The Kirkcudbright Young Artist Presentation Evening was held last Friday in the Tolbooth where an exhibition of all the winners’ artwork is now on display.
This can be viewed throughout June and July and then all of these winning entries will go on display in the Cochran Hall as part of this year’s Art and Crafts Trail which runs from Thursday 4th until Monday 7th August.
The Young Artist competition was judged by local artists Ross Fulton, Pauline Saul and Margaret Milligan. Trophies, certificates and prizes, which were given as vouchers redeemable at the Gem Shop in Castle Douglas, were provided by Kirkcudbright Rotary Club and were presented by Christine Wimbush to the winners in the various categories as follows:
The Overall prize and the William Hanna Clarke Trophy went to Nick Gallagher. Every student whose art work was submitted by the schools will be presented with a Kirkcudbright Rotary Club ‘Participation’ certificate in their schools over the next week.
