2020 Schedule


Revised: September 23, 2020.

After 40 years traveling the US, painting on motorcycles for dealers and customers at rallies and dealerships
 in more than 40 different states, I do most of my artwork today at my studio in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.  

Many customers will ride their bikes here, get their artwork done and ride around our beautiful, windy, mountain roads.  
Others will bring their bikes in a trailer and many more will simply mail the parts here for custom artwork and stripes.

I do not have the opportunity to attend many events anymore, as there is plenty of work here at home.
I am often asked why I am not at a certain event any longer.
Some of the major events are listed below if you want to read further down for more details.

I am available by appointment at the Scarecrow Art Studio in Bryson City, NC.
Come here in person for custom, one-on-one service or send me your parts to be painted.

My wife and I also own an Inn on the property (www.CalhounHouse.com) with the Art Studio.
We offer special discounts for Scarecrow customers if you need a place to stay while you are here.

Daytona Bike Week

Daytona, Florida

I set up and painted a lot of bikes at Daytona all thru the 80s, 90s and early 2000s.
I worked outside Miller's in South Daytona during the early years.  
Bikes would be parked along US 1 for miles.  
Today Miller's is gone totally.  
In the late 90s, I moved over to the HOG vendor tent at the Ocean Center.  
HOG had an invitation only vendor tent and, just like Miller's, we stayed very busy.  
Today the HOG vendor tent is gone also.  
When HOG shut down the HOG vendor tent, I tried several other locations but, 
unfortunately, as the crowds in Daytona dwindled, the vendor fees did not.  

Sadly, I no longer attend this rally as a vendor.  Sad because I love Florida!

This event is canceled for 2020. Check back in 2021.

Sturgis 2020

I painted bikes at the Sturgis/Black Hills Rally for 22 years.
I worked in the HOG Vendor tent in Rapid City at the Civic Center for 13 years, thru the 90s and 2000s.  
One year HOG moved the HOG Vendor tent from behind the Civic Center to other side of the building.  
It took some people 2 years to realize we were still at the same venue.  
That is the main problem with relocating at the Black Hills Rally.
 There is a 50 mile radius of vendor locations around Sturgis.
When you change locations at Sturgis, it takes time for your existing customers to find your new location.
When HOG shut down the HOG Vendor tent I had an invitation to relocate to 3 Forks in Hill City, SD.
Eventually people realized this was my new and current location and I worked at this venue for another 9 years.
Unfortunately 1 of the 2 owners had an accident and went into a coma.
His son, our contact person for the vendor mall, was shut out of the business and the vendor mall.
There is too much uncertainty here now and I am too old to try to establish a new location again.
So unfortunately, as a result, I have stopped setting up at the Sturgis Rally.
Sturgis is one of the few rallies that still draws big crowds and we love the Black Hills, but it is what it is.
I do not expect to be painting at the Sturgis/Black Hills Rally anytime in the future.
Thank you to all the hundreds of customers who supported me while I was there.
Happy 80th!
