“The Nightingale Gallery is pleased to be able to exhibit and support the creative endeavors of our region’s youth,” said Cory Peeke, Nightingale Gallery director. “We hope to encourage these students to continue their creative pursuits, as well as pay tribute to their teachers who work diligently and with limited resources to produce artists of great promise.”
