Modern Ar t Comes to Carmel Valley B Y M I C H A E L C H AT F I E L D T ypically, Carmel Valley is more likely to be associated with saddles and stirrups than Cezanne and Seurat, but Suzanne O'Neal is working to change that. With the opening last May of her EDGE Gallery in Carmel Valley Village, she's satisfying a long-held desire. "It's the fulfillment of a long-held dream," she says. That dream was to showcase modern art in a sleek, urbane setting. "We're edgy, contemporary and sophisticat- ed," O'Neal says. "People comment that it feels like a New York gallery." Indeed, with its grey walls and grey-washed concrete floor, the space has an almost industri- al feel, tempered with a big dollop of Carmel Valley warmth and sunshine. "There's nothing like it around here," she adds. O'Neal has owned the popular Lyonshead Gallery two doors down from EDGE for many years. That gallery's offerings lean more toward traditional, conservative pieces. "I've always loved modern ar t. In fact, this is the kind of work I did in ar t college," the owner says. Ar tists represented are all local: Johnny Apodaca, Stefani Esta, Inge Heidrick and Barbara Tod Albright. EDGE Gallery is located at 8 Del Fino Place in Carmel Valley Village and is open 11 am to 5 pm Wednesday through Sunday. Visit online at SHORTCUTS ART Suzanne O'Neal recently opened EDGE Gallery. The contemporary space showcases modern art, and represents Johnny Apodaca, Stefani Esta and others. 60 C A R M E L M A G A Z I N E • H O L I D A Y 2 0 1 6 Photo: Kelli Uldall
