Note from Marion: “Nine of you recently participated in PAL’s October Mixed Media Exhibit. We can be very proud of that Exhibit. I am expecting PAL’s December Mixed Media Exhibit to be equally successful. Entries can be any media or actual Mixed Media pieces. This exhibit is a chance to show one or two of your pieces in a beautiful space for a month, create name recognition and perhaps even sell one. I hope to hear from you.”
Coming up in 2019: PAL’s Alviso Adobe Show. PAL’s Spring Museum on Main Show. Another Fall 2019 Plein Air Competition plus more Mixed Media Exhibits at the Robert Livermore Community Center. The 2019 Annual Member’s Show. Check here for details and entry forms as they become available.
