Art on the Divide 'Revs It Up' with Art Show & Car Show
Viewers might see low roof-lines and large exaggerated tires but the attention to detail is undeniable. Each car, whether a low-rider, rat-rod or crazy Volkswagen is one of a kind.
His show in September will complement the car show, “Pride of the Mountains,” happening on Sept. 7 on Main Street in Georgetown.
Beckerleg’s experience with cars started when he was 15 fifteen years old, prepping cars for painting and then building a 1933 Chevy Coupe hot rod at 16.
Beckerleg’s whimsical representations of cars are inspired by Tony Natsoulas, curator at the Blue Line Gallery and a renowned ceramic artist. He introduced Beckerleg to both ceramics and characters that have resulted in Beckerleg’s signature style of quirky cars that will be featured at the gallery.
Beckerleg was a co-curator and one of the featured artists at the Placer Arts Studio this past June where his cars took center stage.
