Press release

Reynolds Fine Art is pleased to present Wheels, a fine art exhibition and car show. The first of its kind in New Haven, this exhibit will feature art work that revolves around the theme of wheels.

Join us on Friday night, Apr. 20, from 5—8 p.m. for a gallery opening reception. This group exhibition will feature work in a variety of media, including painting, photography, and sculpture. In some cases the work itself is created of recycled car parts or road signs. Bruno Ratensperger, Connecticut based classic car photographer, will be exhibiting; commissions available. In addition, on display in the gallery will be handmade motorcycles by Lock Baker. Bikes will be displayed curtesy of Devil’s Gear, New Haven Power Sports, and Zane’s Cycles. This unlikely and exciting juxtaposition will serve to bridge the gap in the viewer’s mind between form and function of art.

Sat., Apr. 21, from 12—8 p.m. will be an all day auto show. Antique and performance cars will be on view in the parking garage adjacent to Reynolds Fine Art. A section of Orange Street between Chapel Street and Crown Street will be closed off to road traffic to allow additional cars and motorcycles to be displayed. Surrounding businesses will be participating in this event as well. Be sure to stop by Arpaia Lang, located at 806 Chapel Street, to join in a raffle of jewelry custom made for this event!

This event is free and open to the public. A portion of proceeds from sales will go to benefit Autism Speaks.
