Dancing with Sea Lions
The Dancing With Sea Lions project began as a fundraiser for the 20th Anniversary of the Florence Events Center. The volunteers of the Florence Arts, Culture, and Entertainment nonprofit group (previously known as the Friends of the FEC) headed up this project in conjunction with the Florence Events Center Staff. Twenty life size sea lion sculptures were each painted by a different artist. All of them were displayed with their sponsors along the Oregon Coast till October of 2016, when they were then purchased by businesses and individuals. Fifteen of them are still publicly displayed in Florence and near by coastal locations. See our 'Where are they now' map for their current locations, and check our blog for updates. Share your Dancing Sea Lion pics with us and we'll add them to our Gallery of images.
Project Name: Thalassa
Artist Brian Bloss found his Dancing With Sea Lions inspiration in the Greek legend of Thalassa. With all the life of the ocean flowing from her hair, Thalassa is more a living embodiment of the sea, rather than a Goddess.
A multifaceted artist, the works of Brian Bloss cover many genres including painting, photography, and animation. His work has been exhibited across the Pacific North-West as well as across the globe.
Brian used gesso, high quality acrylics (phalo blue -green shade, titanium white, gold green, gold flake, bone black).
