“Aaahh,” it’s that feeling of total relaxation and bliss as you settle into your own peaceful corner of the world. Is it a cozy room? A mountaintop? Or maybe the sandy shores as the waves roll on top of your toes? Wherever it is, that’s your happy place.
The Paso Robles Art Association asked artists of all media (ranging from photography to acrylic paintings to glass works) to tap into that feeling for its latest exhibition, Paradise Found. The focus isn’t so much on a physical location, but a state of being. It is contentment, peace, and pleasure. It is here, hereafter, and beyond. The Paradise Found exhibit will be on display at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles through July 31. The studio is located at 1130 Pine St. and is open Monday through Wednesday from noon to 4 p.m., Thursdays and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 9 p.m. Visit studiosonthepark.org for more information.
