Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present lecturer John Seed discussing his recent book “Disrupted Realism”.

John Seed is a Professor Emeritus of art and art history who taught at Mt. San Jacinto College for 31 years. Seed has written about art and artists for Arts of Asia, Art Ltd., Catamaran, Harvard Magazine, International Artist, The HuffingtonPost and Poets and Artists. He was a featured expert in the Google Arts and Culture video series "Name That Art."

Disrupted Realism is the first book to survey the works of contemporary painters who are challenging and reshaping the tradition of Realism. Helping art lovers, collectors, and artists approach and understand this compelling new phenomenon, it includes the works of 38 artists whose paintings respond to the subjectivity and disruptions of modern experience. Widely published author and blogger John Seed, who believes that we are "the most distracted society in the history of the world," has selected artists he sees as visionaries in this developing movement. The artists' impulses toward disruption are as individual as the artists themselves, but all share the need to include perception and emotion in their artistic process.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a free participatory demo on painting birds with artist Virgina Mack.

Birds are captivating, beautiful, elusive, inspiring, and difficult to capture with the paintbrush.
In this demo workshop I will share my pursuit of the birds in my yard, from my kayak, from shore. As I have gotten to know many of the birds, my ability to create satisfying images of them has gotten more fluid. I will share the process of seeing the birds more completely and the process of transforming what I have seen into what I paint. I will demonstrate the various techniques I use in capturing the likenesses of the birds and invite participants to try some of these techniques.

All materials will be provided. This is the Morro Bay Art Association’s free monthly demo meeting.

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.
