Rustic Steel Creations * Red Door No. 5
Red Door No.5, a beautiful venue space located in historic Tampa Heights Fire Station No. 5, was originally constructed in 1925 and decommissioned as an active fire station in 1986. The building has been restored and renovated to its former glory. The two-story, 6500 square foot building, is home to a 2000 square foot gallery, a five-story bell tower with sweeping 360-degree views of the city, a rooftop deck, and an open-air courtyard. Red Door No.5 is an authentic and breathtaking venue unlike any other in the Tampa Bay area. From weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, to film and commercial set locations, Red Door No. 5 is an unforgettable space to host your next event and to create new memories.
The gallery boasts nearly 2,000 square feet of exhibition space, and features rotating artists on a monthly basis.
Rustic Steel Creations is where the artist genius is created.
Lory Lockwood will display her works of art on Friday and Saturday, as well as donating a piece of art for the Friday Night "Cars in the Park" Charity Auction.
Lory Lockwood is an artist who specializes in automobile and motorcycle fine art that she paints in a style called Photorealism. This contemporary style exudes a power of obsessive detail that focuses on chrome reflections, bright colors and abstract patterns.
Lockwood’s interests range from vintage, exotic and classic autos like Rolls Royce, Bentley, and Mercedes Benz to bikes such as Harley-Davidson, Gilera and custom choppers. Her exquisitely detailed oil paintings are inspired by visits to Daytona Bike Week, Laguna Seca Historic Races, Amelia Island and Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegances.
Car and motorcycle enthusiasts can also commission a personalized portrait from Lockwood.
