A number of local artists that are Not part of Pleasanton Art League or other LARGE organizations (and don't want to be) want to know how we can be a part of the Art Gallery. How can the Local artist Community, show work or have exhibits at the Community Fire House Art Center?? It's hard to get a Direct answer from anyone ~

The city of Pleasanton has been making purchases of art for a number of years. A fellow friend and artist Tricia Leonard had a piece purchased by the city last year. Will there be a permanent collection of purchased art, by the city, be on display at the FireHouse Art Center?

LOCAL Artist,

You probably haven't gotten a direct answer because there is no answer, or at least not yet. Keep pushing for an answer. Public access art, anyone?
