Erin Perry is showing collage and mixed-media works at the Cambria Library in June. I’m a sucker for a shadow box. You can find the new Cambria Library at 1043 Main St. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

A portion of sales will benefit the Friends of the Cambria Library.

I mentioned San Luis Obispo Museum of Art’s children’s summer classes last time. Morro Bay Art Association also has summer classes and workshops at the Art Center, 835 Main St, Morro Bay. Member Lee Messenger has several classes planned for ages 4 and 5 — accompanied by an adult — to age 9 continuing on Saturday mornings June 28, July 12 and 19.

Adult classes include one with Paula Teplitz on sculptural paper mache July 5 and 12. See her work on display at the Art Center, too. Call 772-2504 for details about these and other classes.

Festival Mozaic invites you to preview the 2014 poster by Arroyo Grande artist Sharon Harris. She titled her painting “Antonin’s Dance” and says it was inspired by a performance of the “Dumky” trio by Antonin Dvorak at the Festival Mozaic Winter-Mezzo series. The 2014 poster release party is set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. July 2 at Café Roma, 1020 Railroad Ave., San Luis Obispo.

The original painting will be auctioned off during the summer festival, July 17-27, to benefit Festival Mozaic. Visit for more information.

Page Graeber will show acrylic and watercolor paintings through the rest of the month at Pianetta Wine Tasting Room, 829 13th St., Paso Robles.

Steynberg Gallery at 1531 Monterey St. in San Luis Obispo has 12 recent abstract paintings by Jack Artusio through July 27. The show is called “Meditations from Tishlini.”

Laurel Sherrie always seems to find a new and fun place to show her work. See a few of her paintings at Breezeway Deli in San Luis Obispo through July. The spot is formerly the Crushed Grape at 319 Madonna Road in San Luis Obispo.

Brian P. Lawler has taken some of his panoramic images on the road. His recent exhibit at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art will stick with me for a long while. Take a look through Aug. 23 at the South County Historical Society, IOOF Hall, 128 Bridge St, in Arroyo Grande. Hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Several of the Cal Poly professor’s photos are replicas of images taken in the early 20th century. New to the show is a pair of historic and modern photos of the Arroyo Grande Village.
