Congratulations to Orla Anderson-Scott who was a finalist in the National Youth Art Award exhibition, with her work titled “Hand of fate” featuring in the four-week exhibition which wrapped up last month.
At 16 years old Orla’s work was selected from a pool of 110 artworks entered in the competition for 15 to 27-year olds. Just 47 were selected as finalists.
“My competition is steep so even getting into the finals is a massive achievement for me,” Orla said.
“Seeing the quality of my peers’ artwork is inspiring as it showed me the amazingly talented artists that I can say I am a part of. And I encourage every young artist out there to take the chance and enter a competition like this one.”
Orla’s work also sold during the exhibition.
