Green Chalk Contemporary, founded in 2013, strives to create a community around the celebration of the creative act and bring a select group of uniquely accomplished artists to an appreciative audience. We believe that Green Chalk Contemporary advances an uncommon opportunity for artists, curators and the public to discover, to learn, and to acquire contemporary artwork.
The Monterey Peninsula is recognized throughout the world as a place where critical reflections of art, culture and nature are celebrated in music, writing, and the visual arts. Green Chalk Contemporary explores these aesthetic principles to contribute to the community that searches for and celebrates the most challenging aspects of the human condition.
Green Chalk works closely with Celadon Arts, a non-profit group which pairs business with the arts. In this tradition, Celadon Arts has brought the Monterey Peninsula: “The New Domestics, Finding Beauty in the Mundane”; “‘You’d Be Prettier If You Smiled’–Identity, Gender and Dissonance”; “Now What? Art and Politics in 2017”; “Awakening”, “Transcendental Vision–Japanese Culture and Contemporary Art”; and “Joseph Campbell: The Artist’s Way”. Celadon Arts has worked with The Monterey Museum of Art, The Monterey Weekly Press Cub, The Japanese American Citizens League, The Joseph Campbell Foundation, Opus Archives, Sand City, and The Carl Cherry Center for the Arts.
