PAL Provides Original Art to Hang in Your Business!

The Pleasanton Art League is pleased to offer local businesses the opportunity to hang original fine artwork, from local artists, in their place of business. When you become a member of the Pleasanton Art League Public Art Circuit, participating artists will:

  • Deliver and hang their artwork in your place of business.
  • Label each piece of artwork with name, title, medium, price, and contact information.
  • Replace any sold artwork with comparable quality piece within five days.
  • Rotate artwork from one participating business to another every quarter.
  • Not hold participating business responsible for loss, damage, or theft of artwork.

PAL Artists – Join the Circuit!

As a member of PAL, you are eligible to participate in PAL’s Art Circuit and display your artwork in local businesses. The Pal Art Circuit is a wonderful opportunity for artists, businesses, and the public to come together and appreciate the artwork of the Pleasanton Art League members.

Currently there are seven teams in the PAL Art Circuit (four teams of painters and two teams of photographers).  A team captain runs each team. Team captains maintain contact with team members, coordinate activities on change-out day, and communicate with the Art Circuit Chairperson. Circuit Chairperson John Trimingham directs the PAL Art Circuit.

Artwork is hung for three months at each location. Change-out days are on the third Friday of January, April, July, and October. Each team moves its work from its current location to its new location. The Team Captain will determine how many pieces each artist on the team is allowed to hang. Each location has a specific number of pieces that can be hung and could range from six to sixteen.

Occasionally we have a need to add both painters and photographers to the circuit. Most teams have four artists, and we’d like each team to have five.

If you are interested in joining the PAL Circuit or know of any businesses that would like our artwork exhibited in their location, please contact John Trimingham at or call at 510-877-8154.
