Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present Perspectives. 


This exhibit explores how perspective gives a three-dimensional feeling to a flat surface. Linier perspective creates the illusion of distance to a vanishing point.  It’s a system of representing the way objects appear to get smaller and closer together, the farther away they are from the viewer. We see parallel lines as converging in the distance, although in reality they really don’t.  Roads and railway lines are obvious examples.

Multiple vanishing points such as a cityscapes, enable a more naturalistic representation.

Atmospheric or aerial perspective, creates the sense of distance by simulating changes affected by color such as blue in a mountain as it meets the sky.  

This exhibit celebrates artistic expression in all media to include textile, encaustic, mixed media, oil, watercolor, acrylic and photography.  This theme extends itself to anything that represents a variety of perspectives.
