Hershey ... mmmmm

Admittedly, when I first heard the word "Hershey" mentioned, I thought of those cute little Hershey Kisses. Our 9 year old daughter, a self proclaimed chocoholic, still does! But over the years, cars have taken over our lives (in a good way), and like gearheads the world over, "Hershey" congers up visions of classic automobiles rather than chocolaty little morsels. Due to scheduling and other commitments, sadly we've never had the opportunity to attend. We have, however, heard from clients and friends that have gone that it is simply amazing. And it looks as though we're about to find out for ourselves!!

October is a busy month for us. We usually have a new print release and this year is no exception. I'll be posting the New Release webpage for "Marauders of Woodward" later this week. Michael has completed the painting (featuring the 2003-2004 Mercury Marauders on the famous Woodward Ave in Detroit, Michigan, it looks amazing) and we're working on scheduling the print production, etc.

We also usually exhibit at one or two car events during the month. Last year you may have seen us at Fall Carlisle (set up across from the food court under the grandstand) or at the RM Fall Auction held at the International Centre in Toronto. Last time we were at an RM Auction was this past April. There, we released the first print in Michael's new Above Them All Series, "It's a Grand Sport" (shown below). This October we'll be set up at the Auction again, however have decided to pass on Fall Carlisle. Planning instead to attend the event in Hershey with the kids!

Because it is such a busy time, we're not positive yet that we can go ... but we're trying to make it happen. I'll keep you posted. In the mean time, however, if you're planning to go to Hershey, you can see Michael's work up close and personal. Our friend (and Authorized Representative) Jim McDermott will be set up in the green lot, featuring a few of Michael's pieces, including a couple of Gallery Edition Canvases. If you haven't seen these in person yet, it's worth stopping by just to have the chance — they are super cool. Jim will set up at GCC7-8. He'll also be at Fall Carlisle — you'll find him in Building 'T' at spaces 57 and 58.

If you're looking for a way to spend a fall weekend, end of the season deals or early Christmas presents, here are the show dates to mark on you calendar. I've included the websites too:
Happy motoring! —Linda
