ORIGINAL GRAVITY 2021: the winners!
To celebrate ten years of brewing at Eight Degrees, we decided that we wanted to showcase Ireland-based artists in our 2021 ORIGINAL GRAVITY series.
We ran a competition looking for artworks that reflected our Naturally Adventurous values, expressing our desire to explore and roam again.
The winners, who each won €1,000 for their work, will be featured on a series of five limited beer releases, giving these emerging artists a can-sized exhibition space.
We were blown away with the engagement from artists and the level of entries that we got. We have to say a big thank you to all the people who put time and effort into creating work for the competition.
And with that – drumroll please! – we’re delighted to announce the winners:
John Culhane – release date: late June
Michael Donnelly – release date: mid July
Niamh McCarthy – release date: mid August
Julie Daunt – release date: mid September
Coireall Kent – release date: mid November
Watch out for these limited edition cans on shelves near you soon!
