The Martin Place Gallery in McKinney is hosting "The Art of Giving" Small Works Exhibition 2015 from Friday, Dec. 4 through Monday, Jan. 4, 2016.

Join us in celebrating the Christmas season with a juried art exhibition featuring the works of local artists which are perfectly suited for this year's gift giving. Our gallery will be filled with the Christmas Spirit and what better way to celebrate the Art of Giving than with a hand painted or hand crafted piece of art! The artwork selected for this show will be sized just right for that special person on your list.

They will be hosting a two-day opening reception on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 4-5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. The event is open to participating artists and the public.

Come join the fun at our Christmas party and exhibition featuring the small works of our talented local artists with cash prizes awarded to the winners ($150 for first place, $100 for second and $50 for third).

The Martin Place is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. They are located at 1799 N. Graves St. in McKinney. For more information, call 972-548-7575, email shows@themartinplace.com or visit online at themartinplace.com.
