Carmel Artomobilia focuses on display and appreciation over competition and although each of the automobiles is truly magnificent, this event is not just about cars; it’s about the art and automotive enthusiasts. The event embraces the essence automotive art and design by uniquely combining the artwork of local galleries and artists, with the presentation of significant automobiles and their iconic design. To that end, select local gallery owners commission a painting each year that features one of the most noteworthy cars presented against the canvas of the District. The artwork is completed during the course of the day, and auctioned off the following evening with proceeds going to a local charity.
