Come to the Carmel Art Festival May 12 - 15, 2011

For the past 10 years I have been involved with the Carmel Art Festival, half of that time as a board member. This is a terrific community event for Carmel-by-the-Sea in which 60 plein air artists come to the area to paint the beautiful vistas for 2 days. Devendorf Park and adjacent Mission Street (which is closed off for us for the weekend) is the site of this event now in its 18th year. Art collectors come from all over to bid on these paintings on Saturday, May 14. There is also a Quick Draw on Sunday, May 15 for smaller paintings by the winning artists.

 And if you can't be there, you can participate in our "absentee bidding"  program; ALL 120 paintings submitted into the Carmel Art Festival will be put online the morning of May 14!! (That's one of my jobs.)

Many galleries in Carmel-by-the-Sea schedule their own shows, receptions and painting demonstrations to coincide with the Carmel Art Festival. These will be publicized in our festival booklet handed out free during the event.

Latest information will be posted on our website (that's another hat I wear - we are a non-profit organization helping youth art programs in the area)

And if you should be in Carmel during May 12-15, come say 'hello', I will be wearing a WHITE hat in the festival area. We have a great time, and it's for an excellent cause, helping the next generation of artists in Carmel.

It's been a long time since I've been in Carmel - and in a town that's known for art galleries, this looks to be a wonderful event.  I hope it's a big success!

Hi Margaret: Especially in this economy this event helps so many: the kids, of course, plus the galleries because we bring so many people into town, and then the artists themselves. Many of the artists who have been juried into the event (it's amazing how many apply for the 60 spots in the festival) use the Carmel Art Festival as credentials. And those who do not have a representing art gallery in Carmel, get snapped up by a gallery during the event. And overall, it helps the City of Carmel retain it's "artists" feeling - when you have 60 artists painting in the area, people love to go and find them actually paint.
