The Peter Lawrence Gallery in Gaylordsville will hold a holiday party and artist's reception Dec. 15 from 3 to 9 p.m.

The event, which will run through Jan. 6, will showcase the work of 32 local artists who will present original drawings and paintings, photography, printmaking, sculpture, jewelry, glass art, handmade books, home design, ornaments, greeting cards, gift bags, hand bags, toys and fiber arts.

The gallery, which is owned and operated by artists and longtime Connecticut residents, takes 25 percent commission from artists, thus 75 percent of sales go to the artists.

The gallery at 703 Kent Road (Route 7) is open Fridays through Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.
