The A.D. Gallery invites you to celebrate the 39th annual juried exhibition for regional high school students. This show is designed to offer a professionally organized gallery exhibition to artistically accomplished high school students. The exhibition celebrates and rewards student talent and recognizes art teachers for their encouragement and effective teaching skills.
