The East Texas Art League will kick off a special fundraising art exhibit entitled “12x12” on Friday, Nov. 20 with an invitation only reception at the East Texas Regional Arts Center, 364 N.

This exhibit is underwritten by the Milam Street Gallery in Jasper and the Ampersand Art Supply Co. of Austin, TX.
