Annual Student Show
The exhibit features LGAL studio faculty and their students that have taken workshops or classes in the Studio during the 4 previous sessions (previous Spring to current Winter).   Each student may enter one piece per instructor they have studied with.  All students who have an email address on file from registration will receive a notification by email.  The exhibit is held for the entire month of May, change date to change date.   This is a judged exhibit with ribbon awards and a reception is held.  The exhibit and reception is organized by the LGAL Studio Faculty and Class Directors.
