Portrait of a Local

Westival Gallery, Castlebar Street
1pm-3pm 28th October


Based on the Sky Arts model, Portrait Artist of the Year, this fun adaption for Westival searches for the best portrait artist in a relaxed setting. Artists have limited time to complete their portraits of a well-known local. The public is invited for free to view the process from start to finish, gaining insight into the artistic process. Artist places are limited to 10 and artists are required to bring their own materials and canvas. Easels and stools will be provided. Viewers are welcome to drop in any time but artists should arrive at least 15 minutes early to set up. 

Judged by Vincent O'Donoghue, Hettie Lawlor.

Sitter Joanne Keegan.

Artist Entry Fee €10
