Our First Community Art Contest,
"Inspired Impressions of Our Rural Valley!"
was a Wonderful Experience for All!
In collaboration with the Carmel Valley Art Association, on April 18th CVA sponsored our first Art Contest and Show, "Inspired Impressions of Our Rural Valley!"
Event coordinators Karin Strasser Kauffman (CVA) and Shelley Aliotti (CVAA), with the help of our Boards and members, gave us a sunning and successful event! An estimated 500 community members participated and visited the outdoor tent which exhibited more than 160 pieces of submitted art. Local artists entered a great variety different art categories such as oil, print, pastel, watercolor, photography, and sculpture. Student contributions from local elementary and secondary schools were awarded ribbons.
Carmel Valley Association is one of the oldest, largest, and most successful community organizations in Monterey County. We are entirely volunteer, with no paid employees.
Our mission is to defend the beauty, resources and rural character of our beautiful valley. We do that by working with residents, businesses, and government.
CVA was instrumental in the adoption of the Carmel Valley Master Plan and recently settled a lawsuit with Monterey County regarding traffic measurement and capping future development on very favorable terms for our valley.
Our volunteer experts represent Carmel Valley's interest, testifying before governmental bodies concerning development, water, traffic, road signs, and other environmental issues.
We keep valley residents informed about important issues and events with our online Caleon for their ndar, our weekly email Bulletin, which goes to over 700 residents,
and our quarterly Newsletter, which is mailed to over 7,000 valley addresses.
