Carmel Art Festival, Carmel-by-the-Sea California

This is a letter I just wrote to the publisher of the weekly Carmel Pine Cone newspaper, and I hope they print it in its entirety.

This "granting" process (a city grant that covers its own use fees) was an arduous process, involving going in front of the City Council several times, and working with the cultural commission and others for many hours over a period of months. But in the end they came through for us, and we can continue to bring this quality event to the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Carmel Art Festival, Carmel-by-the-Sea, California

 

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Carmel Art Festival, I would like to thank Mayor Steve Dallas and all the council members for working out the difficult grant situation for our non profit, all volunteer,  FREE annual event. As you know, we have not been able to pay the high Devendorf Park city use fees established several years ago which shrunk the Carmel Art Festival to just a closed-off Mission Street between Ocean & 6th. Now, by adding the adjacent park venue, we can once again offer Sculpture-in-the-Park exhibits from galleries around town plus watching the creative process of Steven Whyte, internationally acclaimed figurative sculptor whose work is displayed in the Smithsonian. And for those who want to just hang out and enjoy the day? Live bands will perform in Devendorf Park from Friday, May 19 through Sunday, May 21. Bring the kids especially Saturday afternoon when the Youth Arts Collective will have a workshop for the little ones. As for our valued art buyers who come to the Carmel Art Festival each year to add to their plein air collection, please get in touch with us. To celebrate our 24th year here in Carmel-by-the-Sea—and counting – we are honoring you with a special “Wet Art & Wine Reception” on Friday, May 19. The Mission Street venue will be closed between 7 & 9 PM to all but those who RSVP.  Please, see www.carmelartfestivalcalifornia.com

Good News! The Carmel Pine Cone published my letter pretty much in its entirety today, Friday, May 5th. 

It also covered the City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 2 where the "granting" was granted. A great day for the Carmel Art Festival and the city of Carmel-by-the-Sea.

That's pretty clever, Hella, slipping in a free advertisement for the Carmel Art Festival. Heh, heh.

I don't need to spend any more money on artwork and, besides, I have no place to hang anything new and no empty spots on flat surfaces.
