Carmel Art Association

Mission

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!

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.

The 2020 Campaign begins November 12.
