Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present, The Morros, a collection of paintings in all media and styles that capture the color and energy of Morro Rock and sister formations.
This event is a celebration of the Nine Sisters or the Morros, a chain of volcanic mountains and hills that span east from Morro Bay, through San Luis Obispo County. Locals will debate whether there are seven sisters or nine in this family of geological formations. In fact, there may be more than fifteen peaks belonging to this string of volcanic plugs.
During this exhibit, Art Center Morro Bay will feature glass sculptor, George Jercich. George’s characteristic, hand blown glass sculptures, capture the spirit of Morro Bay and the Central Coast. George graduated from San Jose State University in 1984 with his MFA in Sculpture/Plastic Arts. He traveled throughout the USA, Europe and Asia seeking experiences in glass. He attended Pilchuck Glass School, the Interglas Symposium in Novy Bor, Czechoslovakia, participated in American/Thai Cultural Exchange Programs and co-instructed glassblowing at Ox-Bow Summer School of the Arts (SAIC). George is also the co-founder of the California Glass Exchange. George instructed glassblowing, glass forming, 3D design and sculpture courses at Cal Poly for over 35 years.
The Morros will be on display from June 27 through August 5, 2019. Meet the artists at the opening reception on Sunday, June 30, 2pm-4pm. This event is free and open to the public.
Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily.
