The Carmel Arts & Design District is beginning its season of warm weather events, starting with May’s debut of Drawn to the District on May 9.
Drawn to the District is a new idea where, “all types of artists are invited to create.” There will free arts supplies from ArtSplash Gallery for anyone who wants to join in the fun.
“With these lovely late spring evenings, I think the visitors will really enjoy being a part of the creative process,” said Stephanie Marshall, merchant liaison and event planner for the Arts District.
Drawn to the District will continue every weekend in May.
In addition, the May gallery walk will welcome in spring with Jan Aldridge Clark, a board member at the USA International Harp Competition.
ArtSplash Gallery will also feature an exhibit from Anna Baseva Afsfar, an artist originally from Lithuania and Russia. She paints in both watercolor and oils and has studied with teachers from around the world.
“She is a popular artist at the gallery and has a strong following of students,” Marshall said. “This will be a particularly nice collection of her work this May.”
And as usual with every second Saturday gallery walk, there will be a scavenger hunt with prizes. Participants can also pick up charms as a part of the monthly charm bracelet giveaway.
