A prize-winning artwork from last year’s 66th Texaco Children’s Art Competition called ‘Inchydoney Beach’ by 18-year old Róisín Long from Sandford Park School, Ranelagh, will go on exhibition at the 22nd International High School Arts Festival in Tokyo this year.
Sponsored by the International Foundation for Arts and Culture, the International High School Arts Festival is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious exhibitions to take place in Tokyo annually.
Showcasing the world’s best young artistic talent, it will feature some 500 artworks by students from around the world – with Long’s work being one of four Irish paintings to be displayed.
Other 2020 Texaco winning artworks displayed will be ‘Kevin In The Pink’ by Casey Etherton (17), from Coláiste na Sceilge, Cahersiveen; ‘Everything But The Kitchen Sink’ by Katie Cumiskey (16) from Our Lady’s Secondary School, Castleblayney, and a self-portrait by P.J. Doherty (15), a pupil at St. Eunan’s College, Letterkenny.
