The Carmel Arts Council and I would like to thank the Current for publishing such a wonderful article about the Carmel Arts Council’s summer art show, The Idle Mind.
The article was extremely informative regarding the art exhibition and did an excellent job of explaining the CAC’s purpose for producing this show.
We would also like to thank Heather Collins for her interview expertise. Heather did a fantastic job of talking to our two student curators, Alex Thomas and Caroline Armstrong, and she made our curators feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the interview.
Heather’s questions were interesting, challenging and always very perceptive. This was particularly important as part of a curator’s job is to discuss their art exhibition in a way that other’s understand. Both Harriet Warkel, the curator’s mentor, and I thought Heather’s interview was one of the best interviews given to our curators.
It is through our Emerging Curator Program and the summer art show that the CAC is able to provide opportunities for high school students to investigate career paths in the Arts. The Carmel Arts Council is very appreciative of all the support the Current gives to us as we strive to support and promote the Arts and Art education in Carmel…It is through your support that we are able to carry out our mission.
By the way, this program was passed out to over 300 people during our opening night reception and will continue to be given to all those who visit our gallery through August 27th.
Many thanks once again for all your help and support!
