Congratulations to Pacific Art League for hiring such an awesome professional and incredible person to lead your efforts! Oh...and he lives in the neighborhood, so he has a personal interest in your success! I have known Jon and his lovely and very talented wife, and owner of Art Works Studio in Palo Alto, Marcie Lamb for many years. You could not have picked a better person (and family) to drive your amazing organization and community efforts to the next level! So excited to see the next chapter with Jon Graves at the helm!!!

He sounds like an excellent choice. As an artist living in Palo Alto, I look forward to seeing the future success of the Pacific Art League as well as joining in the volunteer efforts. As commercial rents become too prohibitive for retail art store outlets, keeping hold of our arts community for pursuing and enjoying art of all mediums becomes even more vital. It's important not just for our enjoyment, but also for establishing the legitimacy of pursuing art of all mediums as a career for future generations.
