SANDISFIELD, Mass. — The Sandisfield Arts Center announced the 2nd annual Daniel Manacher Prize for Young Artists with an extended entry deadline on July 8.
Three winners will receive $350 in support of their art practice, as well as a group show of their work at the Sandisfield Arts Center on August 19, 2023.
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. Past winners are not eligible to apply.
This year, applications will be accepted from those working in painting, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, digital paintings, and digital drawings. The entry deadline is July 8. The applications will be reviewed by a juror and artists will be notified no later than July 17, 2023.
