Morro Bay Art Association presents its annual, For the Birds exhibit in celebration of the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival. This exhibit is a collection of fine art paintings and photography depicting Morro Bay’s vast array of indigenous species of birds and all things bird-related.

Join us during the opening reception, For the Birds, January 12, 2-4pm. Pacific Wildlife Center will be there with at least one or more of their fascinating, rescued birds!

Pacific Wildlife Care is San Luis Obispo county's only licensed rehabilitation center that cares for injured birds, mammals, and reptiles.

As a result of the Apex Houston oil spill that brought a number of oiled pelicans to the beaches of San Luis Obispo County, Pacific Wildlife Care, a non-profit, volunteer organization, was founded in 1986. 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. Pacific Wildlife Care also offers a Student Internship program.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present Perspectives.

This exhibit explores how perspective gives a three-dimensional feeling to a flat surface. Linier perspective creates the illusion of distance to a vanishing point. It’s a system of representing the way objects appear to get smaller and closer together, the farther away they are from the viewer. We see parallel lines as converging in the distance, although in reality they really don’t. Roads and railway lines are obvious examples.
Multiple vanishing points such as a cityscapes, enable a more naturalistic representation.
Atmospheric or aerial perspective, creates the sense of distance by simulating changes affected by color such as blue in a mountain as it meets the sky.
This exhibit celebrates artistic expression in all media to include textile, encaustic, mixed media, oil, watercolor, acrylic and photography. This theme extends itself to anything that represents a variety of perspectives.

Marcia is currently on the Faculty of Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo and teaches Printmaking. She is an author and blogger, who stated of her own artwork, “These works are still lifes and landscapes, field notes and occasions, letters and witnessing’s. Like the painters of 17th Century Dutch still lifes, I’m interested in illustrating mundane objects with a care and regard for them, and an emphasis on the transitory nature of life.”

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present Beyond the Sea.

Art is powerful. It has the ability to communicate important social, political and environmental issues in a way that is loud and unyielding in its resolve and at the same time playful and beautiful in its approach.

Inspired by our magnificent oceans and our compelling desire to understand and protect them, this exhibit goes far beyond the fragile beauty of our planet. Among the world’s most immediate and biggest environmental problems is plastic finding its way into the ocean, washed ashore and fibers reportedly finding its way into rain water.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Unkown

This exhibit celebrates artistic expression in all media to include textile, encaustic, mixed media, oil, watercolor, acrylic and photography. This theme extends itself to anything above and below water! Rain, drippy faucets, icebergs, sea life and the effects of our changing planet.

Painting, Typhon Of Petrolia© by Patrick Watson. Typhon is the many headed son of Gaea (Earth) and Tartarus (the netherworld), who was born cursed and cast into the volcanic regions. Petrolia is a town in Humboldt County named for the first oil well drilled in California.


“Beyond the Sea” is on display in both the Main gallery downstairs and Russell gallery upstairs from May 14 through June 22, 2020. Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, May 17, 2pm-4pm. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily.

Judge of Awards:

W. Truman Hosner will serve as judge of awards during this event.

Born in Detroit, 1950, W. Truman Hosner earned a Bachelor of Fine Art degree at Wayne State University and went on to study illustration at The Center for Creative Studies, College of Art and Design in Detroit. During his 17 years as a professional illustrator, his assignments included, among others, The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Field and Stream magazine, CBS-Fox Video, and Reader’s Digest. At the peak of a very successful career in commercial art, Hosner re-focused himself and studied under two master painters at the Scottsdale Artists School in Arizona, Harley Brown and Dan Gerhartz. Plein-air fine art painting captured his passion. Over the past two decades he received personal mentoring from Max Altekruse, himself a student of the renowned Frank Reilly of the Art Students League in New York City.

Mr Hosner earned the distinction of Master Pastelist Pastel Society of America, Master Pastelist International Association of Pastel Societies, Maitre Pastelliste Societe de Pastel de L’est du Canada and Distinguished Member, Pastel Society of the West Coast.

Paintings by W. Truman Hosner have been featured in national and international museum collections and exhibitions throughout the USA, Canada, France and Asia.

“During a painting session, everything is always changing, the light is constantly modulating and then my painting slowly evolves, becomes dynamic, it pulsates energy and exuberance.”

Whether you are attending this extraordinary exhibit to observe or to purchase, you are in for a delight! “Pastels USA” will be on display from June 25 through August 2, 2020. The opening artist reception will be held Sunday, June 28, 2-4pn and the closing reception will feature the award ceremony on the last day of this event, Sunday, August 2, 2-4pm.

These events are free and open to the public.
