    I recently was given my grandmother’s paintings. She spent her married life as an Irving resident. She also painted and spent, from what I am told, many days showing her art at exhibits, trade shows or craft fairs at the art center at Jaycee Park. I am emailing to find out if there is any events scheduled to exhibit older Irving residents art work. If there are any photos that need to be taken or even submitted for entry, I would be more than happy to do so.
