Who we are

The Pleasanton Art League (PAL), a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit organization, was founded in 1969 to encourage the progress and development of the creative talents of its members. Our members include artists of all skill levels, from the beginner, to the hobby artist, to the professional artist. We also welcome art lovers and patrons.

PAL Belief Statement

watercolorThe arts are an essential element of a rich and vibrant community. The Pleasanton Art League believes that the arts are fundamental for developing individual potential. In this endeavor, the Pleasanton Art League supports facilities, education programs, and events that enable people to share ideas, display artwork, connect and dialogue with each other. The Pleasanton Art League is dedicated to making the visual arts an integral part of the fabric of life in the Tri-Valley Area and to encouraging an environment that embraces creativity and its expression.

About the PAL Board of Directors

PAL Board positions are volunteer positions. Board members find the experience rewarding and fun. Besides helping the Pleasanton Art Community through fulfilling their responsibilities, members learn first hand what is happening and have their voices heard in decisions made throughout the year. The Board meets approximately eight times per year currently on the fourth Monday of the month from 7 to 9 PM. Please contact Meghana Mitragotri if you are interested in any of the open positions.
