It’s hard to believe that this is the last day for 2016 and tomorrow will begin a New Year 2017! I hope everyone has an amazing New Year’s Day and we will be open at the Gallery so that customers will see all of our amazing artwork! The town is full of tourists and lots of people are coming to the Gallery to make purchases so we’ve had some great sale days.
The Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival is a yearly eco-tourism event promoting an understanding and appreciation of birds (throughout the month of January) and other wildlife and an awareness of environmental and conservation issues of the Central Coast, while contributing to the well-being of the Morro Bay community. The event is sponsored by the Morro Coast Audubon Society in collaboration with California State Parks, the Central Coast State Parks Association, and the City of Morro Bay. For information, visit the website or call (805) 772-2694, then dial O. You will see lots of photographers from all over the world attending the events of this festival and they, in turn, attract tons of tourists to Morro Bay this month.
SET UP DAY
Our fabulous Set Up Day Team was in true form installing Virginia Mack’s amazing watercolors! Her show is awesome and our Opening Reception Night is Friday, January 13th from 5-8pm. Please mark your calendars and come and support your fellow artists. We’d love to see you and so would the customers. And the weekend of our Reception Night is a 3-day weekend with the celebration of Martin Luther King’s holiday!! So again, lots of tourists coming to Morro Bay!!
And everyone worked extra hard getting Aris Zavitsanos’s work up as his parents were helping to get his work to the Gallery. The team did a great job in getting Aris’s wall redone and show installed.
And we helped get Yael Korin's, a new member and wonderful photographer, wall up with her amazing photography as well! Welcome aboard, Yael! Yael and her family live in Los Osos.
Another new member, Jean Woodruff and an amazing painter, got her wall up as well! Welcome aboard, Jean! Jean lives in Atascadero and has just moved to the Central Coast from Salinas. And after getting walls done we all went down to the Dutchman for lunch! We had quite a crowd and had a great lunch.
2016 was a wonderful year, full of new friends and lots of amazing artwork and great customer connections. 2017 looks to be even better with even more new artists wanting to participate in our beautiful Gallery and even more new customers discovering our incredibly talented artists and wanting to support us all!
Cheers to the NEW YEAR everyone!
See you soon
