ART FROM ODDS & ENDS
£100 PRIZE FOR THREE YOUNG ARTISTS
Three talented youngsters from the Sedgemoor area have each won £100 in The Arts Society Sedgemoor (TASS)’s competition for local young artists.
The Bridgwater Mayor, Lee Redman, presented the prizes to the winners on Saturday 4 December.
First in the under-fourteen category was Harrison Manley, aged 12, with a model crocodile; the 15-18 section was won by 16-year-old Meg Dallimore’s inspiring black and white hands; while Aleah Dodson (19) took the 19-21 award with a musical creation.
“The challenge, to create a work of art using odds and ends, produced some clever and original pieces,” said Jo Boyd, Young Arts Chairman. “The Arts Society aims to encourage an interest in the arts at any age, and we were delighted to be able to invite local young people to take part in our competition.”
