Tom Kenyon's block prints mix paint with fictional newspaper articles about his grandfather's car company.
Mar. 5-Apr. 6: Dreams of Speed - 2
Tom Kenyon says his grandfather's auto business — the Kenyon Motor Company — never actually raced cars. But that didn't stop the artist and car enthusiast from using his imagination. The wheels started turning for Dreams of Speed - 2 when Kenyon built a 1940's-era belly tank racer out of wood, metal and canvas. The result is parked in Waverly Street Gallery in Bethesda through April 6, and if it weren't for the cardboard tires, you might believe it's real. Kenyon supplements the model car with prints and collages made from fabricated newspaper articles about the Kenyon Motor Company's invented racing exploits.
