Art Competition For Local Artists
4th July 2005
LS Lowry painted scenes of Wick in the 1930's, now the Highland Council would like local artists to do the same in 2005, using the famous artist's paintings as inspiration.
The work can be in any medium, but must include both people and places, using the setting of Lower Puleneytown, Wick. There are three categories; Primary Children, Secondary Children and Adult. Prizes will be awarded in all categories.
Competition entries should be handed in to the St Fergus Gallery, Wick Library by 17.30pm on the 15th August 2005, with name and contact details clearly written on the back.
