A visual artists' network for local and emerging artists
The Placer Artists League (PAL), in partnership with PlacerArts, is a group of active visual artists who meet regularly for camaraderie, artist presentations and demonstrations on a variety of media and art related topics from award winning professionals. The league's charter is to support and educate local artists, encourage emerging artists and provide opportunities for exhibition and sale of members' work.


The PAL general meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month (except July). We alternate meeting times between 10am and 7pm every other month to accommodate a diversity of artists, with varying schedules.
