We enjoyed a relaxing and informative visit. Many pictures and paintings but local artists. The room detailing different art types was quite informative. Seating in each gallery would be a great bonus.

There is some interesting East Texas History here and some things people may not know about the area. They also exhibit local children's art and encourage the Art's for our local youth.

The festival of trees at Christmas time is really cool and you will see a BIG variety of decorations and trees. The kids love art camp during the summer and they get to do a lot of projects.
