Art Center Morro Bay835 Main StMorro Bay, CA93442 Map

Phillip Lopez began his love of ceramics in high school and to this day, his high school teacher remains an inspiration. After high school, Phillip continued his art education and received a BFA from Cal State University Long Beach with a focus on clay, and an MFA from UCLA focusing on design while specializing in blown glass. While at UCLA he studied with Adrian Saxe and Richard Marquis.

Phillip has also studied at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Dear Isle, Maine as well as Pilchuck Glass School with Dale Chihuly, in Stanwood, Washington.

As a third generation Angelino, Phillip found inspiration in the natural environment. Whether swimming at Zuma beach, or camping in Yosemite, nature and color has always influenced his art. As an avid kayak fisherman, his love of the sea has guided and inspired his current series of work. Hand building, throwing on the potter’s wheel, and creating one of a kind sculptures are all incorporated into Phillip's sense of design, creativity and artistic interpretation.

Phillip is currently living and working in Los Osos, Ca. His emphasis is on color and design, primarily using the decoration method of sgraffitto, which is carving on an unfired clay body revealing the contrasting slip/color of the underlying layer.

Phillip maintained a glassblowing studio in Northridge, Ca for many years, taught high school ceramics and art, and currently works out of his Los Osos studio.

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present Phillip Lopez exhibiting concurrently with Pastel Society of the West Coast and their 36th Annual, International Exhibition of Pastels USA.

Pastels USA and the ceramic pottery of Phillip Lopez will be on display from June 30, 2022 through August 8, 2022.

The opening artist reception will be held Sunday, July 13 2022, 2-4pm and the closing reception will feature the award ceremony on the last day of this event, Sunday, August 7, 2022, 2-4pm. These events are free and open to the public.

A Sense of Place

A Sense of Place

Jul 16, 10:00am - Jul 16, 4:00pm+1Jul 17, 10:00am - Jul 17, 4:00pm

Art Center Morro Bay835 Main StMorro Bay, CA93442 Map

Whether a world traveler or a homebody, a sense of place naturally finds its way into our painting. Social isolation has allowed us to consider our internal space more than ever. In this workshop we examine the concept of “place” by painting the essence of landscape - both internal and external. You will practice abstract acrylic painting techniques that are connected to the spirit in nature. Abstract painting is often misconstrued as an unrecognizable style of painting where no standard rules of perspective, color theory, or composition exist. We will dispel that myth.

Venture with us into the realm of self-expression by learning to harness nature's energy and direct it onto the canvas. We begin by demonstrating techniques that get you in touch with your surroundings. And we’ll also identify how “place” is sensed, perceived, and then translate into abstract painting.

Instruction includes demonstrations in basic and advanced techniques including painting with rust to create the patina of age, sumi ink, and Stabillo pencils, along with create expressive mark making, handmade stenciling, and collage to create patterns. The results are alive, authentic, and exhilarating.
Unveil the mysteries of abstraction by practicing techniques in form, rhythm and motion. Each student receives individual instruction and group critique.

Diane Williams and Chuck Potter hold Master of Fine Arts degrees in Studio Art and Consciousness from John F Kennedy University in Berkeley, CA. They studied at the University of Hangzhou China, incorporating calligraphy, traditional Chinese landscape painting and Chinese medicine with western art practices.
Their studios are in Crockett, CA. (Sugar City I AN I Studio) Benicia, CA. (I AN I Studio), and Greenville, CA. (Diamond I AN I Studio). They teach in their Benicia studio, and at their mountain retreat in Greenville. They offer destination workshops in places such as Whidbey Island, WA; Morro Bay, CA; Gualala, CA, and Marin MOCA, CA. Diane and Chuck have produced video workshop series with Jen Tough Gallery of Santa Fe and have an ongoing Zoom workshops.
Their works can be found in corporate, public, and personal collections nationally and worldwide.

CALL TO ARTISTS - UNLOCKED

Aug 9, 10:00am - Aug 9, 2:00pm

Art Center Morro Bay835 Main StMorro Bay, CA93442 Map

One might first consider the feelings of being locked-up. This may conjure thoughts of incarceration and confinement. Shackled by pain and fear, bound by personal or family strife, suppressed emotions of anger, sadness, grief or frustration. In other words, what keeps you locked-up?
This exhibition inspires fresh consideration of our most pressing social concerns through the lenses of art and history, inviting us to consider how we may become allies in the creation of a more humane world.

During this exhibit, artists are asked to emancipate themselves from artistic boundaries and unlock creative freedom!

Inspired by the freedom of captivity, this exhibition focuses on the power of dreams, love, forgiveness and the power of letting go! Liberate your artistic boundaries and set your creative spirit free.

This engaging exhibit will encompass a variety of artistic expression in all styles, ideas and mediums. Members are invited to submit up to (2) wall hung 2D pieces, (10) note cards, (5) portfolio prints, jewelry and (3) sculptures or 3D artworks. Please print entry forms and submit with your artwork on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 from 10am – 2pm.
