Hot rods, muscle cars and Americana features are now lining the walls of Got Art Gallery in honor of a “July 4 Guys” themed showcase. Artists, Doug Bennett, Dan Ingram and Will Mattingly opened the exhibit with a reception June 28.
Dan Ingram, a self-taught, naturally talented artist found his niche in the art world creating images of beautiful automobiles.
“I’ve been around cars my whole life, and I’ve always drawn,” Ingram said.
Ingram began his artistry using airbrush, but after a brain injury in 2009, switched to using chalk.
“After being hospitalized…for some reason chalk became something I preferred to use,” He said.
Airbrush being a medium that required a lot of standing, chalk became a better option for Ingram.
From sports cars, old time hot rods and even airplanes he has created artwork for clients. He has also created images for people who are considering buying their dream cars but would like to see what it looks like in a particular color or style.
“I customize with lots of detail, so it is photo realistic as possible,” He said.
The exhibit runs through July 20 at Got Art Gallery. Got Art Gallery is located at 18 SW 3rd St. and gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday from noon-4 p.m.
