Robin’s eye captures color and nostalgia of ‘fifty something’ car

Therefore, I cannot tell you where this left-behind auto resides, nor can I tell you its make or model. It’s a big old car that could carry a family of eight sans seat belts as was the custom of the day. Many more could have hidden in the trunk for a trip to the drive-in movie. The color, the rust, the wear and the nostalgia of this old sedan pulled for my full attention.

I am honored to have this piece included in the Oak Ridge Art Center Open Show hanging now through Nov. 30. This juried, mixed media show has some fabulous art. Make the short trip to Oak Ridge as something you will love is certainly on display there.

Come see us in our studio/gallery at the Emporium on South Gay Street for First Friday on Nov. 1 until 9 p.m.
