In conjunction with The Painter’s Group, the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art presents Brushstrokes 2019.
This year’s Brushstrokes exhibition was open to artists across California. Exhibition juror Jerry McLaughlin selected 51 paintings from 338 artworks submitted.
McLaughlin has a wide reputation for his distinguished art and his dynamic teaching abilities. His popular book, Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts & Conversations, and the workshops he conducts around the world, have inspired new creativity. McLaughlin holds a Doctorate of Medicine degree from the University of Cincinnati and a Teaching Certificate from the University of Washington. He has multiple educational publications and teaching awards to his credit.
About painting, McLaughlin says, “There is something so amazing about taking feelings, thoughts, ideas, and moods—these complex, intangible, amorphous things that are so real to us and live so palpably inside us—and translating those onto a surface, something other people can see and experience.”
Brushstrokes 2019 is a biennial exhibit sponsored by The Painters Group, one of the six artist groups affiliated with the Museum of Art. Its mission is to connect artists with other artists, to support members by providing a sense of community and atmosphere conducive to artistic experimentation and learning, and to provide a forum where member artists can participate in exhibitions and workshops.
An opening reception will take place in conjunction with Art After Dark on Friday, September 6 from 6–9PM.
