Pleasanton Art League exhibit opens Sept. 15

First visual arts show of the season at Harrington Gallery

Members of the Pleasanton Art League will showcase their talents at its annual fall exhibition at the Firehouse Arts Center's Harrington Gallery, which runs Sept. 15-Oct. 15. A reception and awards ceremony will be held from 1-3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 17. The Firehouse Arts Center is located at 4444 Railroad Ave. in downtown Pleasanton.

Works at this visual arts exhibit will represent a wide variety of media including watercolor, oil, pastel and photography and two- and three-dimensional pieces. All works will have been completed within the past two years and have not been displayed locally.

San Jose artist Claire Schroeven-Verbiest, exhibit judge, will select $100 merit award and ribbon winners. Schroeven-Verbiest is considered one of the finest watercolor and pastel artists in the San Francisco Bay Area and frequently serves as a juror for local art shows.

The Pleasanton Art League is a group of local artists and patrons who support the visual arts and are dedicated to integrating them into the fabric of Tri-Valley life. PAL was founded in 1969, and its membership includes artists of all skill levels, from the beginner, to the hobby artist, to the professional artist.

It also welcomes art lovers and patrons to enjoy discussions, workshops by nationally recognized artists, and venues for exhibiting and selling artwork. Visit

Harrington Gallery hours are noon-5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday; 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday; and one hour prior to Firehouse Arts Center performances and during intermission. Donations are appreciated.
