eighthwonder 2016 art prize
Following previous year’s successes, 44AD artspace will again be awarding the eighthwonder art prize, which is voted for by the visiting public.
Prizes will include a one week solo show at 44AD artspace and Freedom of the City (in art-form)!!
‘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 eighthwonder 2013
‘My submission was lucky enough to be voted the public’s favourite in 2014 so winning me ‘the artistic freedom of the city’ and a solo exhibition in the Basement Gallery. This gave me an opportunity to show a wider range of my work and helped gain me commissions.’
