"We would like to thank every artist that has entered our initiative through our website, and urge them to keep doing so, as the rewards for winning are vast in terms of exposure as the recipients’ art is seen on the back of a Matthews bus by thousands of people a day," he said.



"We have always put the art and culture of the area to the fore in our numerous day and extended tours which promote the north east, and we see the benefits in promoting the artistic life of the region."


Louth County Arts Officer, Brian Harten, is delighted with the exposure that has given to local artists. 



“Louth County Council takes pride in the creativity of our artists, and increasing awareness of their work through such a high-profile partnership with can be a great boost to the careers of visual artists, musicians, craftspeople, and all creative professionals.”
