Gallery Open Thursday's through Monday's

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present a very special exhibition, FLOWER POWER!

Flower Power is a slogan emblematic from the counter culture of the 1960’s. During the Summer of Love, flowers became powerful symbols of peace, a concept plucked from Buddhist art.

More than merely decorative, floral imagery has helped convey ideas from the refined to the revolutionary for thousands of years. Flowers in contemporary art are connected to particular cultural legacies but are also open to new interpretations, moored to the past yet provoking questions about our future.

This exhibit will demonstrate the flexibility of floral images to convey both timely and timeless themes. The flowers offer decorative appeal, symbolic and healing values, as well as ways of thinking about a wide range of topics—the natural environment in which we live, the communities we build, and the commodities we buy.

This exhibition will embrace the diversity of florals through 2 dimensional interpretations from scientific illustration, abstract, photorealism to large free style creations in oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, photography, digital media and mixed media. In addition, 3 dimensional art will include ceramic, glass, wood and floral sculptures. The ART OF IKEBANA will feature work of botanical artists, green professionals, flower growers and floral designers.

Find special something for your sweetheart! You'll find paintings in all media, photography, jewelry, pottery, glass Ikebana and other 3 dimensional artworks.

Art Center Morro Bay is open 12pm – 4pm, daily except Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

April 8 – May 24, 2021.

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present, Broken Nature.

While we grapple with a worldwide pandemic, the effects of global warming, drought, fire, climate change, divisions, hidden agendas, distorted realities, extinction and polluted oceans are all on the rise.

Will we find holistic approaches to leave behind an earth busting with life for our ancestors or one eerily devoid of activity? Can we mend the divides in our broken society or find strategies to unbreak the cycle to heal ourselves and the planet? Can we un-break and re-wild the nature and ourselves?

Art has the ability to communicate the complexities of socioeconomic, political and environmental issues in a way that is loud and unyielding in its resolve. This exhibit addresses consequences and the urgent need to live sustainably within the earth’s finite resources.

In celebration of Earth Day, April 22, 2021.

This exhibit celebrates artistic expression in all media to include textile, encaustic, mixed media, oil, watercolor, acrylic and photography. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open Thursday through Monday, 12pm – 4pm daily.
