Plein air painting in Carmel-by-the-Sea

Visual Arts Carmel-by-the-Sea may be the most famous place to find art in Monterey County, but it certainly doesn’t hold a monopoly on art. Works on display all around the county range from classical masters to modern sculpture, sometimes tucked in surprising places. The artistic scene stretches from Big Sur, where Henry Miller’s paintings are on display at the local library, to the slightly industrial setting of Sand City, a secret haven for artists who work on a large scale. Marina has an interesting sculpture garden amid the live oaks and chaparral. To learn about sculpting in metal, take a tour of the nearby Monterey Sculpture Center, where artists can bring their creations to be cast in bronze.

INSIDER TIP “Be sure to get off the main roads when touring the galleries in Carmel. There are a lot of independent galleries in the hidden courtyards and on side streets. You may even be able to meet and buy art directly from the artist.” – Steven Whyte, Local Sculptor
