Warwick, RI – The Warwick Museum of Art’s latest exhibit, “Summer Cruising: The Art of the Auto” shows now through July 19, and you can meet the crafters, painters, illustrators and photographers during Wednesday night’s opening reception at the 3259 Post Road location.

The exhibit explores the fun, exhilaration, and passion that cars inspire in 55 works by 20 emerging and established artists.  Works including auto-parts furniture, fine art photography, illustrations, line art drawings, paintings and prints are showcased in the main gallery.

The people responsible for all that internal combustion – inspired art will be on hand Wednesday, June 25, from 6 – 8 p.m. Visitors will be treated to light refreshments, get to mingle with the artists and learn about their work, which will be on sale during the exhibit.

Later during the exhibit run, on July 8, 6-8 p.m., hear how 2 artists and 1 writer have been inspired by cars:

* Guy Cassaday – toy designer turned car illustrator
* Corey Silvia – computer rep turned car photographer
* Peter Elsworth – writer for “Car Journal” at ProJo

The event is free and open to the public, with ample free parking behind Warwick City Hall and the museum.
