Art Demonstrations

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present an interactive demonstration on June 10th from 3 to 5 PM by Debra Piazza.

Debra is a relative newcomer to the local art scene, having only gotten involved during the pandemic, but she is no stranger to art itself. Both of her parents were artists, and her years as an interior designer gave her a keen understanding of design and color.

She says that the pandemic was the perfect greenhouse for her art to blossom. She researched materials and took an online art course. Starting with landscapes and portraits, she chose abstracts for its challenge and  familiarity with the importance of design and color values. She says, “Not knowing what I am going to paint and just letting it happen is my bliss.” Many of the textures she brings to her collages are of her own creations.

She is currently selling at Morro Made, Rustic Diamond, Mea Winery and Cayucos Makers with showings at several wineries and SLO Provisions upcoming. Despite being a professional artist for only three years, she was accepted in a local juried show and received a commendation award for the “A Mirror Image” show. She volunteers and shows at the Morro Bay Art Center.

In her presentation, she will bring some of her beautiful collage material and offer participants the opportunity to build their own abstract.

Demo Days are always on the second Monday of the month and are always free and open to the public.
