The British Motor Museum is to host an exhibition entitled “The Gallery 2024” opening on 29 April. The exhibition, a continuing collaboration with Historic Car Art, will run until 30 June 2024. Visitors will be able to enjoy a collection of motoring-related pieces from a variety of Britain’s most creative automotive artists and sculptors.

Alongside the exhibition, the Museum will also be running a competition for young artists to enter. The competition will be judged by a panel consisting of Head of Collections & Engagement, Stephen Laing, Historic Car Art Gallery owner Rupert Whyte and featured artists John Ketchell and Kate Alger. As part of the prize, winning young artists will have their work displayed at the Museum over the summer holidays. (See BMM website for full information).

The Gallery showcases a number of leading motoring artists including Simon Britnell, Kate Alger, John Ketchell, Emma Carpenter and Neil Collins. The artists work with a variety of media, including acrylics, oil, watercolour, pen, and pastels. Alongside the evocative paintings, Jonny Ambrose and Chris Twitchell will bring their eye-catching sculptures to the exhibition.

Historic Car Art has been operating from its rural Derbyshire base since 2004. It has been built over time from a passion for art, cars, automotive history and the racing exploits of drivers and manufacturers, combined with a great interest in how this has all been depicted over the years in both artwork and promotional advertising. Historic Car Art is now a leader in acquiring and supplying original automotive art and vintage posters, building collections for discerning private and corporate clients worldwide.

Rupert Whyte, Historic Car Art Gallery owner, commented “It’s been fantastic to have the opportunity to work with the British Motor Museum again for this exhibition. There are so many talented artists working in the automotive art scene today, and it’s a privilege for Historic Car Art to be able to bring our work to a wider audience through this partnership. We hope visitors enjoy perusing this collection - no matter what kind of car fan they are, they’re bound to find a piece that will capture their imagination.”

Stephen Laing, Head of Collections & Engagement at the British Motor Museum, added: "We're delighted to collaborate for a second year with Historic Car Art to showcase the work of some of Britain's most talented artists. The community of artists in Britain taking inspiration from the automobile and motorsport has arguably never been stronger. There is such a wide array of styles and media, capturing the motor car in almost every era and situation.”

Access to the exhibition is included with standard Museum admission tickets. Full details on the website:
