Stop him…he’s painting on the walls!!
Calm down - In this case, it’s okay. That’s because the painter is renowned Los Angeles-based artist Mark Licari and the walls are at the Monterey Museum of Art’s beautiful La Mirada location. In the inaugural work of a new program called In Process, Licari is painting directly on the Museum’s huge Dart gallery walls, creating a site-specific mural. For the next two weeks, Mark will use La Mirada as his vibrant laboratory where he will create an exhibition consisting of paintings, drawings, sculptures and his ephemeral mural that will weave together a fantastic, elaborate narrative. Keep up-to-date on Mark’s exciting installation on www.montereyart.org Friday, October 9, 6-8pm is the preview. Licari will lecture and sign exhibit catalogues on Saturday, October 10 at 11:30am. Tickets are on sale at www.monteryart.org. Read More about Stop him…he’s painting on the walls!!

Oh baloney. Actually it’s abalone….
Recently The New York Times’ Christine Muhlke reported on the Monterey Abalone Company in the paper’s Sunday magazine, celebrating the long-awaited return of this delicious delicacy to our tables. Overfished in the 1990s, commercial abalone fishing was banned in 1997. Muhlke writes about owners Trevor Fay and Art Seavey and their successful abalone farm under Monterey’s Municipal Wharf No. 2. According to the story, they “sell more than six tons a year to walk-in customers, nearby restaurants and great chefs across the country.” Read More about Oh baloney. Actually it’s abalone….

Set down that heavy load – celebrate Labor Day in Steinbeck Country – September 7

Set down that heavy load – celebrate Labor Day in Steinbeck Country
The Labor Day holiday – always the first Monday in September – turns 115 years old in 2009. Created as a day off for working citizens to celebrate the ‘strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor unions’, today it’s considered a day for relaxation, picnics and parades. And it’s also sometimes considered the symbolic end of Summer. But not in Monterey. The Labor Day weekend means warm, sunny days and balmy evenings – perfect for a swim in the ocean, tide pool exploring (eyes only; no fingers!!), biking along the coast or kayaking with the seals and otters. Don’t forget your sunscreen. So take a load off in beautiful Monterey – home of Nobel Prize winning author John Steinbeck, one of the country’s most prominent writers about labor and the human condition. Take a spin through the National Steinbeck Center in nearby Salinas – please visit www.steinbeck.org for more information.
