Come have a look: Sharon Corr to pose for portrait artists this weekend

Singer Sharon Corr is one of three stars who will be forced to sit still for four hours as they pose for portrait artists this weekend.

The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon and actor Colm Meaney will also be painted by for the Irish heat of Sky Arts’ Portrait Artist of the Year.

And if you want to see them, all are welcome to attend the event in the Great Hall in The Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin on Sunday June 15.

Artists will compete to make the final of the show where they will be up against the winners from the English, Scottish and Welsh heats in a bid to become Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2014.

And Neil Hannon said: “I’m delighted to be asked to take part in the new series of Sky Arts: Portrait Artist of the Year 2014.

“I remember watching the trailers for the first series and thinking, oh no, they’re X Factoring portraiture now. But when I gave it a watch I was relieved to find it to be a thoughtful, genuine and often fascinating programme.

“I never thought they’d ask me to do it, and I can’t wait to sit perfectly still in an awkward position for four hours!”
