    The 21st Annual Carmel Art Festival will take place Thursday thru Sunday, May 15 -18 in beautiful downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. This four-day event celebrates Carmel’s rich history of being an artist community and provides a rich cultural and educational experience for the locals and visitors.The event takes place in Devendorf Park as well as Mission Street between Ocean and 6th Street. Those who come will not only enjoy the art but sculpture a variety of live music from Friday through Sunday. Showcased in the festival is the Plein Air painting competition. 60 juried artists will compete painting outdoors for two days, Thursday and Friday, as they capture the images of the area’s natural beauty and history. These paintings can be viewed beginning Friday night after dusk. The silent auction begins once the bid sheets are posted. The silent auction continues thru 6 pm Saturday. Additional festival paintings as well as those that received no bid will be available for purchase at the starting bid price following the auction thru Sunday at 3 pm. Other times to note are: Meet the Artists, 3:30 pm – 5 pm; Artist Awards Ceremony, 5 pm; Live Auction, immediately follows Silent Auction estimated to be 6:15 pm.

    The live auction is always fun. The paintings that receive a full card of bids are placed into the live auction and interested bidders vie for the art. Highest bid gets the painting.
