The Kirkcudbright Rotary Club ‘Young Artist’ Presentation Evening, together with the Kirkcudbright Rotary Club ‘Young Photographer’ Presentation Evening, was held on Friday 24th May at Kirkcudbright Academy. The theme this year was ‘Colour in my World’. An exhibition of all of the winners’ art work and photography is now on display to the general public in the Tolbooth in Kirkcudbright. This can be viewed throughout June and July and then all of these winning entries will go on display in the Cochran Hall in Kirkcudbright as part of this year’s Art and Crafts Trail which runs from Friday 2nd until Monday 5th August.
The Young Artist competition was judged by local artists 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.
