The gallery was buzzing with excitement this past Friday, April 12th. Students, staff, faculty, family, friends and patrons of the art came to the Robert T. Wright Gallery at the College of Lake County's Grayslake campus. The students' hard work paid off. 15 awards were presented during the ceremony by gallery curator, Steve Jones. A big thanks goes to Robert Booker, CLC staff photographer, for capturing such a memorable evening at the gallery. Please enjoy the photos from the event and follow the excitement on the gallery Facebook page. See you there!
