Since its 1983 founding, the Automotive Fine Arts Society has worked tirelessly to legitimize and promote the automobile, and motoring subjects, as worthy subjects for master-quality fine artwork. For many years, the AFAS has had a tent at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where members and invited guests display their latest award-winning pieces to an appreciative audience.Hemmings

The latest creations by the finest automotive artists of our day are displayed annually at the Automotive Fine Arts Society (AFAS) Exhibition—located right on the show field of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The automobile changed the whole of our culture almost immediately upon its introduction; it was more than transportation, it served as a status symbol, it was a matter of style. But it took some time for the art world to view the automobile as an appropriate subject of fine art. In 1983, a group of respected artists with automotive interests formed AFAS to rectify this. They organized their first major exhibition at the 1986 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and it was such a success that it quickly became a regular feature.
