Gallery500 and Frank Molnar of the Lifestyle Group at Oceans Luxury Realty will collaborate once again to host the fifth annual Art of Speed fundraising event at One Daytona on Friday, Jan. 27.
The free event, to be held at Victory circle from 6:30-9 p.m., will showcase luxury cars from around the world.Guests can also experience a VIP party hosted by Gallery500. For a donation-based entry fee benefitting The NASCAR Foundation, VIP guests will enjoy live art from three artists: Thomas Arvid, Bill Patterson and Jamie Travis.
Wineries such as Silver Oak Cellars and Far Niente have collected Arvid's pieces because of his ability to represent wine onto canvas. Patterson is a motion sports artist and can often be found at a NASCAR race or creating live art at a charity event. Travis has been a professional artist for over 25 years, and depicts seascapes.
Gallery500 will also debut the work of Daytona Beach artist Mark E. Lewis. The Florida native is the first digital artist to exhibit at Gallery500. After a career at the Daytona International Speedway, he is now a receiver coach at Seabreeze High School and full-time digital artist.
