Morro Bay Art in the Park – Labor Day Weekend

Paso Robles Art in the Park – Premiere in 2018
With the end of Paso ArtsFest, the expansion of the long-running and successful “Art in the Park” concept is coming to Paso Robles in 2018. In its 62nd annual season, Morro Bay Art in the Park is the second oldest continuous art show in California. Over half of the exhibitors reside in San Luis Obispo County. Art show Director Steve Powers has set the dates for the debut of Paso Robles Art in the Park in the downtown City Park on April 28 and 29 and returning on September 29 and 30. The Morro Bay shows will also continue the annually scheduled holiday weekends. Local artists and crafters who wish to exhibit their work in any show can register online at morrobayartinthepark.com or pasoroblesartinthepark.com

These shows demand the highest standards of quality and originality from the artists and craftsmen who participate. Among the 120 exhibits, local resident Deb Lysek will be showing and selling work from her Silk Marble Studio. “Silk is My Canvas” beautifully describes the techniques of marbling and painting translated to silk scarves, wall hangings, framed art pieces, wine bags and notecards.
