheeled, fuel injected, 4-banger, 6 banger, motors, engines.  Art could also feature people: garage culture, greasers, racing culture, roadside attractions, logos, pop art, and more.  Work should capture the ideal of freedom and the spirit of the open road. 😎  This is the final show of a 4-part summer series from Vestige Concept Gallery.

We are seeking National artists of any kind, from Emerging,  Student, Mid-Career, and/or Professional. Work should somehow relate to the theme of the show.
