I am happy and excited to be in Hanson Gallery Carmel, http://www.hansongallerycarmel.com . They have a beautiful location in the Carmel Plaza on the lower or courtyard level.
I paint there on site in the gallery several days a week when I am in California. You are invited to come chat anytime. There is a to die for coffee shop in the plaza that makes the best nonfat mochas I have ever tasted.
Tomorrow, December 5th, they are going to have the annual Christmas tree lighting in the little park right across from the plaza at 4:30 pm. Afterwards there will be a party in the plaza. Just bring a can of food for the local food drive.
