CURRENT ART EXHIBITIONS

Under Pressure

Under Pressure is an exhibition of work by the Central Coast Printmakers, a group of around thirty artists who share a love of printmaking.

In this exhibit of individually hand-made prints, there will be a wide variety of styles and printmaking techniques. Printmakers use many different surfaces such as wood, metal, linoleum and plastic, and methods like carving blocks, etching with acid, and painting materials to print, using a large assortment of papers to achieve these images.
Most prints are conceived and made in reverse, so that when the image is transferred to the paper, it will view correctly. The transfer to the paper is accomplished by hand rubbing or with the use of a press.

Under Pressure will be on display in the Main Gallery, concurrent with “Broken Nature” which will be on display in the Virginia Russel Gallery upstairs, from May 26 through June 27, 2022. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open daily from 12pm – 4pm.

This exhibition addresses the critical state of the environment due to the impact of human presence, by thinking locally and globally, and confronting global warming, drought, wildfires, climate change, extinction of species, pollution, ocean plastic garbage patch, polluted air, etc.

This exhibit is a challenge to dare. To pose raw questions, expose current states of matter and to envision the solutions. Let us address the consequences of our choices and urgent need to live sustainably within Earth’s resources and within our own psyche.

BROKEN NATURE will be on display in the Virginia Russell Gallery (upstairs) concurrent with UNDER PRESSURE, which will be on display in the Main Gallery (downstairs), from May 26 through June 27, 2022.

This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open daily from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm.
