Pacific Art League

A passion for art and community since 1921



The human figure and face have been among of the most enduring subjects of artistic creativity since prehistoric times. Mastering their depiction has been a mainstay of artistic training, and an exemplary vehicle for expressing the human experience. The Pacific Art League gallery will present an exhibition of figures and faces in May, and welcomes entries in all media.
