One of the North’s leading contemporary art exhibitions, Art For Youth North, returns this week.
Art for Youth North is held every two years, providing a unique one-off opportunity to view and buy some of the North’s biggest names in contemporary art, including many Yorkshire-based artists. 33% of every piece sold goes to UK Youth, the largest national body and a leading charity for the youth sector.
We’re delighted to offer our support to this great event and cause, along with other businesses from around the region including JM Finn, Strutt & Parker, Richard Grafton Interiors, Himalayan Garden Sculpture Park, Bishopdale Group, Elstob & Elstob, The Search Partnership, Fordy Marshall, House of Townend, Owens Professional and Rougemont.
Our Managing Director Polly Staveley commented “TL Dallas are delighted to support the return of this fantastic contemporary art show, which we have sponsored for many years. It is a great opportunity to support a fabulous cause while enjoying and maybe purchasing some art. Art sales of over £25,000 have already been made in the first 2 days, of which a whopping 33% goes directly to the charity – they hope this figure will increase over the week.”
Organiser Victoria Hunt stated “Art for Youth North is valuable in so many ways and we would urge anyone with a love of art to call in. Not only does it raise much needed funds for the national charity UK Youth but it also supports many Northern Artists. All our artists are always really excited to be exhibiting but especially this year, as the pandemic closed so many doors for them. Young people are more in need of our help than ever and UK Youth has a range of programmes running throughout the country (including Yorkshire and the North East) that support our youth.”
With contributions from over 70 artists and displaying over 750 individual pieces, it has something for everyone from paintings, etchings and photographs to sculpture and ceramics and with prices ranging from £20 to £4000.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, it is held daily from Tuesday 26th October to Saturday 30th October at St Mary’s School, Topcliffe near Thirsk,
A wide range of the region’s artists are on show including Ian Burke, Rob Shaw, Katrine Furness, Emerson Mays, Lottie Mcateer and Susan Dugdale.
