Art Center Morro Bay

October 9, 10, & 11, 2020

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a 3-day workshop, Abstraction and Multiple Viewpoint Perspective, with Trowzers Akimbo.

While Multiple Viewpoint Perspective will be the main focus of this intensive workshop, other abstraction vehicles will also be discussed and encouraged. The workshop goal will be for each attendee to go home with an abstract painting of their own design.

Trowzers Akimbo was raised in Venice, Ca and the eclectic vibe of the area is represented in much of his work. The art colony esthetic of the beach town attracted the best of art teachers to the school system and Betty Edwards, who wrote the influential book, "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” was among his talented high school art teachers.

Trowzers contributed illustrations to the Sesame Street Workshop’s printed publications monthly. He is responsible for the creation of over 50 computer games. Among his many awards, Akimbo was awarded an Emmy for his animated titles for NBC: The First 50 Years: A Closer Look. Powerful influences in his painting work are Braque and Picasso (how can these two inventors of cubism and multiple viewpoint perspective, standing on the shoulders of Cézanne, not be an influence), Matisse, Gauguin, Lautrec, Van Gogh, Klee and Kandinsky.

Akimbo studied art and received his BFA at CalArts in Southern California.

“Honestly, I'm a bit of a sponge. I believe any painter's work I've ever seen has influenced my work on some level.”

Art Center Morro Bay

Free and Open to the Public

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a documentary film Cave of Forgotten Dreams.

Cave of Forgotten Dreams is a 2010 documentary film by Werner Herzog about the Chauvet Cave in southern France, which contains the oldest human-painted images yet discovered. Some of them were crafted around 32,000 years ago. The film premiered at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and consists of images from inside the cave as well as of interviews with various scientists and historians. The film also includes footage of the nearby Pont d'Arc natural bridge.
The Chauvet Cave is one of the most famous prehistoric rock art sites in the world. Located in the Ardeche region of France, the cave art of Chauvet was discovered as recently as 1994 by Jean-Marie Chauvet. The importance of the Chauvet Cave art paintings is based on two factors: firstly, the aesthetic quality of the Palaeolithic cave paintings, and secondly, the great age of the rock art.
This film is rated G and is 95 minutes. Directed and Written by Werner Herzon, released by IFC Films.
