Artists come out to 'Paint Pleasanton'

Weekend culminates in exhibit at Museum on Main

Artists were out in force throughout town two weeks ago for the Pleasanton Art League's fourth annual plein air competition, "Paint Pleasanton."

The event attracted many recognized artists to paint the city's historic landmarks, buildings and surrounding vineyards in one weekend, then display their works to the public.

Most of the artists arrived early Saturday morning, Sept. 25, organizers reported, set up at their desired location, and worked until sunset on their creations.

Some returned Sunday morning, then painters set up their easels in front of Museum on Main for the community to view their efforts.

The Sunday afternoon show featured cookies from Primrose Bakery. The People's Choice Award, which was won by Leta Eydelberg, was donated by Inklings Coffee & Tea.
