The Central Coast Watercolor Society is proud to present our annual juried Fall All-Member Watermedia Exhibition, hosted by Morro Bay Art Association – an exhibit of some of the best watermedia paintings by Central Coast artists. This year’s theme is “The Central Coast.”

Exhibition juror of selection and awards is Virginia Mack, a California native who has been living on the Central Coast for 15 years. She has been a part-time instructor at both Allan Hancock College and Cuesta College in their fine arts departments.

Mack has spent endless hours exploring the back roads of San Luis Obispo County, seeking those bits of landscape that are visually stimulating. She works primarily in watercolors and mixed media and is a colorist at heart. She builds most of her pieces in a wet-on-wet process (wet watercolor paints on wet watercolor paper) resolving the pieces as the paper slowly dries. She creates the forms with rich colors that she plays off against contrasting colors, thereby subduing them while preserving their presence in layers of color. She often mixes the watercolor process with work using colored pencils, pastel, charcoal, and pencil.

Don’t miss this special event! Whether you are attending this exhibit to observe or to find that perfect painting for yourself or as a gift, you are in for a delight.

The CCWS annual all-member watermedia exhibit will be on display August 8 – September 16, 2019.

Meet the artists at the opening reception, Sunday. August 11, 2019, 2-4 pm.

This event is free and open to the public.

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:

Featured 3D artists, 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.

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.

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.

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 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!

Debbie designed and painted a cow for the 2016 San Luis Obispo County Cow Parade and has participated in Imadonnari street painting festivals in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Temecula, Carlsbad, Laguna Niguel, Ventura and Prescott.

During this three-day workshop, Debbie will demonstrate a new twist on felting and fiber-painting. Students will be creating individual landscapes using wool, yarn, string, beads, shells and more. Landscapes as a topic, will allow for endless expression for each participant.

Quick Studies in Clay

Quick Studies in Clay

Nov 1, 1:00pm - Nov 1, 4:00pm

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

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a ½ day workshop, Quick Studies in Clay with Anne Grannis.

Anne will be teaching techniques to sculpt a whole figure, a torso, or a bas relief using water-based clay. This intense session will guide the beginning or advanced sculptor in the essence of figure sculpting, giving the student a spontaneous, emotional arena to work in; without the finishing details of a refined piece. We will be working from a live model.

Anne has been teaching and working with clay since she was a girl growing up in an artistic household of New England. She has taught ceramic workshops, stone carving and sculpture in Northern California areas; Fort Mason Art School, San Francisco and Half Moon Bay. She was the Artistic Council Chair of SFWA Gallery – Sculpture Representative. She’s taught Quick Studies in Clay in Half Moon Bay, Redwood City, and Palo Alto and now shares her knowledge with us in Morro Bay.

Anne says: “I often use natural clay, as it is an amazingly pliable medium with which to work and being a material originating eons ago, I can connect with the far past to create anything large and rough or small and detailed, with everything in between. My sense of whimsy prevails.”

Clay and tools will be provided. Please bring a 12” to 14” square board to work on and an apron. Bring your favorite tools or supplies if you have them. Firing of the art is the responsibility of the student, and/or you may work with the instructor outside of the workshop for firing.

Morro Bay Art Association is very excited to host watercolor classes designed for artists, beginner to advanced. Classes will be ongoing throughout the year, featuring a variety of guest instructors.

Each class is offered as a 3-day or 4-day (block style) course, spanning three to four weeks, held on Thursday mornings from 9am to 12pm.

Virginia Mack is a native Californian. She has been exploring and savoring the wild lands of the state throughout her life. She has been living on the Central Coast for 10 years. She is a part-time instructor at both Allan Hancock College and Cuesta College in the fine arts departments.

Virginia, along with her late husband John, also an artist, has spent endless hours exploring the back roads of San Luis Obispo County seeking those bits of landscape that are visually stimulating. Virginia works primarily in watercolors and mixed media and is a colorist at heart. She builds most of her pieces in a wet-on-wet process (wet watercolor paints on wet watercolor paper) resolving the pieces as the paper slowly dries. She creates the forms with rich colors that she plays off against contrasting colors thereby subduing them while preserving their presence in layers of color. She often mixes the watercolor process with work using colored pencils, pastel, charcoal, and pencil.

Virginia received her education in fine arts at the University of California, Berkeley. She has taken additional classes at The California College of Arts and Crafts and in independent workshops.

Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

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

Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a presentation of “The Healing Power of Art” with Anne Gill Kellogg.

Art therapy utilizes art media, images and the creative art process as reflections of an individual’s development, personality, interests, concerns, and conflicts. Art therapy practice, utilizing developmental and psychological theories, reconciles emotional conflicts, fosters self-awareness, problem solving, aids in reducing anxiety, reality orientation and increases self-esteem. It is practiced alongside other health programs and treatments.

