In a tradition of thirty-five years, the PAAL is hosting one of its most popular exhibits: The Trees of Christmas. For this event, PAAL invites area schools, businesses and organizations to design and decorate a tree in the gallery space. While some trees are decorated in a traditional style, other trees are designed to creatively reflect the sponsoring business or organization. Some of the favorite trees from last year already slated to return this year include Houchin’s Pest Control, the Petersburg Sheriff’s Department and Curl Up or Dye Salon. Read More
