The Eisemann Center is thrilled to house the exhibition in the Forrest and Virginia Green Mezzanine Gallery for the month of July! An award reception is scheduled for Friday, July 7th at 7:00 pm. 

The Plano Art Association is celebrating 50 years of enhancing visual art culture in Plano and bringing together local artists to share the excitement of creating and exhibiting art. They host monthly membership meetings to give artists a chance to network and meet other creators, share ideas, demonstrate their craft, hold workshops, and enjoy refreshments together. According to their mission statement, the organization is "dedicated to encouraging the visual arts development and education of the membership and community, and inspiring awareness of the visual arts by sharing the joy, passion and beauty within and beyond our Plano community".
