27th Carmel Art Festival – May 13 – 15, 2022
FREE public event.
A Historic Annual Event held in Carmel-by-the-Sea Since 1993
At Carmel Art Festival, We are proud that we can donate annually to the Youth Arts Collective which over its twenty years on the Monterey Peninsula has provided studio and exhibition opportunities to over 800 local youths. Our donation goes towards gallery space, supplies, personal and long term mentoring, art and life skills instruction and many other benefits supplied by YAC. Many galleries in Carmel-by-the-Sea schedule their own art shows, receptions, painting and sculpture demonstrations to coincide with the Carmel Art Festival.
Combining plein-air painting and live sculpting with exhibits, sales and lots of live music, the Carmel Art Festival takes over Devendorf Park for three days. Artists create their exhibition paintings outdoors on Wednesday and Thursday all around the Monterey Peninsula, bringing them to Devendorf Park on Friday afternoon for judging. The public can view and purchase these and other newly created paintings through Sunday. Weekend events also include Sculpture-in-the-Park, Kids-make-art day, and live music each day. On Sunday morning, winning artists engage in a Quick Draw competition with the results being sold via Silent Auction.
