Proclaiming itself to be “the best car and art exhibition in history,” Sleeping with Art debuts September 23-24 at the Lemore Estate in Herefordshire, UK, where 80 artists will display their work.

Among the artists showcasing, event organizers report, are Miami-based Camilo Rios (aka RIOCAM), Scottish Pop artist Stuart McAlpine Miller, US-based Derek Gores, motoring artist Paul Oz and McLaren car designer Robert Melville.

“It will be the first time US based artist Derek Gores will exhibit his work in UK and the first time Camilo Rios (RioCam) will exhibit outside of the US,” organizers note, adding that photographer Gered Mankowitz and Royal Portrait artist Christian Furr will unveil unique collaborative artwork they have created for the event.

In addition to traditional artwork, art cars, rare classic cars, prototypes and racing cars will be displayed as works of art.

Organizers said 10 percent of all sales revenue from the event will go to UNICEF UK to support the Global COVAX facility, which hopes to deliver 2 billion doses of the Covid-19 vaccine by the end of 2021. Donations to that effort also are accepted.

Sleeping with Art apparently takes its name from the fact that there are accommodations on the Lenore Estate for 36 people to reside on the grounds there during the show weekend.
