SANDISFIELD, Mass. — The Sandisfield Arts Center announced the Daniel Manacher Prize for Young Artists applications are available and those interested need to apply by June 15.
Three artists will be selected as finalists and each will receive $350 in support of their art practice, as well as a group show of their work at the Sandisfield Arts Center on Aug. 13, 2022.
The prize was created by Adam Manacher and Carol Birnbaum, the parents of Daniel Manacher, in memory of their son and his passion for art.
"Daniel worked on different surfaces, always hand-drawn," said his father, Adam Manacher. "He loved interacting with people in their love for art. We hope, with the Daniel Manacher Prize for Young Artists, to inspire other young artists and to assist them as they reach for their dreams."
Eligible artists are those 17-26 years of age living or attending school in Berkshire County. There is no fee associated with the application and all entrants will be judged based solely on the merit of the work presented.
This year, applications will be accepted from those working in painting, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, digital paintings, and digital drawings. The entry deadline is June 15. The applications will be reviewed by a selection committee and artists will be notified no later than July 15.
