The Sandisfield Arts Center is pleased to announce the 2nd annual Daniel Manacher Prize for Young Artists.

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 with an opening reception on August 19, 2023 – the show runs through September 17.

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.”

About Daniel Manacher.

We are thrilled to say that Natasha Wein, one of the 2022 award winners, has work in our Berkshire Artists Guild group show opening May 7 and running through June 4.
