What's Happening

  • Important General Meeting Set for September 19 at 7 p.m.
    Oil Painting Demonstration by George Ceffalio to Follow

    The next meeting of the Park Ridge Art League will be Friday, September 19, at 7 p.m. (a half-hour earlier than our usual meeting time) at the South Park Field House. We are meeting early to allow time for an important general meeting hosted by PRAL's outgoing president, Katie Franz, who will alert members to serious challenges now confronting PRAL. Our monthly program will immediately follow the general meeting.

    At 7:30 p.m., award-winning artist George Ceffalio will give an oil painting demonstration. George's striking oil paintings are traditional still lifes in which he combines rich, vibrant colors with a masterful use of light and shade to give everyday objects a sense of elegance and even of mystery. Come to the demonstration and see how he does it!

    For further details and more PRAL news, see the September Park Ridge Art League News & Meeting Reminder.

  • PRAL now has a members' Gallery on our website. Artist members can show up to four of items along with contact information and a brief statement about their work. This is a free benefit.

    For more information about getting your work in the online gallery, see the Members' Gallery Information sheet.
