The works of art students from Craven County Schools are now on display in the Duffy Exhibition Gallery at the North Carolina History Center. This free annual K-12 Student Art Show is presented by the Craven Arts Council and Gallery.

Featured in the gallery will be an array of art from students around Eastern North Carolina covering many different artistic styles and mediums.

Craven Arts Council Executive Director Carol Tokarski said the annual exhibit is important for fostering the arts among the future generations of artists in Eastern North Carolina.

"It's always wonderful to witness children excited about seeing their art, and the art of their friends in professional galleries," Tokarski said. "Having their work hanging in their school or tacked to their parents' refrigerator is one thing, but to see it at the Bank of the Arts or the North Carolina History Center's terrific Duffy Gallery is quite another."

The gallery will remain open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays through March 27.
