Nov. 6, 2019—According to, 35 pieces of art are on display in the Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Booth of the Las Vegas Convention Center at The SEMA Show this year. The display celebrates the painters of all stripes and colors—refinishers, pinstripe artists and airbrushers. 

The display features artwork by Steve Gibson, Joe Martin, Ryan Templeton, Darren Wenzel and many others that will be sold to the highest bidder at a silent auction. All proceeds support the Blazing Trails Scholarship Fund created by Larsen Motorsports in partnership with Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes.

"We're honored to be able to work with these painters throughout the year, and we're even more honored to share some of their best work with the world on the industry's biggest stage," says Rob Mowson, Vice President, Marketing, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Division.

The artists behind the 35 masterpieces—ranging in size from 9-ft by 6-ft to 18-inches by 30-inches—can be found here.

"These painters are internationally recognized. They are celebrated artists and most of them are instructors who share their knowledge and skill at the community college and technical trade school level," says Mowson. "Now they're sharing their best work with the hope that along with the other pieces, will raise enough funding to support students enrolling in automotive service and collision repair programs across the country."

Anyone can bid today through the close of The SEMA Show on Friday, Nov. 8, at 5:00 p.m. Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes has dedicated the silent auction at SEMA to the memory of former LMS and Matrix Automotive Finishes® Jet Car Driver Katrina "Kat" Moller (of Sarasota, FL).
