Art Center Morro Bay
835 Main St
Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present Zentangle© with certified instructor, Debbie Gedayloo. The Zentangle Method© of mindful creation is a way to relax, focus and expand one’s imagination. Through guided systematic patterns, students learn to trust their creativity, increase awareness, respond confidently to the unexpected and discover the fun and healing in creative expression. Incorporating a practice of Zentangle© allows for increased neuroplasticity and youthfulness in the brain. Anyone can feel successful and confident with the practice. If you can write the letters: I, C, S, O…you can follow the patterns. The underlying theories and systematic approach in the Zentangle Method© allow the participants to quiet the mind and focus, one stroke at a time. Debbie has practiced the art of Zentangle© for four years stating, “Often when sitting in meditation, I simply can’t quiet my mind and I bounce all over the place in my head. But, when I put the pen to the Zentangle© tile, the outside stimuli fade away and my entire being becomes quiet.” Debbie believes in the healing potential of this method and is excited to teach others how to tap into the hidden wisdom in each of us! Zentangle© is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result. Join certified Zentangle© instructor, Debbie Gedayloo for monthly, celebratory and meditative art. First time students are provided Zentangle© bag, pen, pencil, tortillon, tiles and instructions and extras.

Leather Tooling

Leather Tooling

Art Center Morro Bay
835 Main St
Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration of Leather Tooling by local craftsman, Finn Hansen. Tooling leather is the process of cutting into the leather to create shapes and designs. It’s a lot easier than you'd think, and the results can be beautiful! Tooled leather items often include, purses, belts, saddles, or just about anything made from leather. A variety of tools are used to achieve different designs. The designs on tooled leather range from the simple to the ornate. Some designs are part of an artistic tradition in many nations. Elaborate stars, flowers, curves, wildlife and initials are a few of the designs you can make, tooling leather. Finn Hansen became interested in leather crafting while attending Junior High School.

Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a workshop, Dyeing Silk Scarves with Sharon Gellerman. Sharon Gellerman is a local artist who creates one-of-a-kind, hand-marbled, silk scarves and silk tallits. Sharon has a fresh and modern interpretation of the classical art of marbling on fabric. Through experimentation with color, technique and dye, she has refined her style and designs. Her sense of art has been greatly influenced by memories of Israel and her love of the California Coast. These elements are reflected in the intricate patterns and vibrant colors of her textile designs. These complex designs and skillful use of color make each scarf or tallit a unique and wearable piece of art. Marbled silk scarves are made by layering colorful dyes onto a solution of water and cellulose. This process allows the dyes to float above the liquid. Using custom made combs or rakes, the layers of color are then manipulated into unique designs. When the fabric is placed on top of the composition and absorbs the dye colors, it transfers onto the silk scarf, creating the marbling affect. If you’ve ever wanted to make your own hand-dyed silk scarf or just want to see how it’s done, this is the workshop for you.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present, From Natural to Abstraction, an open, all media exhibit and Pottery by Jim Gregory. Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be slight, partial, or complete, as abstraction in art exists along a continuum. Even art that aims for realism of the highest degree can be said to be abstract since perfect representation may be elusive. Concurrent with this exhibit, MBAA is proud to feature, fine artist, Jim Gregory. Jim earned a Bachelor of Art degree at Gambling State University where he became Gambling’s “White Tiger”, the first quarterback at a predominantly all black school. “I feel fortunate to have been a small part of the Civil Rights Movement of the late 60’s and early 70’s. This was a positive experience for me.” Jim went on to earn a Master’s degree at Oregon College of Education, now Western Oregon State University. Jim returned to the Central Valley to teach pottery at Reedley High School for 33 years and at Reedley Jr. College for 26 years as an adjunct faculty member. Jim relocated to the Central Coast where he makes pottery that is masterfully produced with horse hair for beautiful earth tones to raku with vibrant color. Come in to explore these stunning artworks that are both decorative and functional! This exhibit celebrates artistic expression in all media. You will find a variety of subject matter spanning nature to total abstract. “From Natural to Abstraction” and Pottery by Jim Gregory will be on display from April 4 through May 13, 2019. Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, April 7, 2019, 2pm-4pm. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration in tempera batik painting by award winning artist, Julie Dunn. Tempera batik is a style of painting that was developed to resemble true batik without the use of fabric, wax or dyes. Batik is an Indonesian word that means “to dot.” To create her work, Dunn creates a line drawing on colored paper with a permanent black marker pen. The entire painting is painted with several layers of tempera paint, without painting over the marker pen lines. Ancient Egyptians and Indians used this resist process, but today it is used around the world. Dunn’s unique style is characterized by a vivid use of color and a contrast between realism and the abstract. Before relocating to the Central Coast, Dunn taught overseas where she experienced a variety of cultures and artistic styles that influence her current work. Dunn said this is a process oriented style of painting that can bring, truly wonderful, interesting and more importantly, unexpected results. Tempera batik provides a unique vehicle of interpretation with the use of vibrant color. Julie earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from California State University Fullerton and a Professional Clear Single Subject Teaching Credential from National University, Bakersfield, CA. If you’re interested in making a move toward tempera batik in your own work, this is a great opportunity to see firsthand how one artist begins and moves through this artistic process.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a lecture and video presentation of stone carving, by award winning artist, Carl Berney. This informative lecture will reveal the principal process that even a novice will appreciate and understand. Various mediums, materials and the use of tools will also be discussed. Carl enjoys the translucency that gives marble sculpture a visual depth beyond its surface that evokes a certain realism when used for figurative work. He also works with alabaster, limestone and bronze. These figurative sculptors that include felines and the abstract, address both the sensual and the spiritual. Carl studied sculpture in Pietrasanta Italy, near ancient quarries that had been opened up by Michelangelo. This experience inspired Carl to further his education and branch out into other mediums to include wood, plaster, plastic, terra cotta and bronze. Carl’s fine art sculptures are in collections throughout the United States. If you’ve wondered how to begin sculpting as an art form or would just like to see how it’s done, please join us for this interesting and informative lecture and video presentation.

