Invitation to IWA Exhibition in Dublin

Last year I entered the IWA (Irish Wheelchair Association) 50th Anniversary Art and Craft Competition with my sculpture Naked Truth. To my great delight it won first prize in the 'craft' category (3D works).
The following was taken from the Summer edition of Spokeout magazine (see page 52) 
"In autumn 2010 IWA invited artists to submit entries for the 50th Anniversary Art and Craft Competition. The aim of the competition was to encourage artists with physical and sensory disabilities to showcase their creative talent. The competition received huge interest and many pieces of an extremely high standard were entered into the four regional heats, which took place in late 2010. Pieces from three categories were selected by representatives from Colleges of Art nationally. All entries selected at regional level went through to a national final which took place in Dublin, and was judged by Declan McGonagle of NCAD."
