October’s General Meeting
Artists’ Show and Tell
October 14th 7:00 pm
Cultural Arts Building, 4455 Black Avenue, Pleasanton.
This is a chance to show other members your work and to get to know each other better in an informal meeting that provides time to share who you are and what you do.
New members are encouraged to come! There will be a Meet & Greet for you starting at 7:00 pm. Show and Tell will start at 7:30 pm.
Bring your work – whether finished or in progress, feeling happy or stuck, or using tried-and-true methods or new discoveries. Bring 1 or 2 pieces. Each participant will have a couple of minutes to introduce their work followed by a chance to answer audience questions. This is not meant to be a critique, but other artists are always happy to help if asked! It will be a fun and interesting evening with a friendly and supportive audience, so don’t be shy! Look for more information in the October Portfolio.
PAL is Searching for its Next Treasurer

The PAL Logo Receives an Update
PAL has updated its palette-and-brush logo. Graphic designer and PAL Publicity Chair, Lorraine Wells, created a new logo to feel fresh and contemporary while paying homage to the original palette design so meaningful to all PAL members. The new logo is a reflection of our efforts to stay relevant and visible in a fast-moving community. The brown palette logo, providing PAL’s identity for many years, was created by Robin Sigmann, who also designed the original PAL website.
