    PGAC Artists’ Exhibit, Gill Gallery

    We are proud to present a sampling of the creative work generated by our studio artists. The Pacific Grove Art Center exists to provide our community with a place to experience and express its creative spirit. They support that creative endeavor through a variety of programs and collaborations that give back to the community. A number of these artists contribute through exhibitions, as well as teaching workshops, classes, and volunteering.

     

    Azadeh R. Nikou – PARDIS (Paradise), Dyke Gallery

    I draw inspiration primarily from the Hawaiian Islands and Monterey Bay vignettes posed against a backdrop of the infinite Pacific blue shades. My gestural application of colors sips through a life-time interest in Persian miniature paintings, French Impressionism of Monet, and the 10th Century Chinese Song landscape paintings. This is to me a manifestation of Mother Nature’s paradise one may be touched by with grace.

    Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters Association Signature Member Show (MBPAPA) – Serendipity, Annand Gallery

    The paintings in the show are completed in plein air by members who have qualified as Signature members and then juried into the show. Joaquin Turner, the esteemed local artist and gallery owner from Carmel is the judge and juror for the show. The awards will be announced during the opening reception.

     

    Tiny Treasures Annual Miniature Show Fundraiser – Boyer Gallery & Small Halls

    Every year generous and talented artists from our local community contribute unique miniature artwork for this exciting fundraiser, “Tiny Treasures.” Treasures indeed! Over 100 pieces of art were donated this year, consisting of the following media: oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, printmaking, collage, pencil, ink, mixed media, photography, sculpture, textile and more! This myriad display of creativity features the talent of artists who kindly support our mission of cultivating the arts within the Monterey area by providing creative experiences that inspire and engage us, touch our hearts, challenge our minds and enrich our lives.

    Since 1969, Pacific Grove Art Center has been a community-based nonprofit seeking to enhance art appreciation and encourage the creation of art. With the desire to have art available to everyone, PGAC has held low-cost classes, free exhibits, and offered reduced rent for artist’s studios for over 50 years. Both emerging and established artists are professionally shown in their historic galleries, and large group shows can provide the first step into the art world for many.
