Art for Youth London, first hosted by Mall Galleries in 1987, is a hugely popular exhibition raising funds for the National youth work charity UK Youth. Emerging young artists, chosen by a Selection Panel, have the chance to exhibit alongside more established ones. Around 130 artists take part and the event showcases over 1,000 exceptional works of art, affordably priced from £200 to £5,000.
Art enthusiasts can acquire oils, watercolours, ceramics, sculpture, photographs and jewellery, knowing that they are supporting talented contemporary artists, while also transforming the lives of thousands of young people across the country with their purchases. Artists donate 35% of sales to the charity, UK Youth. Funds are also raised through two live auctions, a silent auction, a raffle and mystery postcards selling for £35.
Artist Prizes include The Wates Foundation Diana Brooks prize: the Parker Prize and the Afshin Naghouni prize.
Since inception, this event has raised almost £1,500,000 for the charity.
Please note that the Cafe will be closed during this exhibition.
