Peninsula Art League Open Juried Show


Peninsula Art League’s 14th annual Open Juried Show opens September 9th at the Harbor History Museum on Gig Harbor’s historic working waterfront. The show runs through October 30th and will showcase paintings and sculptures by 52 fine artists from as far away as Illinois and New York.

Seattle painter Teresa Saia served as juror for the show. She will also teach a workshop in Gig Harbor September 23rd, 24th and 25th. The workshop is open to pastel, oil and acrylic painters and will focus on creating dramatic, timeless landscapes.

Access to the show is included in museum admission during regular business hours. Admission is free on October 1st and PAL docents will give free guided tours of the exhibit from 1-5pm that day. 

“We know that people like to meet artists and to talk about art,” PAL member Myrna Binion said.  “Our docents will talk about what goes into making a good painting or other artwork and we will have information about why certain artworks were selected by our juror to receive awards.”

Refreshments will be available during the guided tours. Visitors to the show are encouraged to vote for their favorite artwork to receive the People’s Choice Award. Voting continues through noon on October 30th and the winner will be announced at 4:30pm that day. All artworks in the show are for sale.
