Carmel Art Association

Carmel, CA




The Carmel Art Association, founded in 1927, has a long and proud heritage. Many of its early members were among the greats in California art history. The artists not only brought prestige to the CAA but were also hard working members, serving on the Board of Directors, working on the building and active in all aspects of the organization, making the CAA what it is today, truly "owned and operated by the artists."

The organization sponsors numerous events throughout the year. These include artist demonstrations, lectures, films and concerts. All of these are open to the public and are without admission charge.

Membership: Only artist members of the Association may exhibit at the CAA. In order to become a member, an artist must have lived on the Monterey Peninsula for one year, have shown in two professional galleries and one competitive, and been accepted by the Board of Directors at the annual jury for membership. Another category of membership is the associate member. These are Friends of the Association who help support the organization. By paying dues, the associate members are automatically invited to all community events, receptions and parties.

The Carmel Art Association is located on Dolores Street between 5th and 6th. Mailing address: Carmel Art Association / P.O. Box 2271 / Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA 93921 (information as of 12/99)
