Palisade Art Lovers began in 1964 in the basement of the Christian Church in Palisade, Colorado by a group of Ladies who simply wanted to paint together. Eventually, they moved their meetings to the Palisade Community Center. Only a couple of original members are active in the group, but Palisade Art Lovers has grown to about 20-25 members. PALS members meet twice a month to paint together and critique each others paintings. A guest artist is invited each month to perform a demonstration using different media. The group's goal is to "Promote Art Locally". The group's major event is the Palisade Art Lovers Annual Peach Blossom Art Show in April.You can access the 2010 Gallery of Art prepared by this group by clicking on this link. The meeting schedule for the group may be found at this website.
Artwork for the 2010 show can be no larger than 40" in any direction; all media is accepted. Deadline submission is March 31, 2010 and the show starts on April 15 and goes through April 18, 2010. This link provides all necessary information for artistic submission.
Several years ago, I sold a large floral poppy painting in oils at this same show. This year, I'm preparing two florals for display, judging, and sale.
This is a picture of one of the mixed media pieces (watercolor and pastels), that I will be displaying at PALS:

Come join us in Palisade, Colorado for a lovely show in mid April while promoting our local area artists. 20% of all sales goes to PALS.
