Motorcycle art on display

Calling all painters, photographers, sculptors, cartoonists, airbrushers, graphic artists and creators of motorcycle-themed art.

We know there’s a lot of folks who ride motorcycles that do more than catch bugs in their teeth and wrench on their bike – so we thought it was time to show off the ‘artistic’ side of riders and host the Freewheelin’ Motorcycle Art show at the Corre Alice Gallery as part of the Cumberland Motorcycle Roundup, Aug. 7-9.

Let’s think beyond ‘skulls and flames’: there’s helmets to paint, parts to weld and sculpt, old shop signs to resurrect, tanks to adorn, bike and rider photography, imagery of bikes to draw/paint/graphic design. You name it – create it!

Entry deadline is Aug. 1. Drawings, paintings and photography must be framed and a $5 hanging fee will be collected at the drop off date, Aug. 7.

This is a non-juried art show and everyone is welcome.

Please go to Art Show on our website www.cumberlandmotorcycleroundup.com for more info and application form. Invite your friends – find us on Facebook.
