Message from the PAL President, Lisa Rigge

My friend Anne once confessed she didn’t exactly know when she crossed the threshold of considering herself an artist. There was no major art show, no specific sale, and no publication of her work. Instead, she experienced an internal acceptance of who she was and belief and integrity in the work she produced.

The Pleasanton Art League includes artists at all levels of the spectrum. Some members are brand new to the art world, others exhibit worldwide. We welcome all who want to join a dynamic art league at whatever stage they are in their life and art. We strive to give our artists new ways to develop their art, show their work, and be active in the arts community around us. I believe we need to do away with labels such as “amateur” or  “professional” artists because the most important label is the one we give ourselves, like my friend Anne did. Or, as artist M.C. Richards said, “All the arts we practice are apprenticeships. The big art is our life.”.

As the end of the year looms before us, it’s time for you to consider how you can give back some of what PAL has given you this year. We’d like co-chairs for our committees, and we need volunteers at our upcoming events and shows. I would ask that all of you commit to partake in at least one event next year - whether that be 2 hours or 20 hours. You can learn new skills and get to know other artists by serving as a Co-Chair, or possibly serving as a Chairperson on our Board. Now is the time to dedicate a portion of your time to PAL.   Truly, one does not see the dedicated hours of work that goes into the running and maintaining of our organization by the dedicated persons who do it. We all know that many hands make less work and more fun, so please extend your hand! You can contact me, or any of the Committee Chairs listed on the last page. Thank-you!

--- Lisa Rigge
