Pacific Art League

A passion for art and community since 1921


Pacific Art League is looking for volunteers of all ages with a passion for the arts who want to help us provide an environment for advancing the expression, appreciation and enjoyment of the arts at our gallery location in the heart of Palo Alto. Volunteering at PAL is a great way to meet new people and make a difference in your community.

As an added benefit, once you accumulate 60 or more volunteer hours at PAL, you are eligible to receive a one-year PAL membership as a token of our deep appreciation for your support.

I started volunteering at PAL three years ago when I moved to the Bay Area. When I moved here I didn’t know anyone, now several years later I’ve made many new friends and continue to volunteer monthly at PAL’s First Friday openings. PAL is great place to meet people in the community while getting to enjoy art.

Volunteers needed for:

  • First Friday opening receptions

  • Art & Wine events

  • Exhibition installation

  • Assist Summer Camp instructors

  • Various office and tech support needs

  • Annual Gala Committee

  • and more!

For more information or to sign up, please contact our volunteer manager, Yogita Kandpal at or call (650) 321-3891
