A beautiful exhibition of paintings, etchings, photographs, ceramics and sculpture - with a special focus on artists living and working in the North.
Art for Youth North enables both established and new artists to show their work and raises funds for the leading youth work charity, UK Youth. The exhibition has already raised nearly £200,000 for young people.
Prices range from £40 - £3000 and prints and unframed portfolio work are also available. Artists donate 33% of sales to the charity.
Mystery Pictures are on-sale. These are postcard-sized artworks priced at £40 each. The buyer will only know who the artist is after purchase.
For the first time in 2016 we will have an area dedicated to young emerging artists. In 2014 we raised over £30,000 for UK Youth.
UK Youth has been working to better the lives of young people for over 100 years, and their experience is second to none. Through their network of youth development organisations across the UK, they empower 729,694 young people to take control of their own lives with the support, encouragement and opportunities they need to help them reach their full potential and grow into confident, capable adults who lead fulfilling lives. In 2014/15 over 68,583 of these young people took part in their innovative programmes, gained accreditation or attended UK Youth’s outdoor learning centre at Avon Tyrrell.