The Zentangle Method© of mindful creation is a way to relax, focus and expand one’s imagination. Through guided systematic patterns, students learn to trust their creativity, increase awareness, respond confidently to the unexpected and discover the fun and healing in creative expression. Incorporating a practice of Zentangle© allows for increased neuroplasticity and youthfulness in the brain. Anyone can feel successful and confident with the practice. If you can write the letters: I, C, S, O…you can follow the patterns. The underlying theories and systematic approach in the Zentangle Method© allow the participants to quiet the mind and focus, one stroke at a time. Debbie has practiced the art of Zentangle© for five years stating, “Often when sitting in meditation, I simply can’t quiet my mind and I bounce all over the place in my head. But, when I put the pen to the Zentangle© tile, the outside stimuli fade away and my entire being becomes quiet.” Debbie believes in the healing potential of this method and is excited to teach others how to tap into the hidden wisdom in each of us! Zentangle© is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result.

FALL EXCURSION September 21, 2019 Bruce Munro - Field of Light Installation Description: Morro Bay Art Associations is proud to present a Fall Excursion to the Field of Light Installation of Bruce Munro in Paso Robles. British artist Bruce Munro is best known for immersive large-scale light-based installations inspired largely by his interest in shared human experience. San Luis Obispo THE TRIBUNE (September 25th, 2018) reports: Starting this winter, crews will begin re vegetating a portion of the [Sensorio] property. In the spring, a Field of Light installation by artist Bruce Munro will go on display. The Field of Light, which features an array of multicolored flower-like lights, has been installed at sites around the world, including several spots in the United States. Hunter hopes to open the art installation in May, complete with food trucks and temporary tents to provide visitors with refreshments. The Field of Light is a temporary piece of art and will be on display for two years, he said. “We’re very fortunate to have this caliber of art installation,” DeCarli said. We will board a luxury tour bus the evening of September 21, 2019 in Morro Bay and travel to Sensorio, an elaborate garden and art attraction formerly known as Discovery Gardens, located on Highway 46 East between Airport and Dry Creek roads. The project is reminiscent of the famed Butchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia. We will have plenty of time to view the astonishing light installation featuring works ranging in scale from immersive to intimate. Similar installations in California have been described as multi-hues waves, clusters, cascades, flocks and seas of illumination, transforming the area into a breathtaking spectacle of light. You can see other installation done by Bruce Munro at (www.brucemunro.co.uk/installations/field-of-light/) Pre-registration is required.

Art Center Morro Bay
835 Main St
Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a Documentary Film, "Exit Through the Gift Shop". An amusing, engrossing look at underground art. This British documentary film, is about and directed by Bansky, an infamous and shadowy graffiti, street artist. It tells the story of Thierry Guetta, a French immigrant in Los Angeles, who runs a vintage clothing shop, and his obsession with street art, and Guetta's eventual fame as a street artist himself, dubbed Mr. Brainwash. The film charts Guetta's constant documentation on film, of his every waking moment. It portrays a chance encounter with his cousin, French, urban artist, nic named Invader, to his introduction to a host of street artists, with a focus on Shepard Fairey and Banksy. Banksy’s anonymity is preserved by obscuring his face and altering his voice. Rhys Ifans narrates an overlapping documentary where the line between what is real and what might be fake blurs as modern art and celebrity are put under the microscope. The film premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2010, and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Since its release, there has been extensive debate over whether the documentary is genuine or a mockumentary. Banksy is a graffiti artist with a global reputation whose work can be seen on walls from post-hurricane New Orleans to the separation barrier on the Palestinian West Bank. He fiercely guards his anonymity to avoid prosecution. He rose to prominence for his provocative stenciled pieces in the late 1990s. Balloon Girl, the image of a young girl letting go of her balloon suggests that innocence can easily be lost. Banksy is known to mock society and he implies through his artwork that society makes children grow old too fast. The stencil is originally accompanied by the sentence “There is always hope”, a positive message which suggests that no matter what happens there is always a hope for better days.

