101 WAYS TO PLAY on the Central Coast

GALLERIES John Ramos he John Ramos Gallery features original paintings and fine art prints by California artist John Ramos. John relocated to the Central Coast from Laguna Beach in 1987 after establishing John Ramos Publishing. He and his wife Donna Ramos, the Gallery Coordinator, prints limited edition prints that have been collected all over the United States and abroad for the last 33 years. Along with John’s original works, the gallery features a custom-framing studio that create beautiful and unique mats


and frames for all the paintings and prints. Many of the print images are from commissioned paintings by John. They are published by John Ramos Publishing Company and shared with collectors who feel the emotion, see the beauty, and want to live with the art. When asked what inspires him, John replied, “Nature, the strong energy of Big Sur, and the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean inspire my paintings. Just as much as a sunset or sunrise with the brilliant vibrating colors

of the beginning of the day, or the ending of another spectacular day on the Central Coast of California. I’ve been inspired to paint here for over 20 years, and it continues on to this day with my new painting of Baywood with a winter sunset reflecting colors all over the bay and throughout the sky” John Ramos Gallery is located in Downtown Morro Bay

at 407 Morro Bay Blvd, on the corner of Monterey Street, in the large brick building that was once the 1930 Post Office. They are celebrating two years in this location. Previously the gallery was located in San Luis Obispo for 10 years, and then in Baja California for 5 years until 2012 when they opened in Morro Bay.

THE RAMOS GALLERY is located in Downtown Morro Bay in a 1930‘s historic brick building located at 407 Morro Bay Blvd. ORIGINAL PAINTINGS, PRINTS, AND GIFTS by local artist John Ramos. Exit Hwy.1 at Morro Bay Blvd. Hours: 11am-5pm, Wednesday-Sunday We look forward to seeing you here! 805.772.4700

101 WAYS TO PLAY on the Central Coast

GALLERIES Sea Side Gallery Fine Art in the Heart of Pismo Beach ne of the early surprises for Seaside Gallery owners Tom and Sherie Burgher when they acquired the business in 2008 was they discovered the gallery was better known in Fresno and Bakersfield than in SLO County. They quickly modified the logo with the phrase “Fine Art in the Heart of Pismo Beach” complete with a red heart. People now find it easy to relate to that phrase. Each area of the 1200-foot gallery offers a different artist and a wide variety of beautiful paintings, from photo realistic, impressionistic, expressionistic and abstract art


and a permanent area of western art. The gallery offers original oils and high quality gicleés (process of recreating art by laser spray inking), acrylics, sculptures and fine art photography. Seaside Gallery has operated continuously for 18 years. When the current owners bought the business at the beginning of 2008, they had a vision and a business model for making Seaside Gallery a destination fine art gallery halfway between the traditional art venues of Carmel, California and Laguna Beach, California. They represent approximately 40 artists

on a rotational basis. They serve established art collectors seeking significant art from artists of international repute and visitors seeking local artists as keepsakes of their visit to Pismo Beach. Tom and Sherie seek new artists from around the world and the nation, but the collection also has fantastic selections from California including several local professional artists. They pride themselves on

presenting art genres, techniques, and styles that are not often found in other art galleries and they are especially pleased to bring significant artists of great renown such as Leon Oks, George Gallo, Bill Churchill and Tom Browning to the Central Coast. In 2010, Tom and Sherie initiated the SLO-Poke Western Art Rodeo, which exhibits over 100 works of 40 well-known western artists every July with a grand opening on the Independence Day weekend. It is their objective to make this a stand-alone legacy annual event to bring affluent visitors to SLO-County and Pismo Beach. Seaside Gallery is also working with the City of Pismo Beach toward the goal of a city-sponsored annual art event that would make Pismo Beach truly an art destination city halfway between Carmel and Laguna Beach. Although Tom & Sherie are often on-site on the weekends, Seaside Gallery is blessed with a wonderful staff of Art Consultants including Lynne Jelderyks, Karen Peterson and Giovanna Schaffer who are committed to providing excellent service to our artists while diligently serving our customers and art collectors. Seaside Gallery is open 7 days a week, 362 days a year, from10 am to 5 pm (opening 11 am Sundays). You may view their art and videos on, watch walk-throughs on Channel 10 or Channel 27 on your local cable channel, or see what people are saying on Facebook/SeasideGalleryPismo.

OCEANO The Oceano sand dune area is recognized by scientists, conservationists, government agencies, and the public as the fineSt., most extensive coastal dunes remaining in California. Most of the material that forms these dunes has been carried down to the ocean by various rivers and creeks, deposited here by ocean currents, and then shaped by the wind into the dunes that we see today.


A beautiful beach with many activities to participate in, such as tennis, horseback riding, scuba diving, eating, shopping, bowling, and at the end of your busy day take stroll down the 1200 ft. Pismo Pier and enjoy the great central coast sunset! Visit for a comprehensive list of events & locations.

amily-owned and operated ManRock Brewing Company is a gem thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on the Central Coast now for two years. 6 months ago they moved to a great location in Grover Beach, near AJ Spurs. They continue to offer the benefits of Great Craft Beer onsite. How lucky are we! The tasting room is open 7 days a week, serving wood-fired


pizzas, but also offers a small grub menu. ManRock pride themselves on making quality beer and pizza within a friendly-family style environment. Mike, Deshia, Paige and Blake Hiebner and their team Ricky Uc, Justin Unruh, Pam Horton and Debbie Miller keep you coming back for more. Deshia says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our biggest challenge is making enough beer fast

We have been humbled to see the strength of community support for ManRock. A day doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go by without someone asking what

they can do to help us grow. Many community members showed up during t build-out of our the new loc location near A.J. Spurs, with hammers hammers, ladders, tool belts and shovels to help. Everyone wanted this move to happen and countless people were involved to see that it did. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What an absolutely humbling experience for us to see what the five Cities is all aboutâ&#x20AC;Ś Community! Our hearts are big for our community and one visit into ManRock Brewery shows it.. Thank you, Central Coast, for all of your support!â&#x20AC;?
