'Hell on Wheels' art show at Rust Belt Market

Sat., Aug. 19

Hell on Wheels during Dream Cruise weekend is a show at Rust Belt Market in Ferndale, featuring strong female Detroit artists whose art revolves around cars and the female perspective. These women are role models for young girls (and old) — who are just starting out or just struggling to find their place in the art world. These fierce ladies have been revving up for the summer show “Hell on Wheels”, August 18-19th 2017, just in time for Dream Cruise, the biggest car show of the summer!

Featuring top female Detroit artists: Jacx (Jaclyn Schanes), Niagara, and Debbie Sipes. With additional sculpture, art and classic cars on display by Rust Belt resident Chris Gorski, Liv Art, Opie, and hand-made car artist/sculptor Keith Coleman.

Music performances by amazing up-comer, Josie Pace, playing the kick-off party on Friday night. Then on Saturday performances by Jacx and a special set by the femme fatales of garage rock, StunGun.

“Hell on Wheels” show in Ferndale at Rust Belt Market’s, August 18th 2017, 5pm-9pm (VIP, Kickoff, press, sponsor night) and August 19th, 2017, 12pm-7pm during the cruise. Produced by IconicaArt.com.

Hell on Wheels

Sat., Aug. 19, 12-7 p.m.

Woodward Dream Cruise

Sat., Aug. 19

It’s almost pointless to write about the Dream Cruise. Now in its 22nd year, anyone in any proximity to the stretch of Woodward Avenue in Oakland County on the third Saturday of August is well-aware of the Cruise — the thousands of classic and rare cars that parade up and down the corridor (officials estimate it draws more than 30,000, from the world over), the sounds of revving engines, the smell of gasoline and exhaust (hey, some people are into it). For even more car love, the Rust Belt Market will host Hell on Wheels, featuring automotive-themed works from a bill of nearly all women. Starts at 9 a.m.; Woodward Avenue, from Ferndale to Pontiac; woodwarddreamcruise.com; Free admission.

From Ripe to Rot

Sat., Aug. 19, 6-8 p.m.

A Detroit native, Portland, Ore.-based fine artist AJ Fosik has gone on to make a name for himself in the world of contemporary fine art through his signature style of intricate, hand-carved, and surreal wooden sculptures of animal busts — making From Ripe to Rot, the artist's latest exhibition, something of a homecoming show. While Fosik's work evokes taxidermy and has an undeniable dark aspect, he describes it in a different light. "I think sometimes people mistake my work for the macabre but in fact it is the opposite," he says in a statement. "I use imagery tied to the impermanence of being in my work as a celebration of this brief time we have." Free