Giselle grew up in Los Osos, where the Central Coast became a constant source of inspiration for her work. Her love of creativity and self expression blossomed into an art filled passion. Childhood summers spent outdoors in barefoot freedom have forever bonded her to the surrounding ecosystem. Perhaps it’s no surprise that the same plants and flowers she enjoyed during her childhood, are a recurring theme in her work. “One of my passions is to bring art into everyday moments of life with functional ceramics like mugs, planters, and bowls. I carve and texture nearly every piece I make, often leaving portions of clay bare as a part of the design to be enjoyed by hands as well as eyes”. During this demonstration, Giselle will engage participants in a lively discussion about ways to find inspiration in our environment, and share the process of her intricately carved designs and inlaid glazes.

To learn how to paint means to learn how to see.” Frick is represented by New Masters Gallery, Carmel CA, Sunset Art Gallery, Amarillo, TX, Evergreen Fine Art Gallery, Evergreen CO, Bebb Fine Art, Ludlow, England and Galerie See Motive, Konstanz, Germany.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present International, plein air artist and instructor, Guido Frick. Guido Frick was born in Konstanz, Germany and studied art in Prague Czechoslovakia. Professor Emeritus Dr. Janos Herczeg; University of Szeged, Hungary, refers to Frick as the “living” Bongart. Mr. Frick teaches his Impressionistic style throughout Europe and America’s western states. Capturing the mood, with oil and watercolor, he approaches each subject with bold and vigorous brushwork, using brilliant color. Frick relays, “As a painter I do not like to be labeled. I am always crossing the borderline between Impressionism and Expressionism. In art there should be no borders, no fences, no stop signs. To learn how to paint means to learn how to see.” Frick is represented by New Masters Gallery, Carmel CA, Sunset Art Gallery, Amarillo, TX, Evergreen Fine Art Gallery, Evergreen CO, Bebb Fine Art, Ludlow, England and Galerie See Motive, Konstanz, Germany. Frick has been featured in numerous periodicals and magazines throughout Europe and the U.S. to include, Art Journey America Landscapes: 89 Painters’ Perspectives by Kathy Kipp, Maler sehen den Bodensee: 200 Jahre Landschaftsmalerei aus privatem Besitz by Carlo Karrenbauer, Southwest Art, American Artist Workshop, Art of the West, Art Talk, Western Art Collector Magazine and Oil Painting with the Masters by North Light Books. During this workshop, Guido will teach you how to interpret and translate what you are seeing to a canvas and develop your own artistic language. He will discuss the use of colors, values, mood, drama and atmosphere while painting outdoors. Day 1: Students will be work on a still-life of choice, while painting outdoors to capture the complexity of color working in sunlight.

2020 Portraits in Pastel

2020 Portraits in Pastel

Art Center Morro Bay

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present award winning artist, Cuong Nguyen for a three-day workshop, “Portraits in Pastel”. A professional artist of international acclaim, Cuong Nguyen, works in both oil and pastel, though casual viewers may have difficulty distinguishing the two media in his hands. He almost never blends strokes, yet achieves a level of detail and smoothness of gradation that is unusual in pastel paintings! Mr. Nguyen studied at the Academy of Art in Saigon, Vietnam. He earned a degree in Illustration & Graphic Design from San Jose State University and established a successful career as an icon designer with a prominent Silicon Valley company before becoming a professional artist. Ultimately, Cuong’s passion for art resurfaced. He began to create sidewalk chalk drawings. These ephemeral artworks were as large as 16' x 24'. Cuong soon established a reputation for painting amazingly lifelike portraits on asphalt. He began to exhibit in international art fairs and returned to his studio, where he spent endless hours refining techniques with more traditional media. Cuong Nguyen is a member of Oil Painters of America, International Guild of Realism, a Distinguished Pastellist with Pastel Society of America and Pastel Society of the West Coast, Master Pastelist with Pastel of America and Master IAPS Circle with International Association of Pastel Societies. His work has been exhibited at national and international exhibits; the Triton Museum in Santa Clara, California and the Haggin Museum in Stockton. Cuong is currently represented by John Pence gallery in San Francisco, California. Learn about drawing, values, edges and composition, in a workshop designed to create in a relaxed, informative yet focused environment, for all skill levels. Students will concentrate on drawing the human head and creating life-like skin tone colors using the green foundation technique, while developing new skills in soft pastel and pastel pencil. This workshop will feature live models.
