Monterey Arts Council showcases Everett Alvarez High artists

Meet the great young artists from Everett Alvarez High School at the Third Annual High School Art Exhibition presented by the Arts Council for Monterey County. The event takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 24. The Arts Council Gallery is at Sunset Center, Carmel, Room 5. Guests will meet the young artists and have the opportunity to purchase their work.

This is the third high school exhibition and organizers are always impressed with the talent the young artists demonstrate. They also find moving the way that experienced artists and gallery owners come by to meet the young artists and encourage them to continue their work. Many pieces were sold last year – including three to Community Hospital.

The Arts Council previously featured King City High School and Monterey High School.

Admission is free but RSVP is required:
