Welcome to the Pleasanton Art League!
PAL & LAA General Meeting
Monday, March 13, 2017. 7:30 pm
Cultural Arts Building, 4455 Black Ave., Pleasanton
Guest Artist: Caryne Mount, Textile Artist
Caryne Mount is a textile artist and artist in couture wearable art. She is also a designer and builder of tutu, for Livermore Valley Dance Theatre. Her love of textiles-particularly those of Japan have in influenced her work in her art to wear, from shape and design, to layers of detail that is possible.
Self-taught in many textile mediums, Caryne’s first love is sewing and beading. She has won many awards for her work both nationally and internationally and has been featured in FiberArts Design Book 6. She has been the recipient of two individual artist grants.
Caryne will present a slide show of past works, show some of her present work in both tutu/costuming, and art to wear, and discuss how she got started on her journey on the road to becoming a fashion designer. She will demonstrate a few fun textile surface design techniques that you will be able to try out and take home!
You can see Caryne’s beautiful handiwork at the LAA Gallery where she is Director. She is also the current LAA President.
Join in the fun! Bring a friend along!

PAL President’s Message:
The PAL Members’ Show scheduled for the Harrington Gallery at the Firehouse Art Center has been moved to the following dates: July 27 to September 2, 2017. We are looking for theme ideas as soon as possible to be ready to advertising the show in early spring.
Drop me your idea(s) for a show theme that you think might work for the show. Maybe something to do with summer or something about the weather we have in Pleasanton in the summer, like sizzling.
Drop me an email with your theme ideas for the PAL Members Show at email@example.com; put Members’ Show Theme in the header.
We will be looking forward to your creative ideas and we will put together a ballot in a month to narrow the field.
We have received a few emails with ideas and/or subjects for workshops, but we still need more of your ideas for Workshops! What artist or what art medium would you like to see offered in September 2017? Drop us an email with your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com please, put workshops in the header.
