Laurel Arts will display items from its Permanent Collection beginning on May 10th through June 10th.
The show will highlight some of the gems of our collection, many of which are in need of restoration. We hope to shine a spotlight on some of these important works and give viewers the opportunity to help restore them.
The opening reception for this show is Friday, May 20th from 6 - 8 PM and is free and open to the public. Please join us!
