Artists 'Paint the Town' in festive show of talent in downtown Pleasanton

Photos by Chuck Deckert offer look at success of Museum On Main-sponsored event

Artists took over Pleasanton's downtown this weekend for the second annual Paint the Town, sponsored by the Museum on Main, as these photos by Chuck Deckert show.

"The event was a great success," said Councilman Jerry Thorne on Facebook after he purchased a painting of the Veterans Memorial Building on Main Street. "Artists, judges, volunteers and patrons all had a wonderful day."

Thorne said that after he purchased the Vets' Hall painting, he learned that his wife Sandi had bought a painting of the Rose Hotel, making it a good day for the artists and the Thornes' collection of fine local paintings.

Come to the auction and buy a piece of Pleasanton for your home. You will be supporting the Museum on Main at the same time. It is a win-win situation!

This is a great day long community event. Come on down to the museum and consider purchasing a piece of Pleasanton or just enjoy the free reception beginning at 4:00PM. There will be door prize drawings for 2 wine stroll tickets, a gift certificate from Eddie Papas American Hangout and 2 tickets to the Museum on Mains Barrooms, Brothels and Bandits fundraiser in August.

Did you just say "Brothels and Bandits"?

You must have friends in low places.
