The work of Northern Ireland’s most gifted young artists and designers just gets better and better, that was the consensus of opinion amongst the crowds of people who attended the launch of CCEA’s True Colours exhibition.

CCEA’s True Colours is a vibrant and stunning showcase of artwork produced for the summer 2015 GCE & GCSE examinations and is a must-see for art lovers of all ages and features two local artists - Lois Kane from Ballycastle High School and Grace Moore from Dunluce School.

The exhibition was officially opened at The Ulster Museum by renowned local artist Paddy McCann. He commented: “It’s a real pleasure to see the level of talent being nurtured in our schools and colleges. The range of work on show is truly inspiring and I am sure will inspire those budding artists and designers visiting the exhibition.”

Justin Edwards, CCEA’s Chief Executive, said: “I am really delighted by the variety and overall quality of the pieces we have on show. The work displayed in this exhibition doesn’t look one bit out of place in the illustrious surroundings of The Ulster Museum, which now hosts the famous Rembrandt self-portrait.”
