The 2nd Annual Georg Schmerholz Jade Carving Exhibition

Hosted by:
Presented by:

The Monterey Bay Jade Festival is proud to continue our annual Jade Carving Exhibition named after master sculptor and jade artist Georg Schmerholz.

This supportive exhibition is open to jade carvers of all skill levels ranging from those establishing themselves in the jade carving community to those with decades of experience in jade artistry. The exhibition is a safe, supportive effort for every artist to exhibit their work, receive valuable feedback from their peers, and to receive validation for their works by participating in one of the world’s few annual international jade carving exhibitions.

In 2023 the MBJF raised $16,500 to help support the children of the Big Sur Coast.

We gift net proceeds to the following schools that serve the children of Palo Colorado, Big Sur Valley and the South Coast of Big Sur for their programs of greatest need.