Anne Gill Kellogg’s demo will include an introduction to the subject of “The Healing Power of Art” using visual aids, examples of Anne’s own work, drawings, and reference materials supporting the power of art.

Different types of art journalizing will be presented and explored. If you already have an art journal, bring it! Otherwise, bring in any sketch book you’d like to use to start your own art journal and any art materials you’d like to add. Some supplies will be available at the demo.

Anne Gill Kellogg attended Otis Art Institute and Art Center of Design, earned a Bachelor of Art in Psychology and Applied Art and earned a Masters degree from Loyola Marymount University in clinical art therapy/family therapy. She had a private practice for 21 years and taught 18 years at the elementary and at College level.

Join us for an interesting afternoon exploring this unique therapy. Lucia Capacchione, PH.D. and Art Therapist says, “Imagery is a window on your inner world…it is a means of transformation and liberation from distortions in this realm that may unconsciously direct your life and shape your health.”

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration of Junk and Vintage Journal Making with Colleen Ray.

A junk journal is typically made with craft supplies, recycled paper, junk mail and found materials. A vintage junk journal is made with items from bygone eras, or made to look like they are by applying aging techniques. Vintage journals are often created around a theme and filled with visual and tactile interest as opposed to stark, blank pages. The splashes of color, texture, pockets and tuck spots are filled with ephemera and create an inviting place to journal or draw,
or stash things away.

Colleen will demonstrate how to make a simple folio style journal with vintage appeal that participants can easily make at home to use as a travel journal, a gardening journal, an
affirmations journal, or art journal.

Join Colleen Ray as she shares these unique and wonderful journals. Each one, a work of art;
and as distinctive and one-of-a-kind as its maker.

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.

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.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to offer a presentation with Travel Photographer and Lecturer, Michael J. Costa.

Michael J. Costa first made the long the trek to the Mt. Everest Base Camp in 2016 and one year later returned to Nepal to explore the wonders of Annapurna and the Nagarkot region with
his camera. With images both awe-inspiring and down to earth, Costa captures the spirit of Nepal.

Whether you’re inspired by the great Himalaya mountain range, have a soul-searching experience in Buddhist or Hindu temples, or connect with the people that you meet along the journey, Costa says the adventure is unique for each traveler; determined by who you are and how you choose to engage with the experience.

“The images I captured along the way reflect the people and places I encountered, as well as the nature of my personal experience.” -Costa

Costa visually describes a journey that takes you to places like no others on earth. The rigorous hike to the base of Mt. Everest starts at 9,000 ft in Lukla, Nepal and brings you to the top of
Kalla Pathar at an elevation of 18,600 ft. The artist’s travels took him through different regions in this unique landscape – mountains and villages, plains and glaciers – as well refugee camps affected by the April 25, 2015 earthquake.

Michael J. Costa is a graduate of the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. He has worked as a photo journalist for the San Mateo Daily Journal and Sierra Star, and as a
videographer for Valley Public Television and Sierra Art Trails. Costa is represented by Stellar Gallery in Oakhurst, CA. He now splits his time between Oakhurst and Los Osos, CA

This exciting lecture demonstration will explore the grand vistas of the Himalayan landscape along the Annapurna Trail (up to 13,000 feet above sea Kathmandu and other, more remote,
locales.

This demo is free and open to the public.

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.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration of dry-point etchings by accomplished artist and gallery owner, Rosey Rosenthal.

Rosey Rosenthal earned a Bachelor of Art degree in Graphic Arts and Illustration from Pratt Institute. It’s difficult to express Rosey’s accomplishments without mentioning his wife and partner, Barbara. The Rosenthal’s are founding members of the Central Coast Printmakers Group of (SLOMA) San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, originating 36 years ago. Rosey, his wife Barbara, Stevie Vorhees and Joan Sullivan operated The Baywood Gallery, at the pier in Baywood, CA. Rosey and Barbara initiated the artist group, (SLAG) an artists’ cooperative located within the San Luis Obispo, Creamery Building. The Rosenthal’s later opened “Art is for Everyone”, a gallery in Baywood Park serving the public for 9 years. They established a printmaking studio, “Granada Arts” in Los Osos, selling over 30,000 etchings and relief prints, where they have taught etching workshops since 1981. Barbara brought art to the San Luis Obispo public schools, through the Santa Barbara Creative Project, for nine years.

Participants of this demonstration should bring an old cancelled credit or membership card with an idea for a 2 1/8" x 3 1/4" dry-point etching (see photo). Rosey will have a small etching press and tools needed to scratch designs into the plastic cards. He will give a quick overview and demonstrate how to scratch and print a card, then ink and print your completed etching (original print).

This will be an interactive demonstration that you’re sure to enjoy!

