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 Carmel Art Association is in its 96th year sitting atop the highest sand dune in the quaint village of Carmel-By-The-Sea. If the original CAA Artist Members could see the town now, they would be stunned by the population and use of natural resources today, compared to a hundred years ago. Along with other conservation changes, the CAA would like to take one more step in the right direction by installing solar panels. Switching to this renewable energy source will not only save money in the long run, but also help save the planet by reducing carbon emissions. Visitors come to the Carmel Art Association to view exquisite art created by the area’s most talented local artists. They also visit CAA to relax in our garden and tour our historic building. We trust they will appreciate our acknowledgement of climate change and the strides we're taking to foster social responsibility.

The Carmel Art Association is an organization and art gallery that we have been involved with for many years. We have purchased numerous pieces of art and met artists who are involved with CAA. We have enjoyed the staff, finding them knowledgeable and engaging. Having the artists “local” adds a dimension that we find compelling along with the variety of art being offered. In our opinion, CAA is the top art gallery on the Monterey Peninsula. Because of our strong feelings for CAA, we have introduced many of our friends to it. They, like us, have enjoyed all the interactions and the art offered. We consider it a must see when on the Peninsula.
