Aston Martin paintings mark firm’s centenary at the HMC

| 8 Aug 2013

Paintings by Jeremy Houghton will commemorate 100 years of Aston Martin at The Heritage Motor Centre from 12 September.

The exhibition will feature Houghton’s paintings from the Aston Martin Owners’ Club Centenary Tour of Europe and of archive photographs from the Trust’s collection of Roger Stowers’ photos.

Houghton’s work is inspired by old photographs and is said to give a nostalgic timeless quality.

He said: “Having spent so many years painting British sport, it feels like I have saved the best until last with the Aston Martins. 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 exhibition will complement the Museum’s current Aston Martin – A Century of Craftsmanship display.

Admission to both is included in the normal entry price, which is charged at £12 for adults, £8 for children (5-16 years), while under-5s go free. Concession tickets cost £10.