Art Center Morro Bay

July 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.

Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

Sunday, September 13, 2020 · 8am - 5pm

Morro Bay Art Association is pleased to offer an excursion to the Santa Barbara Art Walk.

The Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show was established in 1965 by local artists, inspired by the sidewalk art shows of Europe and the prestigious "Jardín del Arte" in Mexico City.
Sponsored by the City Parks and Recreation Department since 1966, the show is now the only continuous, non-juried arts festival of original drawings, paintings, graphics, sculpture, crafts and photography in the world. Whatever the size, subject, media and price, all are original art, done by the artists you meet.

Approximately 200 Santa Barbara County resident artists display their own original work in an informal atmosphere that encourages visitors to the show to talk with the artists about their work (and in some cases even to see them in action!).
This show is unique in that every artist lives in Santa Barbara County and personally produces each piece that is for sale.
Board a luxury charter in Morro Bay and travel in comfort right to the Art Walk! Then explore the art, restaurants, and local attractions with others. You’ll have approximately 3 ½ hours to discover beautiful art and crafts and do a little Christmas shopping if you care too.

This is a wonderful opportunity to leave the driving to us and is no more expensive than taking the train; and you don’t have to leave at 6am in the morning!

Wear comfortable walking shoes and layered clothing.
Pre-registration is required. Refunds will be given for cancellations made ten (10) days prior to excursion with the exception of a $20.00 non-refundable, registration fee.

October 9, 10, & 11, 2020

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a 3-day workshop, Abstraction and Multiple Viewpoint Perspective, with Trowzers Akimbo.

While Multiple Viewpoint Perspective will be the main focus of this intensive workshop, other abstraction vehicles will also be discussed and encouraged. The workshop goal will be for each attendee to go home with an abstract painting of their own design.

Trowzers Akimbo was raised in Venice, Ca and the eclectic vibe of the area is represented in much of his work. The art colony esthetic of the beach town attracted the best of art teachers to the school system and Betty Edwards, who wrote the influential book, "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” was among his talented high school art teachers. Teachers in art school included Bill Moore, Don Graham, Harold Kramer, Emerson Woelffer and one of the Group of Seven hard-edged painters, Frederick Hammersley. Prior to practicing fine art painting full-time, Trowzers worked as an NBC on air graphic artist, freelance illustrator/graphic designer, animated/live action tv commercial director/designer and as a creative director and chief creative officer in the computer game industry. Work for NBC included over 200 commercial segue illustrations for the Tonight Show, starring Johnny Carson, design of The Gong Show logo and body painting of GoGo dancers for Laugh-In. Trowzers contributed illustrations to the Sesame Street Workshop’s printed publications monthly. He is responsible for the creation of over 50 computer games. Among his many awards, Akimbo was awarded an Emmy for his animated titles for NBC: The First 50 Years: A Closer Look. Powerful influences in his painting work are Braque and Picasso (how can these two inventors of cubism and multiple viewpoint perspective, standing on the shoulders of Cézanne, not be an influence), Matisse, Gauguin, Lautrec, Van Gogh, Klee and Kandinsky.

Akimbo studied art and received his BFA at CalArts in Southern California.

“Honestly, I'm a bit of a sponge. I believe any painter's work I've ever seen has influenced my work on some level.”
- Trowzers Akimbo

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. Paula is a retired Pastor from the Estero Bay United Methodist Church and is currently involved with Yes, We Can Peacebuilders, nonviolence awareness classes. She can also be seen volunteering on the Embarcadero.

During this workshop you will learn how to design and create a mosaic trivet. You will learn how to select materials, lay out a pleasing pattern, and adhere the tiles to the trivet base. Anne and Paula will teach you how to properly grout and then seal your project. All materials will be supplied, however, if you have a favorite tile or ceramic pieces you may bring those and incorporate them into your project.
What a great thing to learn right before Christmas!

Morro Bay, CA  93442 Map

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a documentary film Cave of Forgotten Dreams.

Cave of Forgotten Dreams is a 2010 documentary film by Werner Herzog about the Chauvet Cave in southern France, which contains the oldest human-painted images yet discovered. Some of them were crafted around 32,000 years ago. The film premiered at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and consists of images from inside the cave as well as of interviews with various scientists and historians. The film also includes footage of the nearby Pont d'Arc natural bridge.
The Chauvet Cave is one of the most famous prehistoric rock art sites in the world. Located in the Ardeche region of France, the cave art of Chauvet was discovered as recently as 1994 by Jean-Marie Chauvet. The importance of the Chauvet Cave art paintings is based on two factors: firstly, the aesthetic quality of the Palaeolithic cave paintings, and secondly, the great age of the rock art.
This film is rated G and is 95 minutes. Directed and Written by Werner Herzon, released by IFC Films.
