Carmel-by-the-Sea hosts the second-annual Meet the Makers event on Oct. 12 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Stroll through the charming one-square-mile village sipping on Monterey County wines and meeting the artists who carry on the art colony legacy. The village is one of the most renowned artist colonies in the world ( adored by creatives like Salvador Dali and Francis McComas!) featuring more than 80 art galleries in the village –– with only 16 artist-owned galleries who create their art on site and are present daily to discuss their work, this event is to celebrate them along with the local winemakers and craft food-makers! All proceeds from the event benefit the Pete Figge Memorial Scholarship Fund –– a designated fund of the Monterey County Vintners & Growers Foundation. Keep an eye out for the blue lanterns marking participating art galleries.
