Art has found a grand new home at Hurley Motorsports on Route 209, where Rebecca Shea’s RCS Fine Art has mounted a new exhibition of works by area artists in what is normally a fine auto showroom, expanding the idea of beauty and graphic aesthetic accentuation by leaps and bounds. The artists showing for this first successful curatorial outing include Charlene Bachmann, Irwin Berman, Charles Butterly, Kelly Merchant and Dion Ogust: all highly professional artists with crisp, clean imagery to match the sleek design of the automobiles being showcased.

The resulting exhibit, titled “Rose Is a Rose,” not only ends up highlighting Hurley Motorsports’ Hoffstatter family’s sense of fun and art, but also will see 15 percent of the profits from all sales of artworks get donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society of Upstate New York.

“Rose Is a Rose” art show, Tuesday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Hurley Motorsports, 2779 State Route 209, Marbletown; www.rcsfineart.com.
