The week after SEMA, Nov. 9th-12th: ASET, the number one distributor of Anest Iwata products in North America, put on their third annual Open House/Kustom Paint workshop at their state of the art training facility in SLC, Utah. Called the "Air Affair", this is not your average open house, they boasted a Hands-On Kustom Paint Workshop that would rival any currently in the industry. The event started on Wed with the official open house showing off the training facility, and top of the line $250,000 spray booth system. The artists started working on their respective display pieces during the open house, as guests were given a tour of the facilities, and fed catered gourmet appetizers, with an open bar throughout the nite. This year hosted a record number of artist/instructors with the following in attendance: Steve Vandemon, Steve Driscoll, Deborah Mahann, Bob Soroka, Dennnis Mathewson, Dean Loucks, Jason Doll, Fonzy, Abel, Mike Lavallee, and your's truly Craig Fraser. The newest artists to attend, and give demos, were Bonz, Ron Gibbs, Paul Quinn, and Gerald Mendez. This event continues to attract new talent, and next years list is already filling up. Some of the manufacturers in attendance that sponsored the event, demonstrated, and sold new products were: Medea/Iwata, Artool, Planet Color, Dupont Hot Hues, PPG Vibrance, and Anest Iwata. With 15 artist instructing, and a record 100 students in attendance for the three day workshop series, it out did the previous 2 shows, and is definitely a landmark event in kustom painting.. Check out the pics below, and keep a space on your calendar for next year to attend. A number of this years attendees have already reserved their space, and since this year sold out a good three months before the show, you should start making plans now. See you there next year!
