The winner of the annual Rua Red Winter Open exhibition has been announced and it has been awarded to artist Mary Burke.
Mary submitted her piece of artwork to the exhibition which saw off stiff competition from artists throughout the whole island of Ireland.
Mary told InTallaght just how happy she was to be chosen as the overall winner;
“The viewing public voted for what piece they like best and that turned out to be me. The piece was a large piece called equilibrium, it was a semi abstracted based on interiors and exteriors of suburbia. I’m a suburban painter. The painting is back in my studio at the moment so we will see where it goes next”.
