Gingko Leaf Gallery will close soon. But Christmas shopping is going strong!
After the holidays the gallery will begin the long process of closing. Currently many artists are offering work for discounts ranging from 20-50% through December. January will be the month of closing and I will have fixtures and some art of my own at a discount as well. We will lock the doors Jan. 15.
We’ve had a two and a half year run in Marshall that was successful on many levels. However, I am transitioning to produce events, consulting work, and lessons from my studio through Gingko Art Productions. We may not have a store front, but there will always be art in my life.
The gallery is located at 212 N. Washington Ave. in Marshall, TX.
So, come see Wonderland of Lights in Marshall TX, shop and dine in this historic town, ice skating, and numerous other fun activities….then come see Gingko Leaf Gallery where Art is for the Imagination!

| Recipe of the Month
Christmas Morning Cake
‘Tis the Season for parties and celebrations with friends and family — a time for treasured traditions and extra special goodies to eat. This holiday recipe has been so popular over the years that I thought I’d share it with you once again — a new tradition!
My mother always served a wonderful Christmas Morning Cake for brunch during the holidays. It was a much anticipated part of every Christmas — and often requested as a birthday treat.
This cake has to sit for a couple of days to absorb all the citrus-y goodness poured over the top — presenting a serious temptation to sneak a nibble when nobody else is around…
