The Pacific Art League mission is to advance the expression, appreciation and enjoyment of the arts.

Dedicated to sustaining the great tradition of promoting art, training emerging artists and enriching lives in the San Francisco Peninsula since 1921, the Pacific Art League currently enrolls over 2,100 students of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels in classes taught by a faculty of 60 experienced artists at its downtown Palo Alto location. The gallery showcases monthly juried exhibits as well as other selected work by local artists.
The League also offers summer art camps for youth and regular special events for art lovers as part of the growing vibrant art scene in the area.

We are pleased to announce a new show for PAL, the inaugural first annual Works on Paper Exhibition. This exciting new exhibition encompasses drawing, fine prints, photography, and collage, allowing artists proficient in many media to enter their work for this juried exhibition. We are also excited to announce that this show will be hosted in our gallery for all of February and March.
