In 2013, the Festival will once again include the Plein Air competition, silent auction and sales, Sculpture-in-the-Park with live music, as well as a Quick Draw by the winning artists, and Kids Art Day.
Many galleries in Carmel-by-the-Sea schedule their own shows, receptions and painting demonstrations to coincide with the Carmel Art Festival. These are publicized in our festival booklet handed out FREE during the event. It's up to the galleries to get the information to their clients and the festival organizers.
Posters from the current and past years are for sale throughout the year. See link on the navigation bar. Just email us your request.
