Aquarius 2023

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to host the Central Coast Watercolor Society’s annual art exhibit, Aquarius 2023. This exhibition promises to be an extraordinary exhibit featuring a wide array of watercolor artworks, ranging from experimental to traditional styles.
Juror of Selection and Awards:
Fealing Lin Award-winning watercolorist Fealing Lin of San Marino, California, was born in Taiwan and began her journey into artistic expression as a protégé of renowned professor Ching-Jung Chen in Taiwan, subsequently pursuing her career in the United States with watercolorist and senior art historian, Professor Verna Wells.
With a fluidity of colors, Ms. Lin combines impressionistic strokes and semi-abstract techniques to derive life and movement in her portrait and landscape watercolors. Her paintings adorn the paper with both harmony and emotion. Although briefly diverted from her passion by a family tradition of medicine and dentistry, Fealing ultimately abandoned her tray of instruments and high-speed drills in favor of her palette and brushes.

The Morro Bay Art Associations member show is titled Tidal Zone. For this exhibit, artists were asked to capture the exhilarating sensation of the sea. Many have long been inspired by the ocean’s seductive movement and transformative power. The sea can be described in an endless number of ways. Its power and beauty can be refreshing and magnificent, seductive, or its mysterious vastness can become turbulent, terrifying and downright humbling. Don’t miss this immersive exhibit featuring a wide array of ocean themed artworks, offered in a wide variety of media.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to feature the sculptures of Anne Grannis. Anne loves creating art from stone carving, pastel painting and fabric. She has taught clay sculpting since she was a young girl. Her sense of whimsy prevails in her popular dream boxes and her figurative sculptures are the very shape of intimacy, created from live models.







Whether you are attending this exhibit to observe or to find that perfect painting for yourself or as a gift, you are in for a delight.

Meet the artists at the opening reception, Sunday, February 26, 2pm-4pm.

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