The International Guild of Realism: 7th Annual Juried Exhibition
at Jones & Terwilliger Galleries in Carmel, California

September 7th - September 30th, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 15th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm

The International Guild of Realism has secured a top-ranking art gallery in Carmel, California to host our
7th Annual Juried Exhibition, which will be held from September 7 through September 30, 2012.

Our annual international exhibition will be held at the prestigious Jones & Terwilliger Galleries in the heart of the Carmel art district. The gallery is centrally located among many quality art galleries, luxury shops and fine dining, attracting plenty of affluent visitors during the peak summer season. We couldn't have asked for a better time or location in this important US art market. Carmel and the Monterey area is one of the most beautiful coastal areas of the United Sates. There are several sights to see such as the scenic 17 mile drive with views of the pacific ocean, Pebble Beach Golf Course, the beautiful village of Carmel by the Sea with numerous high end art galleries and so much more. Also, Carmel is about two hours away from San Francisco. If you are fortunate enough to be juried into this prestigious exhibition then we strongly recommend that you make the trip to the opening weekend festivities.
