Check out 'Paint Pleasanton 2020'

Exhibit is on website through end of October

Pleasanton Art League's first online exhibit, "Paint Pleasanton 2020," is on its website, with 51 artworks created by 23 artists.

"It was PAL's first foray into an online event and I am happy with the result," PAL spokeswoman Lorraine Wells said.

For the last two years, the "Paint Pleasanton" events have drawn artists to paint and photograph its sites during a long weekend, culminating in an exhibit on the lawn in front of Museum on Main where the artworks were judged and also for sale.

This year the rules were tweaked to allow works done in the past and in the Pleasanton area to be sent in digitally. There was no entry fee and no judging, and each artist was limited to three entries.

"I added the 'Old' aspect to the exhibit because most artists are prohibited from showing art that was created/shown more than two years ago," Wells explained. "That leaves most of us with art work collecting dust that we cannot show. It was good to get some of it out there."

"PAL's next scheduled event would be the annual member show at the Firehouse," Wells said. "We had hoped we would be able to hang that show but we are now planning on it being online."

Details are still being worked out, she added.
