The blue-green sea, the cypress-studded headlands, the pine-covered shores--nature’s endowment of scenic beauty of the Monterey Peninsula has inspired and attracted artists --painters, photographers, writers and poets-- from the days of the Ohlone and the early explorers up to the present day. By the end of the 19th and into the 20th centuries, thriving art colonies had sprung up in Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Carmel, producing some of the most beautiful images of the land and the sea. Who were these artists and where did they come from? Art Librarian Lorna Corbetta will present the works of these men and women and show how depictions of the timeless shapes of the Peninsula have not changed in nearly 150 years.
