RECEPTION: Sunday, April 7, 2-4pm

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.

The group will then travel to the Painted Rock Parking Lot and hike approximately two thirds of a mile to Painted Rock. Although the path does not have a significant change in elevation, it is not handicapped accessible.
Painted Rock, a large U-shaped rock, features what was once an elaborate, multicolored pictograph site created by the Chumash, a Native American people who historically inhabited the coastal regions of California. Time spent within the Painted Rock alcove may be limited or canceled to protect prairie falcons or other nesting birds.

Not surprisingly, the power of this location, with it’s historical, Native American Pictographs, continues to enthrall visitors today.

Visitors will then re-board the tour van, traveling approximately thirty minutes to the studio of Jan Cooper, where lunch will be served. Guests may enjoy an opportunity to make sketches or photograph the beautiful Carrizo Plain!

Wear comfortable walking shoes and layered clothing. No cell service is available on the Carrizo Plain. Hiking portion of tour is not handicapped accessible. For additional information, email Gail Martin: gailm1314@gmail.com or call 805-234-8766.

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.

This bi-weekly oil painting class is a 10 month course through November, beginning with drawing techniques and progressing through black and white, limited palette to full palette.

All levels of ability and experience are welcome.

Each class consists of a video lesson and 3 reference images (a landscape, portrait and still life) that are emailed before the class at Morro Bay Art Center. The student can choose to paint one or all of the reference images or work from their own reference. Class time is spent painting with direction and feedback from Jason. Following the class another video will be delivered, Friday Feedback where we look at a students work and see how the lesson might be applied to make the painting even more beautiful. Each lesson/block ends with Monday Morning Inspiration (video emailed) where a master painting is examined and broken down to give the artist ideas of how the lesson was used to create that masterpiece.

The reference images are the same images for both lessons/blocks in that month. This allows the artist time to develop a painting. We ask for students to please sign up ahead of time so that the reference images and video lesson may be sent out before class time.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration in, The Art of Fiber and Spinning with Nancy Weber.

Hand-spinning is the art of twisting fiber, fleece, or roving of wool, silk, alpaca, angora, mohair, flax, etc. into a continuous thread by using a spinning wheel or drop spindle. Handspun yarn is used for knitting and weaving projects. By using a hackle, a steel comb that separates flax fibers, you can layer colors together before pulling through a diz and spinning. Blending boards are also used as a layering or mixing board. Blending boards are work well for creating layers of fiber and color to create interesting effects in the finished yarn.

Nancy is an accomplished instructor of twenty-two years, designing and creating unique apparel with a large variety of hand-spun fiber. During this demonstration, she will show you how to use a Hackle or Blending Board to create roving into yarn of unique and difficult to find colors. Nancy will give you a hands on experience using her spinning wheel to create yarn.

RECEPTION: Sunday, May 19, 2019, 2pm–4pm

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present a compelling exhibit, Born in the USA.

Immigration has been a touchstone of the U.S. political debate for decades. Even as most Americans celebrate their heritage and identity as a “nation of immigrants”, there seems to be a deep ambivalence about future immigration. Despite the complex issues surrounding the struggle of asylum, assimilation and deportation, increasing numbers of people continue to risk emotional and physical heartbreak for the opportunity to live a safer and better life by migrating to America. In some cases, the human toll mounts as men, women and children quietly disappear from the dessert landscape in pursuit of the “American Dream”.

Whether we are direct descendants of an immigrant or an immigrant ourselves, in the current climate, socially and politically, this subject is more relevant than ever.

Artists were invited to illustrate their personal concepts of the human struggle by confronting issues of immigration, or celebrate our great country’s vast ethnic and cultural diversity with art.

Art doesn’t just reflect the world — it engages with it.

This exhibit may depict scenes that some viewers find disturbing and not suitable for children.

During this event, we are please to feature the art of Barry Lundgren!

Barry has been woodturning for over twenty years. Although he has taken workshops from other respected and admired woodturners, Barry considers himself to be self taught. His inspiration is derived from the wood, itself. The shape of each piece is as important as the type of wood he finds. Every piece different in color, texture, scent and character. Barry states, “Some pieces are turned green and I find it fascinating how they warp and distort into finished pieces.”

Barry rough-turns lidded boxes, threaded urns, and salad bowls, then allows them to dry and stabilize. Artworks are remounted and turned to finish their shape then left to dry, staying symmetrical. “Whether they are the classical shapes from the past or the natural-edge pieces that warp into their own shape, my goal is to make them all pleasing to the eye and touch.”


Born in the USA is on display from May 16 through June 24, 2019. Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, May 19, 2019, 2pm–4pm. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily.

Art Center Morro Bay

Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

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.

Reception: Sunday, June 30, 2-4pm

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present, The Morros, a collection of paintings in all media and styles that capture the color and energy of Morro Rock and sister formations.

This event is a celebration of the Nine Sisters or the Morros, a chain of volcanic mountains and hills that span east from Morro Bay, through San Luis Obispo County. Locals will debate whether there are seven sisters or nine in this family of geological formations. In fact, there may be more than fifteen peaks belonging to this string of volcanic plugs.

During this exhibit, Art Center Morro Bay will feature glass sculptor, George Jercich. George’s characteristic, hand blown glass sculptures, capture the spirit of Morro Bay and the Central Coast. George graduated from San Jose State University in 1984 with his MFA in Sculpture/Plastic Arts. He travelled throughout the USA, Europe and Asia seeking experiences in glass. He attended Pilchuck Glass School, the Interglas Symposium in Novy Bor, Czechoslovakia, participated in American/Thai Cultural Exchange Programs and co-instructed glassblowing at Ox-Bow Summer School of the Arts (SAIC). George, a member of Central Coast Sculptor Group(CCSG), is also the co-founder of the California Glass Exchange. George instructed glassblowing, glass forming, 3D design and sculpture courses at Cal Poly for over 35 years.

The Morros will be on display from June 27 through August 5, 2019. Meet the artists at the opening reception on Sunday, June 30, 2pm-4pm. This event is free and open to the public.

Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily.

Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration of working with tiles to create mosaic garden stepping stones, wall hangings, trivets or repurposed furniture with mosaic tops.
Mosaics are works of art created by using glass or ceramic tiles and grout to make a picture. They date as far back as 1500 BC and are all over the world. Mosaics adorn the ceilings in cathedrals with elaborate details or they can be found in a simple pattern on stepping stones in your gardens. With practice, you can create a custom mosaic all your own.
Anne Hodges and Paula Hulet owners of Cracked Up Mosaic will be here to teach you step by step instructions in the creation of mosaics. Anne has worked in calligraphy and stained glass, focusing on mosaics for the last 10 years. She is a retired Montessori teacher and former owner of Bay Osos Montessori School in Los Osos. Paula has previously worked with fabric and decoupage but her love of gardening led her to collaborate with Anne creating beautiful mosaic pieces for her own garden and the community garden at Estero Bay United Methodist Church in Morro Bay where Paula Hulet is the Pastor.
During this demonstration attendees will learn how to design and create a mosaic stepping stone. How to select materials, lay out a pleasing pattern, adhere the tiles to the base, and apply mortar and grouting.
Join us, just in time for gardening season, for great ideas and techniques to spruce up your outdoors!

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present Thru the Lens II. This juried exhibition is a collection of fine art photography, featuring gifted photographers throughout the Central Coast.

Judge of Awards:

We are fortunate to have photographer and instructor, Brady Cabe as judge for this celebrated event. Brady is a seasoned photographer who enjoys the outdoors. With both feet and tripod in the water, he captures wildlife, a sunset, or the Milky Way late into the night. His passion for photographing the night sky overflows into summertime astrophotography.

Brady’s passion for photography has grown into sharing with others through astrophotography, sunset, and wildlife photography workshops. Teaching has caused Brady to reverse engineer everything he does. This process has guided his curriculum into simplified, step by step processes that make photography accessible for every skill level.
Brady states, “I’m a nature and landscape photographer based on the Central Coast of California, with a passion for sharing. I’m a bird nerd, a seal whisperer, a half marathon finisher, poker shark, Milky Way fanatic, and lover of chocolate.”
Featured 3D Artist:

Giselle Massey grew up in Los Osos, CA., 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”.

Whether you are attending this remarkable exhibit to observe or to purchase, you are in for a delight! Thru the Lens II, an exhibit of fine art photography will be on display from August 8, through September 16, 2019. The opening reception is Aug 11, 2019, 2-4pm. This event is free and open to the public.

Zentangle© Demonstration

Zentangle© Demonstration

Sep 9, 3:00pm - Sep 9, 5:00pm

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

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration of 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 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. Join certified Zentangle© instructor, Debbie Gedayloo for monthly, celebratory and meditative art.

If you are looking for a calming artwork that anybody can do and you've wondered how it's done, don't miss this free event.

WHAT: Annual Juried Exhibition

RECEPTION: Sunday, September 22, 2019, 2-4pm
WHERE: Art Center Morro Bay, 835 Main Street, Morro Bay, CA 93442

This juried event is a collective of exceptional paintings spanning the United States. Many of the artists are internationally acclaimed. In addition, MBAA will feature the three dimensional art of Guyla Amyx.

