If you want to view more fine art this season, check out the Paulding Fine Arts Center! Located in downtown Dallas, this popular art gallery has historical roots from its humble beginnings as a courthouse building in the late 1800s.

The old courtroom is now an art gallery, and court offices are studios for professional artists who live and work in the area, selling their beautiful pieces.
