Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present featured artists, Robert Dodge and Margaret Bertrand as part of its Winter Faire and Juried Craft Exhibit. Few things capture the imagination more than two, equally engaged, influential couples, as this award winning couple do.

Robert Dodge was born in the suburbs of Chicago and gained artistic inspiration as a young man while watching his father paint. He served in the United States Air Force and later worked in the computer applications department of a Chicago bank for twenty years. In 1990, Bob began to develop his own artistic style using oil, acrylic, encaustic, collage, pastel, ink, and more. Bob studied and practiced Zen Buddhism and much of his work is reminiscent of travels throughout Southeast Asia, Japan and China. His work has been widely collected throughout the United States and Japan.

Margaret Bertrand was born in Niagara Falls, New York. Margaret graduated from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois as a psychology major with a minor in art history. She went on to spend thirty three years in advertising and marketing for a multi-
million dollar hair care and a snack food company. Margaret has been a full time artist for approximately twenty five years and works mostly in encaustic or encaustic monotypes. Her work is reflective of her extensive travels throughout Southeast Asia to include Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Japan, China and visits to France. Her work has been exhibited and collected throughout the San Francisco Bay area and San Luis Obispo County.

Both Bob and Margaret have studied art under notable instructors and currently reside together in Los Osos, California. Robert Dodge and Margaret Bertrand bring out their best of creativity for this very special curated exhibit, during the holidays!
This very special holiday event is a collective of exceptional paintings, photography and fine crafts, spanning a variety of artistic mediums from traditional to contemporary. Crafts include fiber art, wood, glass, jewelry and more.

Since then, PWC has grown from a small group of dedicated home rehabilitators into a successful non-profit organization with a well-equipped rehabilitation center, a full-time wildlife veterinarian, a small paid staff, and over 200 volunteers. PWC is open 8:30am – 5pm daily. For more information about this wildlife rescue service, please visit their website at www.pacificwildlifecare.org Report injured, sick or orphaned wildlife by calling the Hotline: 805-543-9453.

Art Center Morro Bay presents its annual, For the Birds exhibit in conjunction with the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival.

This exciting exhibition celebrates Morro Bay’s vast array of indigenous species of birds and all things bird-related! During this exhibit, Art Center Morro Bay will be featuring the high-fired stoneware and sculptures of local artists, Stepen Juel and Sheri Parisian, owners of Dancing Dog Clayworks.

Stepen Juel began his love affair with clay in the 1970’s while studying and working in the sculpture department at a California community college. Wood had been a preferred medium until he watched students in a neighboring studio, working on pottery wheels. “Clay work proved to be the perfect wedding of earth, water, fire and air - thus the marriage was consummated.” Having completed an MA degree in recreation therapy, Stepen taught ceramic classes to seniors and adolescents with developmental disabilities where he learned the true value of clay in the creative process. “I spent 16 years overseeing county, aging and disability programs, while sustaining my interest in clay in my home studio.”

My love of whimsy, incorporating animals into functional ware, can be seen in my current work. I’ve developed a special fondness for those ancient, mythical flying creatures, dragons! Dragons and the many crows that inhabit the woods surrounding our home have flavored my recent work.


Sheri Parisian loves the way clay can express emotionally what she cannot express with words. Also, the sensual quality of clay that is so satisfying while creating with it.

“I start with a vague vision of my final construction and the emotion that I want to transmit. Sometimes with whimsy or lightness to share, sometimes with the concern for the difficulties that we all endure. The final piece is often its own. Something I merely watch as it’s born. Honoring bird forms and bird structures have become my passion and expression.”

Sheri dreams of taking flight like a bird. One of her ceramic series evolves around the fantasy of becoming a bird. “A woman, I imagine, is dawning a magic mask that is slowly transforming her into a bird. Then it all fails and she returns to reality,” Touched by their sense of survival and resilience, Sheri imagines herself closely studying the personality and character of these creatures while they are sitting nearby at the water’s edge. She conveys that there are life lessons to be learned from their strength.

Sheri enjoys the outdoors where she can communicate with them. Her birdhouses are for their protection and pure entertainment! Some of them hang while others stand on feet! “I’m communing with them… a reverence that is deep within.”

Upon retiring in 2005, husband and wife, Stepen Juel and Sheri Parisian, moved to Cambria, CA and opened Dancing Dog Clayworks.

Art Center Morro Bay835 Main StMorro Bay, CA93442 Map

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present Earth and Fire.

In the beginning, Earth was on fire and devoid of life. In the eons since, Earth became the Mother to all living organisms. All life forms depend on the original primordial forces to survive and flourish. We humans are made of these elements.

Artists fire clay into vessels that carry our food grown by the Earth and Sun. We carry the burning fire of love and compassion in our hearts for our Mother, and yet, we treat her with disrespect.

This exhibition will reflect how we view our own fundamental beginnings, born of primitive elements and how these origins resonate within ourselves.

This exhibit celebrates artistic expression in all media to include textile, encaustic, mixed media, oil, watercolor, acrylic and photography.

Earth and Fire will be on display in the main gallery concurrent with AQUARIUS, which will be on display in the Virginia Russel gallery upstairs from February 24 through April 4, 2022. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open daily from 12pm – 4pm.

RECEPTION: Sunday, February, 27, 2-4pm (Pending Covid Restrictions)

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to host the Central Coast Watercolor Society’s annual art exhibit, Aquarius 2022.

Frank Eber will be the juror and judge of awards for this exceptional art exhibit. In addition, Mr. Eber will hold a 2-day watercolor workshop (February 28-March 1, 2022) in conjunction with this exhibit.

Frank Eber was raised in Europe and mentored by Italian master painter, Renato Casaro. During the 1980’s and 90’s, Frank worked as a professional illustrator and portrait artist. He settled in the south of France, where he lived and painted on location for three years. His love of travel has taken him to several countries, including the United States, where he currently resides in California. Frank paints with watercolor in the studio and en plein air.

“Atmosphere and light are just the first steps. As shapes dissolve in patterns of value and light, the painting becomes more a poetic statement than a literal representation. Painting is my meditation, my refuge. It exists in a timeless state–an ego-less zone in which I feel whole, as though life actually makes sense. One day I may be able to paint something of significance.” - Frank Eber

Frank is a Signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America. He is also an Artist member of the California Art Club.
Frank conducts workshops and demonstrations of his watercolors at the international level and is increasingly in demand as a judge and juror.
