** Letters Home **
November 4
8 pm
Sunset Center San Carlos St. on 9th Ave.
Letters Home, produced by Griffin Theatre Company, puts the current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq front and center by bringing to life actual letters written by soldiers serving in the Middle East. The production is inspired by the New York Times op-ed article "The Things They Wrote," and the subsequent HBO documentary Last Letters Home. Without politicizing, the play gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier experience during wartime. "Extraordinary and deeply moving, the emotional impact of this 90-minute journey is profound." - Chicago Sun Times

** Carmel Art Walk **
November 11
5-8 pm
Downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea has more than 80 galleries in a one-square-mile area. A great way to visit the village’s 21 artist-owned galleries and the artists who work in them is to embark on the Carmel Art Walk. Occurring the second Saturday of the month from 5:00–8:00pm, the self-guided walking tours allow art enthusiasts of all interests to take in a sampling of Carmel’s locally created artworks.

Created by Carmel artist Joaquin Turner, the Carmel Art Walk debuted in 2016. Turner says the idea came to him to let people know that Carmel was still a colony of local artists and to bring the area’s artists together. “Basically, I looked for all of the local artist-owned galleries,” he says. “All the galleries where you can go in and meet the artist whose work is on the wall.”

The Carmel Art Walk is a unique event that causes galleries to put up new work in anticipation of visitors. Also, most of the establishments serve refreshments or raffle off miniature paintings or have live music. “I’ve had a harp player, an accordion player, and a guitar player,” Turner says. See website for more information.
