       Oh what a night! I am still reeling with all the excitement of the 95th Anniversary Celebration. A sincere and heartfelt thank you to so many people! First and foremost, our artists. What an incredible show of talent! I am so lucky to come to work every day and be surrounded by these beautiful pieces. Thank you for the outpouring of support for your Pacific Art League.

       To our instructors-looking at your students’ work, it is easy to see how incredible you are as teachers, and looking at your work, I am in awe of your gifts as artists.  We are so very lucky to have you. -You are the heart of PAL.

       To our students, thank you for coming to Pacific Art League, week after week, perfecting your craft and growing with us.

       To our individual and Corporate Sponsors, especially General Pencil Company, thank you for your encouragement and support of our artists. Our kids’ Wall was such a huge success, thanks to General Pencil Company, that we will have one from now on in our anniversary exhibitions.

       To the PAL staff, board and volunteers, thank you for all the long hours, the phone calls, the creative ideas and energy you bring to this wonderful place every day.

       To our members, thank you for creating this amazing community and for letting me be a part of it.

       And to all of our attendees, well-wishers, family and friends-thank you for your time, love and support.
