Gallery Schedule

John Seed

Paintings from Then and Now

September 3, 2022 - October 30, 2022
Saturdays & Sundays 11am - 4pm
Cambria Center for the Arts - Gallery

When he first showed his work in 1984 John Seed was painting large oil paintings with bold, expressionistic subject matter. Now, living in Cambria, he paints small semi-abstract watercolors loosely based on local scenery. Seed's CAA exhibition will feature 3 large oils, including "Wine and Roses," which was included in his 1984 one-man show at Newspace Gallery in Los Angeles. On the opposite wall Seed will show a broad selection of his watercolors. There will also be a display of some of the books and magazines he has written or contributed to in his nearly 2 decades as an active art writer. 



Marcie Begleiter

WHAT WILL REMAIN - also showing "Small Gems"

November 5, 2022 - December 31, 2022
Saturdays & Sundays 11am - 4pm
Cambria Center for the Arts - Gallery

Marcie Begleiter has participated in shows throughout the US and in Germany. This exhibit is part of the ongoing series that explores the vibrancy of nature and its shape-shifting ability to evolve and survive. Working in and around the boundaries of Contemporary Surrealism, Eco-Feminism, and Biomorphism, this work explores hidden systems, secret codes, and fantastic micro-organisms; it’s an intellectual as well as instinctual response to what is happening in 'nature'. Materials include watercolor, ink, graphite, ceramics, photography and more. Marcie currently enjoys life on the Central Coast in Los Osos, California.

Small Gems was a popular format for CCA’s holiday shows in past years, and the Gallery is happy to revive it this year. Local artists will be displaying their creativity using any 2D medium on small canvases. These ‘Small Gems’ will be available for purchase to help you find that perfect gift.
