'P-Town Race' returns

 

Pleasanton artist Margene Rivara displays her stained glass creation, "P-Town Race," which is returning to town after her brother bought it in a competitive Sotheby's phone auction.

Rivara was commissioned decades ago to create the work of art, which depicts harness racing in Pleasanton, home to the oldest one-mile track in the country.

The stained glass graced the front window of the Pleasanton Hotel for 27 years but left town for auction in January 2009. Now, with the help of Pleasanton Cultural Arts Council, it is being returned to Pleasanton and will be reinstalled at Handles on Main, a bar and restaurant leasing the location in the historic Pleasanton Hotel.
