ARTISTS FROM NATIONALLY-RENOWNED ART SCHOOL PAINT ITALIAN SPORTS CAR IN SEATTLE SHOWROOM


 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 9, 2018 — Two accomplished artist from a nationally-renowned school of art painted the hood of an Italian sports car on May 2.

Gage Academy of Art, best known for their atelier approach (a tradition, spanning back to the Renaissance of extended apprenticeships in the studios of master artists), appointed two artists to paint a sports car in the showroom of Ferrari of Seattle in preparation for the school’s annual fund-raising auction.

Gage Spring Art Auction & Gala

The painted Ferrari, which will be on display alongside other works of art at the Gage Spring Art Auction & Gala, will draw attention to a live auction experience package courtesy of Ferrari of Seattle, Barolo Ristorante, and DeLaurenti Specialty Food & Wine, and will help raise funding for the nonprofit art school. The high bidder can expect an afternoon test drive behind the wheel of a Ferrari Portofino, followed by an Italian dinner. The package also includes an Italian-themed gift basket and a 1:2 scale model Formula 1 helmet, painted by the artists especially for the occasion.

“Ferrari of Seattle is excited to play an important role in supporting the arts through our partnership with Gage Academy of Art,” said Crystal Crocker, the Marketing and Events Manager for Ferrari of Seattle. “We’re delighted to have worked with Gage artists, Rebecca Hartsook and David Sun on such a unique collaboration and can’t wait to show off the finished car at the Gage Spring Art Auction & Gala!”

The gala, which takes place on May 12 at Fremont Studios, is the only annual fundraising event for Gage Academy of Art, and is produced with help from presenting sponsor Laird Norton Wealth Management.
