Gittings Celebrates Selfless Women to Remember

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a new exhibit by Gittings Photography might just be priceless.

In celebration of its 90th anniversary, the prestigious portrait studio is amplifying its dedication to the community by honoring extraordinary women throughout March for Women’s History Month.

Selfless Women to Remember: An Exhibition of Portraits by Gittings features and uplifts women of yesterday, today, and tomorrow who have positively impacted North Texas and beyond.