We are fortunate to have award winning artist, Dennis Curry, as the judge for this celebrated event.

Judge of Awards:

Dennis Curry is a professional artist of international fame. Dennis served in the United States Army, 25th Infantry Division’s Combat Artists program in 1966 where he documented combat experiences from an artist’s perspective.

Upon returning to the U.S., Dennis attended Santa Monica College where he learned original printmaking. He traveled to East Africa and co-founded Duma Safaris with a friend and publisher, Christopher Law. This life changing experience afforded him the pleasure of introducing others to the great game areas that forever influenced his love of nature.

Following an introduction to the contemporary printmaking of Mylar Lithography, he founded Blue Berry Press, located in Cambria, CA., later becoming known for his work in the traditional, intaglio mediums of etching and engraving. Later, moving away from printmaking and wildlife, Dennis began working in the more traditional medium of oil painting to capture the light and color of the landscapes on location and in the studio.

Dennis has significantly contributed to conservation work around the world and his graphics are widely collected nationally and internationally.

Dennis relayed, “While much art of the past has dealt with the glories and follies of humankind, I feel a need to portray nature for its own sake with the hope of promoting value and respect for our unique planet and the varied form of life with which we share it.”

Dennis is a current member of Society of Animal Artists, Artists for Conservation and San Luis Outdoor Painters for the Environment.
Guest Artist:�During this special event, we are proud to present the ceramic artwork of Guyla Amyx.
Guyla earned a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Eastern Washington University and a Master of Tine Art degree from Washington University. Guylas was a tenured professor at Cuesta Community College where she taught ceramic art for over 22 years and served eight years as the department chair.
Guyla’s early style of ceramics leaned toward the figurative, using brightly colored surfaces, geometric patterns and shapes. Her approach to working with clay involved a raw and spontaneous quality. Later during her tenure as professor, Guyla explored a renewed interest in the Cone 10 Reduction process that she shared with her students. Much of her work is reflective of this process. Guyla states, “You may see a more refined and meditative quality to my recent creations with carved porcelain and crystalline glazing, reflective of my exploration in yoga and Eastern philosophy.”
This exhibit celebrates the three dimensional work of Guyla Amyx and two dimensional, art work in all media of those artists accepted into this extraordinary exhibit. You will find a variety of subject matter spanning traditional landscape to contemporary and abstract. Whether you are attending this exhibit to observe or to purchase, you are in for a delight! Morro Bay Art Association’s Annual Juried Exhibit will be on display from September 19 through October 29, 2019.
A “meet the artists” opening reception, will be held, Sunday, September 22, 2019, 2-4pm. This event is free and open to the public.

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. Refunds will be given for cancellations made seven days prior to excursion with the exception of a $20.00 non-refundable, registration fee.

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.

Enjoy popcorn and a movie with us!

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration in ceramics, in Finding Inspiration in Whatever You Love by Giselle Massey.

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.

If you’ve wondered how to create functional ceramics that are beautiful too, don’t miss this opportunity to see how it’s done!

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

May 2020

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.

Abstract Acrylic Painting Techniques
Abstract workshop

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present esteemed artist, Diane Williams & Chuck Potter for a two-day workshop, Mark Making – Developing Your Signature Style in Abstract Painting.

Diane Williams and Chuck Potter both hold Master of Fine Art degrees in Studio Art and Consciousness studies from John F Kennedy University, Berkeley, California. Additionally, both have studied at the University of Hangzhou China, incorporating calligraphy, traditional Chinese landscape painting and Chinese medicine with their western art practices.
Diane and Chuck were adjunct professors for National University and have mentored graduate students from John F Kennedy, University. They also have an extensive exhibition list.
Their works can be found in corporate, public, and personal collections nationally and worldwide.
Mark making is as distinctive as your fingerprint, adding a personal touch to your painting. Marks can energize a painting or highlight movement, texture or direction. In this 2-day workshop you will practice abstract acrylic painting techniques that are enhanced by your personal mark making. Feeling stuck, or that something personal or dynamic is missing in your painting? This class is designed to help you develop your signature style by identifying your personal and unique marks.
Venture with us into the realm of self-expression by identifying your own unique style. We will be exploring a variety of techniques using water soluble pencils, Sumi ink, charcoal, sticks, scrapers, and other mark making tools. We will also use stencils, stamping, special patinas and other applications to create multi-dimensional layering effects adding depth and visual interest. The results are alive, authentic and exhilarating. Unveil the mysteries of abstraction by practicing techniques in form, rhythm and motion. Each student will receive individual instruction and group critique.
This workshop is appropriate for beginning to intermediate artists.
