October 2011 Reception

Gallery at Marina Square drew a great crowd to the monthly reception on October 14th. Susan Wood was featured artist, showing her watercolors, and the guest artist wall was covered with drawings from the Friday Life Drawing Group in their exhibit “Clothing Optional.”

The Friday Life Group first started to draw together back in 1981. Al Musso, in the center of the photo below, is the oldest member of the group and has been a member of the Friday Life Group almost from the beginning. Al won man of the year at Cayucos this year. We think he will be 95 this November! He has been an active member of the Cayucos and Morro Bay art world for many years after moving here from LA. He still teaches at the Cayucos Vets Hall.

Set-up Day and The Lunch Bunch—October 2011

At the end of every month, a new “Guest Artist” and a “Featured Artist” bring in their work for the new show. In addition, many artists of Gallery at Marina Square rotate their artwork. Afterwards, everyone gets together for lunch at local restaurant nearby.

Jack McNeal and Rod Baker help set up the featured artist.
Ardella ("Jo" Swanberg) looks relieved to have the
guest artist wall all set for the Friday Life Drawing Group.

Here’s our October “lunch bunch”:
