Carmel Art Association


To advance the knowledge of and interest in art and create a spirit of cooperation and fellowship between artists and the public.

The Big Idea

The past few years have seen some challenges and changes to the Carmel Art Association, but we continue to offer the creations of local artist members, just like we’ve been offering for the past 95 years. This year proves not only a milestone, but our staff and Board have been busy developing a plan for the next 95. Our future depends on a continued healthy attitude toward art. Here’s your chance to be a part of the history and legacy of the art world of Monterey County. Our 95th Anniversary Historic Show started on-line in August, and continues in the CAA Gallery during November and December. We’ve collected some stellar early California art works by many of our past 550 artist members. We are a go-to destination for art lovers now, and aspire to remain so for a long time yet to come.

For us, the Carmel Art Association is a treasure we discovered fifteen years ago. We can’t wait to visit this jewel of galleries every time we visit the area. In our opinion the CAA has the best staff, and is one of the finest galleries, in Carmel. The friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful staff have become friends, and we enjoy visiting them as much as browsing the gallery to discover new artwork. It’s always a pleasure to see such a variety of artists, styles and mediums; something new every month. We’ve even been privileged to meet a few of our favorite artists! Our growing art collection gives us so much pleasure, reminding us of the beauty of Carmel and Monterey County. We hope the gallery can be appreciated for many more years to come.
