Looking for local Art?
The County houses several galleries and association. One of them is the Art Center Morro Bay.
You can’t miss the large purple building on Main Street in downtown Morro Bay, known as Art Center Morro Bay. This is the home for a variety of local and far away artists who are members of the Morro Bay Art Association.
Special exhibits featuring national and international artists, such as the Pastel Society of the West Coast are presented. Summer 2017 will delight visitors to the gallery with exhibits such as “Homage to the Ranches,” a tribute to the vanishing ranch life, May 4 to June 12, “On and Off the Wall,” with work from The Painters Group and Central Coast Sculptors Group, and “Let’s Rock,” a perspective on Morro Rock, June 15 to July 30, with “Pushing Boundaries-Exploring Abstraction,” a National Juried show, August 3 to September 18. An artist reception is held on Sundays during the first week of the shows.
The center always has a variety of changing exhibits and merits a visit. While you’re in Morro Bay, stay the day – have lunch and a nice walk on the beach.
