LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Each year, the Nightingale Gallery at Eastern Oregon University showcases the range and diversity of talent present in the high schools of eastern Oregon.
The juried “Eastern Oregon Regional High School Art Exhibition” opens with a reception from 6-8 p.m. in the gallery in Loso Hall on Friday, March 9. Awards will be presented at 6:30 that evening. The exhibition continues through March 21.
Students in grades nine through 12 are able to submit up to two works each. High schools with students scheduled to exhibit work include: La Grande, Baker City, Burns, Crane, Grant Union, Hermiston, Joseph, Ontario, Union and Vale.
“Each of these young people bring their unique vision to our annual exhibit,” said Cory Peeke, Nightingale Gallery director. “We are excited to be able to present the work of such a large selection of student artists, and I hope the public will come out and support the next generation of regional talent.”
EOU art program faculty will jury the exhibit and present a number of honors for several gifted area high school seniors. Each of these awards includes an EOU art program scholarship.
Awards will be presented in “Best of Show” for grades nine, 10 and 11. Honorable mentions will also be presented, and the La Grande Arts Commission will sponsor a cash award for an outstanding work by a La Grande High School student artist.
