The Cambria Allied Art Association is Non-Profit Organization and is open to all interested persons. Our members include artists, patrons and those who have an interest in the fine arts. Although the majority of our members live in Cambria, it is not a requirement of membership. Our mission is to foster, encourage and promote the arts in Cambria.

|June 9||Dennis Curry will speak at Bi-Monthly Program on Sunday, June 9 at 2:00pm. He is best known for his paintings and original prints of East African wildlife.
More on the Speaker
Curry will describe the history of his artistic evolution as an advocate for the environment with slides and a video.
Curry has always enjoyed drawing and painting the natural world. In high school he was able to get straight A's in Biology because of the pictures he drew. In college he combined his love for drawing animals with intaglio printing methods. These skills were later applied to the contemporary printmaking medium of Mylar Lithography in 1980. It was his first trip to East Africa that opened Curry's eyes to the beauty of the many endangered and unique animals roaming free there.
In 1984 Curry established the Blue Berry Printing Press of Cambria where he produced the widely collected series of prizewinning original prints. These are still available in galleries on the east Coast, Hawaii, and the studios on the Park in Paso Robles.
Since 1998 Curry has concentrated on oil painting in the rich natural environment of California. He says, "While much of the art of the past has dealt with the glories and follies of humankind, I feel a need to portray nature for its own sake with the hope of promoting value and respect for our unique planet and the varied forms of life we share with it." <<Hide

|Sept 16||Print demonstration by the Rosenthals: Rosey and Barbara.
There will be an article about the Rosenthals but this is a pre-article alert:
Printmakers Rosey and Barbara Rosenthal will include some hands on audience participation at their September 16th
presentation for our Bimonthly Program Series.
We will do some printing using old (void) credit cards, so try to save one you haven't cut up.
Also think about a simple line sketch that would fit on a credit card.
This is an exciting printing innovation that Barbara and Rosey have invented for our program. <<Hide
