Celebrating 27 years of Art for Youth London
Now entering its 27th year, this highly popular exhibition has consistently
provided quality artwork at affordable prices, giving art enthusiasts the
opportunity to buy pieces by talented contemporary artists. The quality of the
art displayed is exceptional: and buyers have added satisfaction in knowing
that their purchases have not only benefited hundreds of artists; they have also
changed the lives of thousands of young people across the country through the
charity, UK Youth.
Over 1,000 works of art valued from £200 to £5,000 are offered for sale by
approximately 140 artists; oils, watercolours, ceramics, sculpture, photographs
and jewellery will be on display. Artists donate 35% of their sales to the charity.
About 2,000 people visit this exhibition every year so it is recommended that
tickets be pre-ordered to ensure a space. This event is sponsored by Amlin and
supported by Strutt & Parker. More information about Art for Youth London can
be found on
