The Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present “Striking Oil," a juried exhibition in the main gallery. This event is a collective of fine oil paintings featuring accomplished artists throughout the Central Coast.
We are fortunate to have Jason Mayr as the judge for this event. Jason previously owned an art gallery and has been a professional artist and teacher for over fifteen years. He began his career as an impressionistic painter and later pivoted to the chiaroscuro style of the Old Masters. Today, Jason's primary focus is on understanding how to manipulate paint to capture light and shadow. The result is deep variations of color in subtle gradations that create dramatic effects. Jason imparts his knowledge to students who wish to paint in the classic styles of Rembrandt and Leffel.
This event is open to all oil painters. For more information and entry requirements, visit www.artcentermorrobay.org
Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, February 12th, 2pm-4pm. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily.
