Marjorie Evans Galler y Showcases Local Ar tists B Y M I C H A E L C H AT F I E L D M any of us have enjoyed musical or dance performances at the Sunset Center, that jewel of a theater in Carmel. But it's important to note that a lot more goes on in those build- ings on San Carlos. The subtitle of the facility is, after all, "The Monterey Peninsula's Premier Arts Facility." And that means all the arts. Many concertgoers who park in the adjacent lot on 8th Avenue enter the facility and walk through an 800-square-foot, art-filled corridor. That's the Marjorie Evans Gallery, and since 1972 it has showcased the work of scores of local artists on its walls. "What's unique," says Christine Sandin, Sunset Center executive director, "is that there is no charge to the artists to display their work here." Neither does the gallery charge a com- mission for any work sold during an exhibit. Carmel Cultural Commission member Robert Evans offered funds from his mother's estate to construct the gallery; it is named in her honor. Originally, the buildings that currently house Sunset Center were the Sunset School, and the hallway where the gallery is sited was an open corridor in that facility. Exhibits change monthly, and the gallery is open Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm. There is no charge for admission.
