RECEPTION: SATURDAY, February 23, 4 -6pm Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present a very special art exhibit, Light the Way, in celebration of International Woman’s Day. Throughout history, art has provided a glimpse into social circumstances surrounding daily life. In today’s climate of social change throughout the world, artists provide a glimpse into the concept of human rights and the inequality that encompasses all walks of life. During this remarkable exhibit, artists commemorate the unique strength of women as they express encouragement, support and unification of gender equality, social, cultural and political achievements. Please join us in the support of the women who inspire and motivate others.

Perry is a U.S Navy veteran who earned a Bachelor of Art degree from Cal State University, Bakersfield. Although his pursuit of art as a profession was discouraged, he excelled with every art related class. Making his way through Japan and Southeast Asia, Robert admired exceptional designs that left a lasting impression. The pot as an art form, both traditional and lidded, intrigued him as he admired them along the Jemez Pueblo, located in Taos, New Mexico. Robert made the decision to purchase a lathe and take up woodturning, and began teaching himself the skills to become a master craftsman in the field of woodturning. His designs are influenced by a mixture of Asian, Prairie and Mission styles. Outside artwork may sometimes affect the shape of a pot, however they always come to life solely on the lathe without aid of preliminary drawings. Light the Way is on display from February 21 through April 1, 2019. Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, February 23, 2pm – 4pm. This event is free and open to the public.

RECEPTION: Sunday, April 7, 2-4pm Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present, From Natural to Abstraction, an open, all media exhibit and Pottery by Jim Gregory. Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be slight, partial, or complete, as abstraction in art exists along a continuum. Even art that aims for realism of the highest degree can be said to be abstract since perfect representation may be elusive. Concurrent with this exhibit, MBAA is proud to feature, fine artist, Jim Gregory. Jim earned a Bachelor of Art degree at Gambling State University where he became Gambling’s “White Tiger”, the first quarterback at a predominantly all black school. “I feel fortunate to have been a small part of the Civil Rights Movement of the late 60’s and early 70’s. This was a positive experience for me.” Jim went on to earn a Master’s degree at Oregon College of Education, now Western Oregon State University. Jim returned to the Central Valley to teach pottery at Reedley High School for 33 years and at Reedley Jr. College for 26 years as an adjunct faculty member. Jim relocated to the Central Coast where he makes pottery that is masterfully produced with horse hair for beautiful earth tones to raku with vibrant color. Come in to explore these stunning artworks that are both decorative and functional! This exhibit celebrates artistic expression in all media. You will find a variety of subject matter spanning nature to total abstract. “From Natural to Abstraction” and Pottery by Jim Gregory will be on display from April 4 through May 13, 2019. Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, April 7, 2019, 2pm-4pm. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily.

RECEPTION: Sunday, May 19, 2019, 2pm–4pm Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present a compelling exhibit, Born in the USA. Immigration has been a touchstone of the U.S. political debate for decades. Even as most Americans celebrate their heritage and identity as a “nation of immigrants”, there seems to be a deep ambivalence about future immigration. Despite the complex issues surrounding the struggle of asylum, assimilation and deportation, increasing numbers of people continue to risk emotional and physical heartbreak for the opportunity to live a safer and better life by migrating to America. In some cases, the human toll mounts as men, women and children quietly disappear from the dessert landscape in pursuit of the “American Dream”. Whether we are direct descendants of an immigrant or an immigrant ourselves, in the current climate, socially and politically, this subject is more relevant than ever. Artists were invited to illustrate their personal concepts of the human struggle by confronting issues of immigration, or celebrate our great country’s vast ethnic and cultural diversity with art. Art doesn’t just reflect the world — it engages with it. This exhibit may depict scenes that some viewers find disturbing and not suitable for children. During this event, we are please to feature the art of Barry Lundgren! Barry has been woodturning for over twenty years. Although he has taken workshops from other respected and admired woodturners, Barry considers himself to be self taught. His inspiration is derived from the wood, itself. The shape of each piece is as important as the type of wood he finds. Every piece different in color, texture, scent and character. Barry states, “Some pieces are turned green and I find it fascinating how they warp and distort into finished pieces.” Barry rough-turns lidded boxes, threaded urns, and salad bowls, then allows them to dry and stabilize. Artworks are remounted and turned to finish their shape then left to dry, staying symmetrical. “Whether they are the classical shapes from the past or the natural-edge pieces that warp into their own shape, my goal is to make them all pleasing to the eye and touch.” Born in the USA is on display from May 16 through June 24, 2019. Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, May 19, 2019, 2pm–4pm. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily.

During the Born in the USA exhibit, we are please to feature the art of Barry Lundgren! Barry has been woodturning for over twenty years. Although he has taken workshops from other respected and admired woodturners, Barry considers himself to be self taught. His inspiration is derived from the wood, itself. The shape of each piece is as important as the type of wood he finds. Every piece different in color, texture, scent and character. Barry states, “Some pieces are turned green and I find it fascinating how they warp and distort into finished pieces.” Barry rough-turns lidded boxes, threaded urns, and salad bowls, then allows them to dry and stabilize. Artworks are remounted and turned to finish their shape then left to dry, staying symmetrical. “Whether they are the classical shapes from the past or the natural-edge pieces that warp into their own shape, my goal is to make them all pleasing to the eye and touch.” Don't miss this remarkable exhibit and the beautiful woodturner artwork of Barry Lundgren!

