The Monterey County coast is for sure one of the most beautiful coasts in the world. It has always been a huge inspiration for artists of all kinds. As Carmel Visual Arts wades through the ramifications of the past year’s global pandemic, we look forward to continuing our presence with the upcoming workshops along the coast and into Carmel Valley.
I have always been a supporter of collaboration. There are so many artists and art organizations in the Monterey Bay area that have also been struggling. We have been in discussions with some of them and we hope to be collaborating with them even more this year. We all are in this together and the recovery of the arts will take some time. I want to send out a hearty THANK YOU for all the support we have received since the pandemic started. So many of you have held-on while we rescheduled workshops in 2020.
With that, I have been getting excited about our upcoming workshops and getting together with a few artists at a time. All of our Spring 2021 outdoor workshops are FULL and Terri Ford’s pastel workshop in June is getting close! Although many of us will have or will be getting vaccinated before attending these workshops, we will still need to use caution and keep socially distanced and everyone will maintain wearing masks during the classes. Getting together is such an important part of a healthy society. I am happy that we are moving in the right direction to be doing just that.
I hope to see you soon! Send me a note and let me know how you are doing.
Rich Brimer, Director
