Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present Pushing Boundaries: Exploring Abstraction, an Annual National Juried Exhibit. Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be slight, partial, or complete, as abstraction in art exists along a continuum. Even art that aims for realism of the highest degree can be said to be abstract since perfect representation may be elusive.
We are fortunate to have award winning artist, Krista Harris, as the judge for this celebrated event. Krista is a professional artist of international fame. Her masterful use of vibrant color evokes energy, strength and simplicity. Her captivating work will lure you in to explore richly layered designs that reveal a deeper place – somewhere pure and personal.
Krista earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from East Carolina University. Krista exhibits in Dallas, Palm Desert, Chicago, Vermont, Telluride, Portland and other fine art galleries across the country. Her work is widely collected in private and corporate collections throughout the world, including Duke Memorial Cancer Center, Durham, NC; Northern Trust Bank, Chicago, IL; and the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Grand Cayman Island.
This exhibit celebrates artistic expression in all media. You will find a variety of subject matter spanning partial to total abstract.
“Pushing Boundaries” is on display from August 3 through September 11, 2017. Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, August 6, 2pm-4pm.
