Original works of automotive art will be unveiled during Monterey Car Week when the Automotive Fine Arts Society stages its annual exhibit in conjunction with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Founded in 1984 by six artists, the society has grown to include 32 members. The first AFAS exhibit at Pebble Beach was held in 1986.

The exhibit not only showcases members’ latest artworks but is designed to inspire enhanced standards for automotive art “to a level of acceptance as serious fine art from the point of view of both collectors and critics.”
