Welcome to the Pleasanton Art League
PAL/LAA General Meeting October 14, 2019
Meet & Greet New Members at 7:00 pm
Artists’ Show & Tell Begins at 7:30 pm
Cultural Arts Building, 4455 Black Avenue, Pleasanton.
We would like to get to know you better! This meeting will have a new twist. It will begin with a new members’ meet-and-greet starting at 7:00 pm (all are welcome), followed by our regular meeting schedule, starting at 7:30 p.m. The theme will be Artist Show-and-Tell, rather than a demo. It will be an informal general meeting that provides time to share who you are and what you do. New members are encouraged to participate! Whether it is finished or in progress, you are feeling happy about it or feeling stuck. Whether it is a tried-and-true method or a new discovery. Please bring 1 or 2 pieces.
Each member will have a couple of minutes to introduce their work, then have a chance to answer questions from the audience. This is not meant to be a critique, but other artists are always happy to help if asked! It is a fun and interesting evening with a friendly and supportive audience, so don’t be shy!

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.
