Before you settle in for the Christmas Parade downtown, swing by the Arts Council of Kern's Access Center Gallery for a new show on display.

Longtime local artist Patti Doolittle will display her work in the new show "Brushstrokes With Passion."

Thursday's reception will also highlight colored pencil pieces from Jeanette Schumacher.

The free reception runs from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the gallery, 1330 Truxtun Ave. Light refreshments will be served.
