Artist Information

Art for Youth North is one of two art exhibitions held in the UK to raise funds for UK Youth.  Art for Youth London is held annually in December at the Mall Galleries.

The exhibition gives tremendous encouragement and opportunity to artists in the region whose "gallery fee" of 33% from art sold is donated instead to the charity. Some artists very generously fully-donate the entire sale to UK Youth - for this we are very grateful. 

A maximum price for work submitted is £3,000.

Paintings, photography, sculpture and ceramics

The exhibition is a mixture of affordable, contemporary art for :

  • Oils
  • Watercolours
  • Mixed Media
  • Drawings
  • Sculpture
  • Ceramics
  • Photography

Mystery Pictures

An opportunity to buy a mini masterpiece. These postcard sized original paintings and photographs are very generously donated and sold as 'artist unknown'.

Artists prepared to donate a mystery picture will be sent a pack including paper for their work. Names are only written on the back and kept a closely guarded secret.

Each postcard sells for £45 but the artist's identity will only be revealed after the picture is bought and all proceeds from Mystery Picture sales go to the charity.

If you are exhibiting and would be prepared to kindly donate a mystery picture please indicate this on the Artist's Registration form. For more detailed information on the Mystery pictures click on Mystery Pictures page on the left.

If you are unable to exhibit any other work this year, but would still be happy to send in a mystery picture, please complete the Mystery Picture form on the Mystery Picture page.


UK Youth North

UK Youth is a leading national charity, founded in 1911, that delivers non-formal education opportunities for young people aged 9-25 across the length and breadth of the country. Their mission is to work hand in hand with young people – and the dedicated organisations supporting them – to develop the skills, belief, courage and leadership to build a bright future.

 Through their network of youth organisations across the country, they reach and impact on more than 830,500 young people every year. Of these 55,000 participate in UK Youth apprenticeships, accreditations, their life changing programmes and outdoor education at Avon Tyrrell in the New Forest.  

UK Youth simply couldn’t continue its vital work without the funds raised at Art for Youth North.
