DULUTH, Minn. - Friday night may have been the first time some young artists saw their work hanging gallery-style.


The Great Lakes Academy of Fine Art had its third annual exhibition. The school is located in the former St. Peter's Church on W 3rd Street. 

Cameron Conlon, one the featured student artists, said they have worked hard and stayed focused. 

"It's really amazing, with everything up on the walls to just see what we're doing here 9-5," Conlon said. 

She said there were eight students and more than 200 works of art that they've been working on for years. 

"We start with figure drawing in the morning from 9 a.m. to noon. And then in the afternoon, it kind of varies for what year of student you are," Conlon explained. 

Jeffrey and Brock Larson, a father-son duo, run the Academy. Its focus is to train artists in Classical Impressionism. 

Some of the work on display Friday night was for sale and went to support the artists.

The exhibition is open from 1-5 p.m. Saturday and 12-3 p.m. Sunday.
