The Pacific Art League is pleased to announce our monthly juried show in April, “Noir”, dedicated to the power of black and white photographic images. This show is our second annual photography show, which reflects the greater emphasis PAL is placing on the photographic arts, through increased classes and workshops, taught by masters of the craft.
“Noir”, a show of exclusively black and white images celebrates the purest and original form of the medium. With the ubiquity of images taken on smart phones, we also want to celebrate those thoughtful, well-crafted images that reject the “snap” approach to photography and show the full range and power of the lens. We encourage you to submit your most arresting black and white image, from medium format, DSLR, film, or iPhone, sharing with us your vision of the world, through the shutter.
EXHIBITION DATES April 5 – 25, 2019

From early Anatolian cave murals, to Monet's short brushstrokes, to O'Keefe's dramatic palette to Ansel Adam's Hasselblad; landscape in its majesty, beauty and solitude, has been depicted in art since the beginning of time.
This May, PAL celebrates landscape art with our jurored exhibition, "Into the Wild". We invite artists to submit pieces in any medium depicting landscape, whether representational or enthusiastically abstract.
