PAL members' artwork -- During the festival, artwork by PAL members will be on display at the nearby Key Bank. We appreciate Key Bank's on-going support of our organization.
Many thanks to Key Bank for continued support of our organization and the Summer Art Festival, and for hosting our Members' Summer Art Exhibition during the festival.

Profits from the Art Festival provide art scholarships for local students and PAL members. Our ArtFest proceeds are also shared with the Gig Harbor community and out-of-town visitors through our art shows, exhibitions and educational programs. In 2011, PAL scholarships were awarded to high school students Crysta Olsin (PHS) and to Grace Chakerian and Kelly Williams (GHHS) to help them continue their art studies.
