Shane takes first prize in La Linea art exhibition

Well known local artist Shane Dalmedo has won first prize in the La Linea Fine Arts Exhibition in La Casa de la Cultura for her work Despierta (Wake Up).

Although Shane has entered many local art competitions and won a second prize in the past this is the first time she has entered an international art competition.

“I am very thrilled and honoured at having won,” she told the Chronicle.

Despierta is in acrylic and is a surreal work typical of Shane’s work.

Education Minister, Dr Bernard Linares, who was invited by the Concejal de Cultura, Don Alfonso Escuadra, to attend the prize giving ceremony last week commented:

“This is highly selective and prestigious artistic contest which draws entries from renowned artists from the Iberian Peninsula as a whole and it was of particular
pleasure and pride for me to present Shane with the top prize for her magnificent painting which she named ‘Despierta’".
