Gloria Jones Hacker
A professional artist (BA Fine Arts, BS Art Education) Gloria’s styles and media choices are as varied and universal as her clientele. Examples can be seen in her work for the Concours – from modern yet art-deco look of the event’s official logo to the classical, fine art styling’s of the oil-on-canvas painting.
Owner of the Art Studio, Gloria does both privately commission fine art works and contract work for commercial customers. A brief list of her clients includes Lincoln-Mercury, McDonalds, Mead, and countless other private, business, and government accounts.
Her enthusiasm for her Cars as Art Collection reflects her lifelong love of cars – from her college car, a very open-air TR3 – to her first work car, a British racing green MGB-GT to her recent ticket-inducing BMW M Roadster.
She has displayed her work at numerous Concours d’Elegance, notably the Barrington in Chicago and as the featured artist at the Dayton Concours and most recently at the legendary Pinehurst, the home of golf in America.
Her thoughts on working on the Dayton Concours d’ Elegance at Carillon Park:
“It is easy to appreciate the great fun I had working on this: chrome, glass, polished metal, architecture, and landscape all in one! My goals were to capture the wonderful detail and elegance of those 1957 cars the committee chose to feature that year and to integrate an artistic expression of the charm and ambiance of Carillon Park itself.”
…And on the Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance:
“When I walked the Pinehurst golf course for the first time, I was captivated by the majestic pines, and their distinctive silhouettes. Deep shadows and complex light patterns played on the grass all through the rolling greens. When I imagined adding classic cars and their reflections of this great beauty, the Concours poster idea was complete. Their elegant club house was a perfect complement to the design. I enjoyed oil painting every inch of this poster; the dramatic location, the compelling angles and enchanting light. The quiet captures the moment.”
