Pleasanton Art League’s
Alviso Adobe Art Show 2019
I would like to invite you to enter the Pleasanton Art League (PAL) annual art show and sale at the Alviso Adobe Community Park in Pleasanton, Ca.
This is an Open show, in which all categories of hung artwork and photographs will be judged together. There may be up to 100 pieces of art to be judged for monetary prizes. You will be joining artists from the local Tri-Valley and surrounding communities.
The comfortably restored milking building will serve as the art galley.
“Pleasanton’s Alviso Adobe Community Park is a unique site that tells the story of California from its earliest human history. This fully restored interpretative park reveals the history of the Amador Valley, offering a rare glimpse of times past – from its Native American beginnings to the days of Spanish Ranchos managing herds of cattle on the original 12,000 acre Rancho Santa Rita, through a period in the early to mid-20th century when it was a popular dairy and finally its present as a community park.”
The Show itself will be Mar 1, 2, 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
I hope you will be able to join us and enjoy this charming and rustic getaway in the Pleasanton hillside.
