ARTIST MICHAEL IRVINE JOINS MCACN SPONSOR FAMILY
In our business, sponsorship is one of the most important elements for our continued success and viability. We are truly honored to have some of the best people in the industry who share our passion and support what we do through their sponsorship. Today we are happy to announce we have a new sponsor; automotive artist Michael Irvine. Hailing from St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada, Michael joined us for the first time in 2011, showcasing his unique and vibrant style. Known for his use of high impact color, reflections and attention to detail, he is able to produce sharp images that are captivating, powerful, incredibly detailed, imaginative and creative.
Michael offered his first painting, “Evolution of a Legend” in 1994, while concentrating on a successful career as a commercial illustrator. In 2006, he decided to pursue his career in auto art full time. Including research time, each of his paintings takes 100’s of hours to complete. If you are a fan of Mopars, Ford’s, Mercury’s or GM muscle, he has something for you! His work adorns the walls of numerous collectors and boardrooms around the world.
In addition to his original art, Michael offers a wide variety of Limited Edition signed and numbered prints and highly collectible artist proofs with custom remarque, along with ready-to-hang gallery edition canvases. For a preview of Michaels art, check out his website; www.michaelirvine.com and be sure to take some time to meet Michael and his wife Linda at the show, where he will have a display in the “big room” November 17-18.
Each year I recommend automotive art as the perfect holiday gift for your favorite car freak. We are honored to host some of the most talented artists in the world at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, so be sure to help us welcome Michael and all of our talented artists to the show this year.
