Show canceled due to coronavirus closures, but here is some art to enjoy

Morro Bay Art Association is set host The Painters Group of San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, and their compelling, juried exhibit, “Brushstrokes 2020.”

This annual event is a collective of exceptional paintings, featuring works from current TPG and MBAA members throughout the Central Coast. A variety of accepted mediums include acrylic, oil, mixed media, watercolor, pastel and digital, encompassing a wide range of subject matter of figurative, landscape and abstract.

The juror, Marcia Harvey, is an award-winning artist who earned a Bachelor of Art degree in Studio Art from the University of California and Master of Fine Art degree from Washington State University. 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 witnessings. 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.”

Whether you are attending this striking exhibit to observe or to purchase, you are in for a delight!

“Brushstrokes” is on display in the Russell Gallery, upstairs, April 2 through May 11. Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, April 5, from 2-4 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. daily.
