Many well known artists and some emerging ones will be painting throughout the Monterey Peninsula for two days, May 15 & 16 (Thursday & Friday). Two paintings by each artists will be entered in the competition, displayed in open air tents on Mission Street adjacent to Devendorf Park in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Early viewing is always exciting on Friday evening under lights, when artists bring in their still-wet canvases.
Saturday morning, May 17, the 120 paintings are judged, followed by a silent auction for the rest of the day. At 6 PM, the auction closes with some of the paintings, those with 10 or more bids, going to live auction.
This is always a fun time because all the artists mill around while last minute bids are made. Successful buyers can meet and have their photos taken with the artists.
Festival attendees additionally enjoy the Sculpture In The Park exhibitions and demonstrations, kids come for the "Kids Make Art Day" part of the program, and everyone enjoys the live music in adjacent Devendorf Park.
To commemorate the May 15 - 18, 2014 event, festival posters from this and past years are sold in the park. These collectors posters can also be seen and purched from the website.