Reception: Sunday, June 30, 2-4pm Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present, The Morros, a collection of paintings in all media and styles that capture the color and energy of Morro Rock and sister formations. This event is a celebration of the Nine Sisters or the Morros, a chain of volcanic mountains and hills that span east from Morro Bay, through San Luis Obispo County. Locals will debate whether there are seven sisters or nine in this family of geological formations. In fact, there may be more than fifteen peaks belonging to this string of volcanic plugs. During this exhibit, Art Center Morro Bay will feature glass sculptor, George Jercich. George’s characteristic, hand blown glass sculptures, capture the spirit of Morro Bay and the Central Coast. George graduated from San Jose State University in 1984 with his MFA in Sculpture/Plastic Arts. He travelled throughout the USA, Europe and Asia seeking experiences in glass. He attended Pilchuck Glass School, the Interglas Symposium in Novy Bor, Czechoslovakia, participated in American/Thai Cultural Exchange Programs and co-instructed glassblowing at Ox-Bow Summer School of the Arts (SAIC). George is also the co-founder of the California Glass Exchange. George instructed glassblowing, glass forming, 3D design and sculpture courses at Cal Poly for over 35 years.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present Thru the Lens II. This juried exhibition is a collection of fine art photography, featuring gifted photographers throughout the Central Coast. Judge of Awards: We are fortunate to have photographer and instructor, Brady Cabe as judge for this celebrated event. Brady is a seasoned photographer who enjoys the outdoors. With both feet and tripod in the water, he captures wildlife, a sunset, or the Milky Way late into the night. His passion for photographing the night sky overflows into summertime astrophotography. Brady’s passion for photography has grown into sharing with others through astrophotography, sunset, and wildlife photography workshops. Teaching has caused Brady to reverse engineer everything he does. This process has guided his curriculum into simplified, step by step processes that make photography accessible for every skill level. Brady states, “I’m a nature and landscape photographer based on the Central Coast of California, with a passion for sharing. I’m a bird nerd, a seal whisperer, a half marathon finisher, poker shark, Milky Way fanatic, and lover of chocolate.” Featured 3D Artist: Giselle Massey grew up in Los Osos, CA., where the Central Coast became a constant source of inspiration for her work. Her love of creativity and self expression blossomed into an art filled passion. Childhood summers spent outdoors in barefoot freedom have forever bonded her to the surrounding ecosystem. Perhaps it’s no surprise that the same plants and flowers she enjoyed during her childhood, are a recurring theme in her work. “One of my passions is to bring art into everyday moments of life with functional ceramics like mugs, planters, and bowls. I carve and texture nearly every piece I make, often leaving portions of clay bare as a part of the design to be enjoyed by hands as well as eyes”. Whether you are attending this remarkable exhibit to observe or to purchase, you are in for a delight! Thru the Lens II, an exhibit of fine art photography will be on display from August 8, through September 16, 2019. The opening reception is Aug 11, 2019, 2-4pm.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present it’s 3rd Annual Juried Exhibition, a National event. WHAT: Annual Juried Exhibition WHEN: September 19 through October 29, 2019 RECEPTION: Sunday, September 22, 2019, 2-4pm WHERE: Art Center Morro Bay, 835 Main Street, Morro Bay, CA 93442 CONTACT: 805-772-2504 or visit www.artcentermorrobay.org This juried event is a collective of exceptional paintings spanning the United States. Many of the artists are internationally acclaimed. In addition, MBAA will feature the three dimensional art of Guyla Amyx. We are fortunate to have award winning artist, Dennis Curry, as the judge for this celebrated event. Judge of Awards: Dennis Curry is a professional artist of international fame. Dennis served in the United States Army, 25th Infantry Division’s Combat Artists program in 1966 where he documented combat experiences from an artist’s perspective. Upon returning to the U.S., Dennis attended Santa Monica College where he learned original printmaking. He traveled to East Africa and co-founded Duma Safaris with a friend and publisher, Christopher Law. This life changing experience afforded him the pleasure of introducing others to the great game areas that forever influenced his love of nature. Following an introduction to the contemporary printmaking of Mylar Lithography, he founded Blue Berry Press, located in Cambria, CA., later becoming known for his work in the traditional, intaglio mediums of etching and engraving. Later, moving away from printmaking and wildlife, Dennis began working in the more traditional medium of oil painting to capture the light and color of the landscapes on location and in the studio. Dennis has significantly contributed to conservation work around the world and his graphics are widely collected nationally and internationally. Dennis relayed, “While much art of the past has dealt with the glories and follies of humankind, I feel a need to portray nature for its own sake with the hope of promoting value and respect for our unique planet and the varied form of life with which we share it.” Dennis is a current member of Society of Animal Artists, Artists for Conservation and San Luis Outdoor Painters for the Environment. Guest Artist:�During this special event, we are proud to present the ceramic artwork of Guyla Amyx. Guyla earned a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Eastern Washington University and a Master of Tine Art degree from Washington University. Guylas was a tenured professor at Cuesta Community College where she taught ceramic art for over 22 years and served eight years as the department chair. Guyla’s early style of ceramics leaned toward the figurative, using brightly colored surfaces, geometric patterns and shapes. Her approach to working with clay involved a raw and spontaneous quality. Later during her tenure as professor, Guyla explored a renewed interest in the Cone 10 Reduction process that she shared with her students. Much of her work is reflective of this process. Guyla states, “You may see a more refined and meditative quality to my recent creations with carved porcelain and crystalline glazing, reflective of my exploration in yoga and Eastern philosophy.” This exhibit celebrates the three dimensional work of Guyla Amyx and two dimensional, art work in all media of those artists accepted into this extraordinary exhibit. You will find a variety of subject matter spanning traditional landscape to contemporary and abstract. Whether you are attending this exhibit to observe or to purchase, you are in for a delight! Morro Bay Art Association’s Annual Juried Exhibit will be on display from September 19 through October 29, 2019. A “meet the artists” opening reception, will be held, Sunday, September 22, 2019, 2-4pm. This event is free and open to the public.
