The tail end of August, 29th, to Sept. 1st 2008: ASET, the number one distributor of Anest Iwata products in North America, put on their Fifth 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. To start out the event, the artists started working on their respective display pieces during the workshops. As each instructor rotated through the roster of workshops, the remaining instructors would help out as roaming assistants in the workshop area, or working on their display projects. This year hosted a record number of artist/instructors with the following in attendance: Steve Vandemon, Steve Driscoll, Deborah Mahann, Bob Soroka, Dean Loucks, Jason Doll, Fonzy, Paul Quinn, Gerald Mendez, Bonz, Ron Gibbs, Mike Lavallee, Pamela Shanteau, and your's truly Craig Fraser. The newest artist to attend, and give demos, was Brian Pappas. 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, SW Planet Color, Dupont Hot Hues, PPG Vibrance, and Anest Iwata. With 15 artist instructing, and over 75 students in attendance for the three day workshop series, it was a killer event. Last years car show that Bill Williams, and ASET put on was amazing. While the outside car show got rained out this year, we still had a killer after party indoors. Check out the pics below, and make sure to attend next year. As a matter of fact, you might want to check the events calendar at www.asetusa.com for the upcoming East Coast, and Southern Air Affairs that are currently being scheduled! By the way.
