Art Graduates Prize 2014 Shortlist Announced

Works in Print and Herbert Smith Freehills are excited to announce the shortlist for this year’s Art Graduates Prize. Entries were open to any graduating artist from any UK university and we had a very high standard of entrants following a hectic summer of talent scouting at degree shows!

22 shortlisted artists have been selected to take part in an exclusive private viewing of buyers and corporate collectors. The winner will be announced at this event which will take place in November. Last year’s private viewing held at Herbert Smith Freehills’ office, located in the heart of the City of London, attracted over 150 attendees and 75% of all the works available sold on the night.

The winner will be selected by public vote via WiP’s state-of-the-art voting tool- watch this space! Without further ado, here are this year’s finalists…
