Following last year’s success, 44AD artspace will again be awarding the eighthwonder art prize, voted in-house by the visiting public. Prizes will include a ONE WEEK SOLO EXHIBITION at 44AD’s new premises and FREEDOM OF THE CITY (in artform)!!
‘For emerging artists an experience like this is to be cherished. The eighthwonder prize provided me with the support and opportunity to successfully show and sell my work in a unique space to a larger audience – at a time when this option simply wasn’t available for me.’

Daniel Rushforth was awarded the 2013 eighthwonder art prize. Following a very successful solo show last December, Daniel will be exhibiting alongside Jo Seitfudem at 44AD artspace from 6 – 12 Oct 2014.
