Arklow Visual Arts recently announced the winners of the Nautical-themed art competition which has been exhibited for the month of June in Arklow Library.

The exhibition was borne out of an open call competition seeking to celebrate Arklow’s maritime history and raise funds for RNLI Arklow’s lifeboat station.

The winner in the under 18’s category was Charlie Lappin with the lino print titled ‘Stormy Voyage’, and the winner in the over 18’s category was Emanuela Carvisigla with the painting titled ‘Refreshing at the Pier’.

Arklow Visual Arts paid particular thanks to Adrian O’Brien Photography, who donated prizes for the winners. Arklow Tidy Towns and Arklow Library were also instrumental in ensuring the success of the community exhibition.

Again in collaboration with Arklow Library, AVA is excited to provide exhibition space for the month of July with a variety of weeklong exhibitions which will run throughout July with combined exhibits by the two AVA winners and the online competition entries by artists who were unable to display their work during June.
