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.
