For the tenth year in a row, The La Grande Arts Commission will sponsor a cash award for an outstanding work by a La Grande student artist. Joining the La Grande Arts Commission in presenting special awards are three regional art centers, Union County’s Art Center East, Baker City’s Crossroads Carnegie Art Center and Pendleton Center for the Arts. PCA’s award will be made in conjunction with Pendleton Art and Frame, and the Blue Mountain Community College Foundation.
“The Nightingale Gallery is pleased to be able to encourage the creative endeavors of our region’s youth,” said Cory Peeke, Nightingale Gallery Director. “We hope to support and inspire these students to continue their artistic pursuits as well recognize the hard work and dedication of their teachers who conscientiously and often with limited resources help cultivate such promising young artists.”
