Yes, we can legally sell Posters & T-Shirts at the Carmel Art Festival

IRONING OUT SOME WRINKLES FOR THE CARMEL ART FESTIVAL ON MAY 16 - 19, 2013.

As a Board Member, I get involved in some of the "wrinkles" that come up every year, both before, during and after the Carmel Art Festival. We have been organizing this renowned Plein Air event for 20 years, you would think that it would be smooth sailing by now. 

However, now that there is a new Mayor in town (no the last one wasn't Clint Eastwood, he has not been Mayor in Carmel-by-the-Sea since 1986-88 - check out the interesting story as to WHY he was mayor here http://www.clinteastwood.net/mayor/). But I digress.

The new mayor is Jason Burnett and he's a great guy, goodlooking too! The signs of the times have it that now everything is done strictly by the book (or by-laws, ordinances, or whatever). Not that it necessarily "wasn't" in the past, it's just sometimes stuff slipped through, year after year.

SO WHAT DID I RUN INTO? THERE WAS A QUESTION OF "COMPLIANCE" WHETHER OR NOT WE COULD SELL POSTERS & T-SHIRTS IN THE PUBLIC PARK.

Mind you, this is something that the festival has done forever, maybe even all of the 20 years that it's been organized. So, anyway, here I was meeting with Margie, the Compliance Officer at City Hall, figuring out where we stood. The fact that we'd possibly DONE WRONG for many years (which was brought up at the last Council Meeting by a former concilmember, Barbara Livingston), was the question.

Poring over endless pages of ordinances on paper in a BIG BOOK - I couldn't believe it either, you'd think it would be ONLINE - it was decreed that:

IT IS ALRIGHT FOR THE CARMEL ART FESTIVAL TO SELL POSTERS AND T-SHIRTS IN THE CITY'S DEVENDORF PARK BY THE CARMEL ART FESTIVAL. YEAH!!

So relieved was I (the crowd would lynch us if we didn't sell those gorgeous posters and t-shirts), that I came back and gifted Margie a 2013 Carmel Art Festival Poster. (Hope that will not be construed as "bribery" since I gave her the poster AFTER THE RULING. )

BELOW IS THIS YEAR'S POSTER WHICH YOU WILL NOW LEGALLY BE ABLE TO PURCHASE AT THE CARMEL ART FESTIVAL IN DEVENDORF PARK BETWEEN MAY 16 & 19, 2013.

By the way, the image on the poster is also printed on our T-SHIRTS which you can now LEGALLY also purchase in the park!!

AND WHEN YOU COME TO THE FESTIVAL, BE SURE TO LOOK ME UP.

I am the one that will be auctioning off & selling the art (all legally) that was painted by 60 of the best plein air artists from around the country who have been juried into the festival.

Good evening Hella, what a beautiful poster and am so glad you got the kinks worked out.  That one will definitely be a collector's item..

Hella, just have a good time. Forget about the stinking (by-laws, ordinances, or whatever)

Maria: I love that poster. The painting was the "People's Choice" last year.

Judith: It's amazing how many people tell me that they have every poster (or a large number of them) from past years. Many people frame them.

Mark: I absolutely have a great time around so many talented plein air artists and the collectors who come to town to purchase their art.

Mark: Carmel-by-the-Sea is a beautiful place and many artists still come here to paint it.

You are so gifted doing so many different things. I would love to be there and would come away with one of those great looking t-shirts and who knows what else.

Debbie: It is really a fabulous event. The art that is being produced by the plein air artists over a 2-day period is astonighing. Collectors come from around the country to purchase the 120 paintings in the competition. And, of course, the T-shirts and posters that have the image of last year's "People's Choice Award" on them. Many galleries in town have functions as well, so it's a great weekend to buy art and party in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

I remember our three visit a number of years ago. It is such a magical place and truly understand why you enjoy being there.
