Central Library, Grand Parade and Hollyhill Library in Knocknaheeny are to be the venues once again for two exhibitions of the top 21 winning paintings from the 2018 and 2017 Texaco Children’s Art Competitions respectively.
Set to run simultaneously, both exhibitions will open to the public on Tuesday, 1st October and will remain open each day from Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5.30pm until they close on Thursday, 31st October. Admission is free.
