They don't make 'em like they used to. Maybe cars are more practical today, maybe they require less care, maybe they're safer; but where is the fender that whispers motion, where is the grille that cuts the air, where are the wheels with whitewalls as snazzy as this period Packard's?
They're helped, of course, by the carefully calculated composition of this black and white photograph, called "Wheels," by Richard Kaplan. It's one of Kaplan's works in the two-person show "Tones + Textures" at Art Matters gallery. The other artist is Judith Mensh, represented by abstract paintings created in the last half dozen years.
At Art Matters, Carding Building, Suite 103, Historic Savage Mill, 8600 Foundry St., Savage. 6: 30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through Jan. 15. Call (301) 404-8521.
