Having just dropped a few bucks for a few art car repairs (no regrets!), I decided to flip through various service documents to get a feel for what upcoming service may be required.
It seems beyond, of course, Portland artist Tom Cramer painting the car, the car may have crossed the path of another Portland artist. One of the service documents was a 2004 “consumer pre-purchase inspection” with the name “Anna Fidler” on it, could it be the same Anna Fidler who has had several shows at Pulliam Deffenbaugh? This would have been one year before she received her MFA from Portland State.
I wrote about Anna’s recent opening in my June 1st thur posting:
Anna Fidler’s show rocked. They didn’t want me taking images so I’ll just point to “Theory of Levitation” which I really enjoyed and suggest you just go and stand in front of for a while.
It looks like the she didn’t buy the car as the owners at that time latter did the repairs that were indicated on the pre-purchase inspection form.
I’m still not sure if it is the same Anna, but it would be a fun little twist of art car history.
