Juried Art League exhibit at Firehouse Arts Center through tomorrow

Features new works by approximately 75 member artists

Pleasanton Art League's sixth annual Members' Juried Exhibition is currently at the Firehouse Arts Center, running through tomorrow.

It has been held each fall since the opening of the center in 2010.

This annual exhibition, hosted by Harrington Gallery director Julie Finegan, is professionally installed in the restored Old Engine Bay and the adjacent gallery areas within the Firehouse Arts Center.

The show features new works by approximately 75 member artists, and many of the works are available for purchase. All types of media are represented, including watercolor, acrylic, printmaking, photography, oils, 3-D and collage.

Dan Petersen, a nationally recognized artist, teacher, arts adjudicator and author, was the juror. Awards were presented at an Artists' Reception and Awards Ceremony on Tuesday.

After receiving a Master of Arts degree from San Jose State University, Petersen enjoyed a 40-year career teaching watercolor and drawing at the college level. He has had more than 50 one-man shows, and his work is in university collections and hundreds of private collections.

Gallery hours are 12-5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday; 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday; and one hour before most performances and during intermissions. Admission for this exhibit is free, with donations gratefully accepted.
