FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

"Wheels"
April 21, 2012 – May 11, 2012

Gallery Opening and Outdoor Wheels Show: Saturday, April 21, 12-7pm

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

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. In addition, on display in the gallery will be custom-made motorcycles by Lock Baker.

Bikes will be displayed courtesy of The Devil’s Gear Bike Shop, 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.

Saturday, April 21, from 12-7pm will be an all day car, motorcycle, and bicycle 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. Please come and see Wayne Carini of Chasing Classic Cars who will be here!

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

Located at 96 Orange Street, the mission of Reynolds Fine Art is to contribute to an economic and cultural ecosystem through vibrant samples of artwork, not only in our home neighborhood, but also in the Lower Chapel district and New Haven as a whole. Periodically, shows, demonstrations, lectures, workshops and art sessions are held to infuse New Haven with the different aspects of the art world.
