was a guest artist at the Pebble Beach AFAS exhibition in 2016 and was elected to Associate Membership. I like her work for both content and technique: they are not pictures of cars. We take a close look in this issue.
Hyper-realism in not my favorite art style but Dan McCrary

I received an email from Osman Arik
in Turkey about a year ago inquiring about both the magazine and AFAS. We present a cross-section of his work in this issue but I am somewhat concerned in that we have not been able to get in touch with him for quite some time.

Van and Fitz

Our somewhat regular “20 Year Revisit”

Say goodbye to the old archived issues from 2010, 2011 and 2012. Written in a format that is no longer supported across all browsers... and definitely not mobile devices... we were faced with the major job of recoding or removing. Since it is much outdated news anyway, we've decided to remove.
Our next issue is in late September and will feature a review of the AFAS exhibition at Pebble Beach. In a related story, don’t miss Michelle Cousineau’s
judge’s perspective on the 2016 show in the Detours section.
Thanks for visiting our latest issue. I welcome your comments...
