Gallery opening showcases Shawnee 5-year-old

June 3, 2010

Five year-old Marissa Hitt has achieved more artistic success in her short life than many ever will.

Marissa's Chinese inspired paintings will be on display at Hook Gallery opening, 4120 Pennsylvania #12, Kansas City, Mo, starting June 12.

"We've been a little shocked from the response that's she's got," Dennis Hitt, Marissa's father said. "She loves it and is quite the little artist."

Marissa, who was adopted from China, has asked that a percentage of the money earned from the art gallery go to the orphanage where she stayed in China.

Opening night will run from 4 to 8 p.m.
