Art exhibit

BONHAM — A special exhibit called Serendipity is available for viewing at the Bonham Creative Arts Center throughout December. Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and the center is located at 200 West 5th Street. It will also be open in Christmas eve.

The exhibit is being presented by the Art Is Study Group and is similar to last year’s LandMARKS exhibit. Not only are finished works on display, but the studies and sketches that helped bring those paintings to life for the seven artists who created them.

For last minute shoppers, the center still has a number of one-of-a-kind handcrafted gifts to choose from.
