Mermaids In The Basement | Art Walk Second Saturdays
August 13th reception 4-7 PM
New work by Jennifer Perlmutter painted in the gallery on Dolores. “You never know when inspiration will hit and while the basement has its limitations, it is not void of revelations for a willing artist. The sea and sky of the area have influenced my work in a positive way. I’ve drawn inspiration from the coastline, seals, spanish moss, wharf, and poetry of this place.
“Mermaids in the basement” is a phrase from an Emily Dickenson poem, “By The Sea”. The gallery in Carmel by the Sea is just a few blocks from one of the world’s most fantastic beaches with powder sand, cypress silhouettes, and breath taking sunsets. The magic of this place creeps into every corner of Carmel, including basements.
We are joined by local trio, the Sea Dogs and the Mermaid. Reception takes place during the Carmel Art walk, where you can visit 13 other artist owned galleries from 4pm-7pm. Collaborative paint project on Mannequin to be auctioned off to benefit Youth Arts!!
