To advance the knowledge of and interest in art and create a spirit of cooperation and fellowship between artists and the people.
The Big Idea
In these trying times, 2022 seems a long way off. But the Carmel Art Association (CAA) looks forward to its 95th anniversary in August of that year. Their Big Idea, a 95th anniversary historic exhibition, will showcase artworks by late CAA members. The exhibition will commemorate some of the distinguished early California artists while celebrating the culture of Carmel’s renowned bohemian art colony. Since 1927, CAA has sought to advance the knowledge of and interest in art and create a spirit of cooperation and fellowship between artists and the people. They hope to keep that mission going into 2022 and beyond.
We have been patrons of the Carmel Art Association for 15 years. Living a few hours away, we don't get into Carmel as often as we would like. Now with the pandemic, we are enjoying the virtual tours and artist's features online and through social media. It's (almost) like being at the gallery and experiencing the beautiful work in person. Plus, we learn more about each artist and how they work, and we get to view their latest pieces. It's a ray of sunshine in this clouded world. Thank you CAA for all you do for your patrons, visitors, and community!
