Heritage Motor Centre to host special art exhibition celebrating 100 years of Aston Martin

Aston Martin painting
The Heritage Motor Centre is to host a special exhibition featuring paintings by artist Jeremy Houghton to commemorate 100 years of the most iconic British brand: Aston Martin. The exhibition, which runs from the 12 September for one month, will feature Houghton’s paintings from the Aston Martin Owners Club centenary tour of Europe and of archive photographs from the Trust’s Roger Stowers Aston Martin Collection.

Award winning artist (SEA best sporting artist 2012), Jeremy paints movement and light. Inspired by old photographs, his paintings have a nostalgic timeless quality. Born and bred in Broadway in the Cotswolds, racing and equine sports have been his constant inspiration. Jeremy has spent the past year as resident artist at Highgrove and was selected to be one of the Olympic artists for London 2012.

Jeremy was invited to be tour artist for the recent Aston Martin Owners Club centenary tour. The convoy of unique cars drove through Strasbourg, Monaco, Como, Garda, Davos and Reims, via some of the most impressive alpine passes and race tracks Europe has to offer. Once the exhibition ends, Jeremy’s paintings will travel to India for a show in one of the newest Aston Martin dealerships in Mumbai.

Jeremy said “Having spent so many years painting British sport, it feels like I have saved the best till last with the Aston Martin paintings. The courage of the drivers, combined with the skill of the engineers, gives this art exhibition a story like no other I have been involved with”.

The Houghton Aston Martin paintings will complement the Museums current ‘Aston Martin - A Century of Craftsmanship’ Exhibition, which opened on the 20 July and runs until the end of 2014.
