Coming soon, a new PAL website!

Christine McCall, our webmaster, has been working on converting our website into Wordpress. It will have a new look, and she hopes you like it. The advantage of moving to Wordpress is it will allow a group of people to post new information, instead of just one person. If a rock drops on Christine's head, there will still be a way to update our web site. Plus, people can take ownership of different pages. Computer-savvy artists who have a gallery page could even do their own updating (if they want to that is). The remodeled website will appear around the first of March. It will work on mobile devices too! --- Christine

Message from the PAL President

“Seeing, in the finest and broadest sense, means using your senses, your intellect, and your emotions. It means encountering your subject matter with your whole being. It means looking beyond the label of things and discovering the remarkable world around you.”      - Freeman Patterson, photographer

At the end of September 2015, you will see a new Pleasanton Art League banner on the arch in downtown Pleasanton announcing our Annual PAL Members’ Firehouse Show. One of our goals is to make Pleasanton Art League more visible in the community, and we all hope this will get people’s attention!
Speaking of the Firehouse Arts Center, I’d like to say a few words about the Nancy Thompson Memorial Wall, which many of us inadvertently refer to as the “PAL Wall”. This is the gallery space upstairs at the Firehouse Arts Center where PAL members are able to showcase their work for one month at a time. This memorial wall was set up in honor of Nancy Thompson, who was an avid volunteer for PAL and the arts. And in honor of Nancy, PAL mainly showcases the work of its members who also are active participants in the organization. Thus, 30% of the space is reserved for PAL Board members each year. In addition, one must be a member of PAL for at least one year, and one needs to have the approval from the PAL Board to show their work. Right now the space is scheduled through 2015. So, if you are interested in having your work displayed on the Nancy Thompson Memorial Wall, please be sure to make yourself known through your volunteer efforts! Volunteer opportunities are still available on the Board (co-chairs and committee personnel), the Adobe Alviso show in March, and the Museum on Main Show also coming up in March.
