60 Juried Plein Air Artists in the
2020 Carmel Art Festival

The jury selection this year was especially tough because we had a lot of talented plein air artists apply including many past winners. Also, we had a large number of less established but highly talented artists seeking to get in. We wish we could have included more than the 60, our maximum, but that is a number that has historically been good for both artists and those who come to purchase the art.

Quick overview about the Carmel Art Festival

2020 Poster: "Twilight Showers" by Sally Jordan, 2019 "People's Choice Award".

In 2020, we will celebrate the 27th annual Carmel Art Festival, a non-profit public benefit event held to educate and inspire people of all ages about the visual arts.

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 exhibiton 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.

Sculpture-In-The-Park: Galleries in Carmel-by-the-Sea are also given the opportunity to exhibit sculptures in Devendorf Park to be enjoyed by festival attendees.

Online Viewing:Although we will post all paintings on this website each year, we have eliminated online bidding.
