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:

Featured 3D artists, 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. This event is free and open to the public.

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

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.
