From around the world they come to Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach every August. Descending private jets, emerging from supercars, or leaping from packed vans, they come to wander among a world-class collection of legendary cars before a majestic setting.
Many of the most astute car enthusiasts also come to see paint…
*A New Star is Born* – Ken Eberts anniversary painting for the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance
This year is no different. On August 16, from 9 am to 4 pm the giant tent displaying the latest works of The Automotive Fine Art Society will greet visitors. Well, this year is somewhat more special, it’s the 30th anniversary of the AFAS Exhibit at Pebble Beach.
22 AFAS members will be exhibiting their latest work. They will be there to present their work to those who stop to discuss. Each artist will display at least 3 new pieces. Founder Ken Eberts and fellow famed artist Tom Hale are bringing eight each.
Three guest Japanese artists have been invited to display their automotive fine art for the first time at Pebble Beach.
Lincoln has sponsored the AFAS Exhibit at Pebble Beach for two decades. They wanted to really celebrate their 75th anniversary of the Lincoln Continental this year, and the rebirth of the Lincoln Continental in 2016. So they commissioned Ken Eberts to create a painting just for the occasion. *A New Star is Born* will debut at the show. Some lucky guest attending the preview showing will actually be awarded this painting in a drawing.
*A New Star is Born* is a 21 x 35 inch gouache. It poses the 2016 Lincoln Continental Concept before a ’56 Continental MKII, in front of the warmly lit Lodge at Pebble Beach. A sensual woman in flowing blue gown breathes life into the legacy by casting glitter of the Lincoln logo.
