Our Young Archies

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

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.
