Our Young Archies
WHILE most children’s artwork is displayed proudly on the fridge at home, Poppy Barnes’s drawing has earned a place on the wall of the Art Gallery of NSW.
The nine-year-old was one of four budding artists to receive prizes at the 2017 Young Archie Awards yesterday. “I was really excited to be chosen, it was a big competition,” she said. “I never thought I could have my work in a gallery.”
The Young Archies is open until October 22.
