Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present a riveting art exhibit, The Power of Red.

The colors and hues of red often symbolize an undeniable sense of power, strength, passion and confidence.

Chinese brides have worn red since the Ming Dynasty because it is considered the color of luck and wealth, and was once thought to drive away evil spirits. Like the scarlet letter, red implies a sensual connection to a woman’s sexuality. Some have painted their front door red as a sign of hospitality and fashion designers are currently declaring red to be a sought after color in 2023! Is it any wonder why sport car fans often prefer the color red?

Like a bowl of fresh strawberries or other fruits, the dynamic colors of red bring energy to still life and abstract paintings. A dazzling red sunset can culminate intense energy or add strength to an otherwise calming mood.

Artist are asked to splash the color of red in all styles of artwork. This exhibit is open to all subject matter. This show is in both galleries, and open to all artists and 2D media. Artists are also welcome to submit up to 5 portfolio prints, 10 notes cards, 3 sculptures and jewelry.

During this exhibit, artists are asked to capture the exhilarating sensation of RED.

The Power of Red will be on display April 6 - May 15,2023. Meet the artists at the
opening reception, Saturday, April 8, 2023, 2pm-4pm. This event is free and open to the public.

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

Art Center Morro Bay835 Main StMorro Bay, CA93442 Map

SUBMISSION: March 1 through June 1, 2023, midnight.

This exhibit is a non-themed show focusing on selected wood turned artwork. artcentermorrobay.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/CCW-Prospectus-.pdf

A Juried Exhibition presented by THE CENTRAL COAST WOODTURNERS at Art Center Morro Bay.

ABOUT THE JUROR: James Santhon was introduced to woodturning during his early teens when he was conscripted into his brother’s fledgling woodturning business gluing and cleaning up.

James served in the U.S. Navy before beginning his own career in 1969. He apprenticed under his brother for several years before striking out on his own while working at a variety of companies, including a stair company, a lamp manufacturer and several cabinet shops.

In 1998 he joined the Orange County Woodturners in Southern California and American Association of Woodturners. James began to demonstrate woodturning for local woodturning clubs in southern California, and Arizona. In 2011 he was on a discussion panel at the 25th anniversary AAW symposium in St Paul Minnesota; in 2014 he demonstrated for the North London Woodturners and was a demonstrator at the AAW symposium in Phoenix Arizona.

James occasionally offers to provide woodturning demonstrations while working full time for a large cabinet firm in the San Gabriel Valley located in Southern California.


ABOUT CCW: The Central Coast Woodturners became a chapter of the American Association of Woodtuners in September 1991. CCW endeavors to encourage and enhance wood turning skills through “sawdust” sessions, meeting at selected member shops for targeted lessons and demonstrations from world renown woodturners. The CCW has a working relationship with the Marian Regional Medical Center Foundation and Beads of Courage supplying lidded bowls and wig trees to both children and seniors dealing with cancer on the Central Coast.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present the fine art exhibit, Abstraction, in the Virginia Russell gallery, upstairs.

Abstract by definition is having only intrinsic form with little or no attempt at pictorial representation or narrative content. Enter the realm of self-expression and a departure from reality where every brushstroke is a form of abstraction, displaying a variety of expressive expanses. Here, sharp edges, solid colors, geometric compositions and brushed, poured or spray-painted surfaces abound.

During this exhibit, we’re throwing out the rules, where the amount of abstraction is up to the artist. That’s how art is born and breakthroughs happen.

This show is open to MBAA Members and all 2D media. Artists are welcome to submit up to 2 wall hung artworks in any size, 5 portfolio prints, 10 notes cards, 3 sculptures and jewelry.

TAKE IN: Tuesday, June 27, 2023, 10am – 2pm

REFLECTIONS

WHAT: REFLECTIONS
WHEN: Take-in, September 19, 2023, 10am – 2pm
RECEPTION: Sunday, 24, 2023 2-4pm
WHERE: Art Center Morro Bay, 835 Main St, Morro Bay, CA 93442

The Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present the compelling art exhibit, Reflections.

THIS IS A THEME FOR EVERYONE!

During this exhibit, artists are asked to examine the world of art through their own personal looking glass.

Artists may interpret Reflections as a cast of light, an image you see when you look into a mirror or the expression of human experience.

Reflections are an important part of art composition. Without reflections, art may simply have a flat unrealistic appearance. Consider how reflections create light and shadow in the eyes of a portrait, the sense of peace reflecting across still water with moored boats and the sparkle across a shiny car or other still objects. Photographers are additionally challenged to change shutter speeds for dramatic light from the stars or create soft reflections of a sunset.

Artists are encouraged to create artworks with the reflections of light and shadow in all media and subject matter.

This exhibit is open to MBAA Members in the main gallery. Artists are welcome to submit up to (2) wall hung artworks, (10) note cards, (5) portfolio prints and (3) 3D artworks in all media. Take-in for this show is Tuesday, September 19, 2023 10am – 2pm. Entry forms and wire tags: artcentermorrobay.org/index.php/entry-forms/

The opening reception is Sunday, September 24, 2-4pm.
