Reception Night and Art Walk for July 2017!!

RECEPTION NIGHT and ART WALK FRIDAY

The morning started out foggy and drippy in Morro Bay, but ended with a beautiful sky and fantastic views from the Gallery. The weather forecasts for this weekend say that inland they will have high temps again, so that will bring more folks to the coast…and into the Gallery. Lots of those folks were out in force in Morro Bay this evening in anticipation of the inland hot weather, and it was great seeing them.

Reception Night and Art Walk for May 2017



RECEPTION NIGHT and ART WALK FRIDAY



Craig’s and Yael’s shows have brought in the customers this month. All the beautiful colors and textures of Yael’s photography and incredible renderings of Craig’s paintings heralded in the month of May. And the customers have loved all the wonderful choices that their shows have offered them—framed pieces, greeting cards, folios of all sizes, bookmarks, and much more. Look how great our Featured Artists looked this evening as they got ready to meet and greet the customers.


























And with all the activities planned in Morro Bay this month, MOTHER’S DAY on Sunday, the AMGEN TOUR on Monday and Tuesday (remember parking will be challenging on those days so come to the Gallery by 9:30am at the latest), MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND from the 27th-29th (with Art in the Park as well)—we have lots to look forward to with tourists and locals coming to visit. So many happy faces tonight. We really had so much fun.
