Tinahely girl in the mix for Texaco Art Competition

Judging of entries in this year’s 60th Texaco Children’s Art Competition has commenced.

Going for judging is a work entitled ‘Katy Perry’ by 10-year old Patricija Metra, a pupil at Tinahely National School whose depiction of singer Katy Perry is pictured being admired by marketing manager Bronagh Carron.

Winners will be announced in mid-April after which the top twenty-one prizewinning entries will be placed on exhibition at the Hugh Lane Gallery on Dublin’s Parnell Square where they will be seen alongside works by such renowned figures as Francis Bacon, William Orpen, Jack B. Yeats and Louis le Brocquy.
