July 15, 2021 - September 6, 2021

In conjunction to The Great Outdoors exhibit, Art Center Morro Bay is please to present the beautiful wood turned art of Larry K. Truesdale.

There has always been a passion inside of Larry as it pertains enjoying the beauty of the internal grains of various species of woods, and a vision of what a piece of wood could ultimately become to expose its inner beauty. His experience in the scientific community, focusing on drug discovery, gave him the ability to look beyond the ordinary and create something extraordinary. After retiring in 2011 from a career in drug discovery research, he decided to learn more about the various woods growing across the globe, research and define how best he could enhance Mother Nature’s Wonderful Pallet, hence the name for his new focus…”Woods of the World, Mother Nature’s Pallet” was created.

With each creative idea comes a vision. Larry has the ability to convert that vision into a new product thereby revealing the inner beauty of the wood through its grain, which tells a story of the tree’s growth challenges. Whether it is a tree trunk or a small piece of wood from a tree, he will ultimately convert it to a unique piece of art that is more beautiful than the original piece. To him this process is similar to reacting molecules to create unusual 3-D structures to enhance their biological properties to make useful medicines for mankind.

For Larry, the experience of looking at a tree or a cut block of its wood is truly amazing. He envisions the inner potential and beauty within waiting to be revealed, and then brings new life to that piece of wood.

Larry creates unique three dimensional artworks that are not only beautiful, but also practical.


The Great Outdoors, featuring wood turned artwork of Larry K. Truesdale will be on display from July 15, 2021 through September 6, 2021. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily, except Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

OPEN Call for Art: "VISIONARY HUMAN." For 2D Art & Jewelry.
..............................
Art Take-in is Tues, Sept 7, 2021.
10am-2pm
ART CENTER MORRO BAY
835 Main St, Morro Bay, CA

Our "VISIONARY HUMAN" Exhibit is Sept 9-Nov 1, 2021, open daily 12-4pm.

This pandemic provides an opportunity to break with the past, reconcile with current injustices and imagine a world anew.

We are at the crossroads. Turning away from yesterday, we’re leaping forward into a new future.

As we transition from current habitual concepts and a fabricated persona, we shed the past and pivot into a renewed spirit and sense of vision.

Visionary Human gives rise to questions of survival and demonstrates how art continually pushes us to reimagine our existence.

Visionary human is open only to 2D and jewelry artists.

(3D artists are welcome to apply within toMORROw Sculpture parallel show.)

Artworks for Visionary Human are accepted in all 2D media and jewelry artists, relating to the animalistic, instinctual, primitive, intuitive and surreal deep perception of nature of existence. Exploring and visually projecting indigenous as well as contemporary, dream-state as well as psychedelic states of consciousness. Reality reimagined and dream visualized within indistinct boundaries of fact and fiction. Artists are asked to construct their version of reality and self.

Artists in this show are encouraged to draw from centuries-old practices while imbuing them with fresh perspectives to examine issues bubbling up in today’s volatile cultural and environmental climate.

This extraordinary exhibit is open to all artists.
Refer to the website for further information. All general fees and commissions found on entry forms, located on the exhibit schedule.

For further questions contact Barbara Sitar, Art Curator and Gallery Director at bsitar66@gmail.com
