Although the Carmel Art Festival is touted as a "plein air" event where 120 paintings are being crafted by 60 artists over a 2-day period, there is another exciting feature to this FREE OPEN AIR event in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea this weekend.
Sculpture-in-the-Park in Devendorf Park.
Seven galleries in Carmel-by-the-Sea will be EXHIBITING SCULPTURE IN DEVENDORF PARK. These are being placed there this morning as an added art feature so that the public can stroll or sit in the park while listening to LIVE MUSIC. See "Schedule of Events" for band names and times by clicking here www.carmelartfestival.org/eventschedule2013.html
There will also be LIVE SCULPTING DEMONTRATIONS by BENNETT SCULPTURE CARMEL.
The galleries that are participating are: (I'll be adding photos later in the day when sculptures have been placed.)
BENNETT SCULPTURE CARMEL
BIG SUR GALLERY
CLASSIC ART GALLERY
GEORGE RODRIGUE (BLUE DOG)
ZANTMAN ART GALLERIES
WHAT ELSE CAN YOU SEE TODAY?
We will be putting up the tent today on Mission Street (which is closed to traffic) between Ocean Avenue and 6th. This is where the artists will be displaying the 120 paintings they are painting right now as I write this! Artists are all over the Monterey, Pebble Beach, Big Sur, Carmel Valley, Carmel and, of course, the Carmel Beach area painting. This they will do all day today and tomorrow, then bring in 2 paintings each to submit into the competition (that will be tomorrow at the end of the day and you can start viewing them tomorrow, Friday, evening.)
We will also open up our information tent in Devendorf Park which will be SELLING POSTERS, T-SHIRTS, HATS & TOTES. Click here to see what posters will be available. You can even order them online www.carmelartfestival.org/posters.html
Frankly, today is like a "soft opening" day with a lot of comings and goings getting the weekend event set up.
