Dublin Art Competition XL

  Dear All,
Below is information on an exhibition that members should consider submitting a piece of work for consideration. The suggestion has come from Business2Arts who have been working with us on a strategy for the IPS. Sorry the notice is short. If any of you do submit can you let Mary Hunter know. This is a great opportunity for our craft. Good Luck

Help to write your artist statement is available on the Craft Council Website Enterprise Sections www.ccoi.ie/enterprise.
