Marjory Abeyta
"Fun With Drawing"

Free and Open to the Public

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration of equine portraiture, by Los Osos artist, Marjory Abeyta.

Over 25 years ago, Marjory fell in love with her first Arabian horse, Wind Khloud. This special bond inspired Marjory to begin drawing realistic equine portraits.

Charcoal and graphite are among the most fundamental of art materials. You can use the inherent characteristics of each to great effect, contrasting not only lighter and darker tone, grey and black, but also matte and glossy surface finish.

This demonstration will consist of techniques with traditional charcoal, graphite and Cretacolor Nero pencil, an oil based charcoal. Marjory will share the advantages of various papers, mediums and methods in sketching. She will also share how to create textures and values to produce realistic looking artwork.

Marjory is an Associate Member of the Central Coast Watercolor Society.

Learn about the possibilities and effects of these fundamental drawing tools for lifelike interpretation in your artwork! While you’re enjoying the demo, don’t miss the current art exhibit, On and Off the Wall! www.facebook.com/events/1189232574507612/

Susan Malmgren
“Journey to Sculpted Paintings”

Free and Open to the Public

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration in sculpture by Susan Malmgren.

Susan earned a BA in Sociology from University of California, Santa Barbara. She continued with art education through University of California Santa Cruz, Pacific Art League and Palo Alto Cultural Center over the past 25 years. Inspired by others, she began to explore a variety of mediums. Susan explains, “Most of my paintings are acrylic, but I’ve also tried encaustic, oil, mosaic, glass, printing and collage.”

This demonstration will consist of Susan’s own unique style of turning a painting into a colorful sculpture! Using acrylic paint on watercolor paper, Susan molds her paintings into a distinctively, dynamic sculpture, transforming it from two to three dimensional art.

If you’re looking for a fun new medium that would take your two dimensional art to an entire new level, don’t miss this opportunity to see how it’s done!
