The private view and prize giving for the 2021 Youth Art show took place on July 22nd in the Sutton Library Gallery. Shortlisted artists gathered along with teachers, family, and friends, to see their work on display and to find out who won this year’s awards. We are delighted to have been able to stage an exhibition of the shortlisted works – the show is now open to all from 23rd July to 5th August during library opening hours in the Sutton Library Gallery, located on the second floor of the library. Please visit and admire the shortlisted works – they represent some of the excellent youth art in our borough.


Our award judges had a tough time reviewing the high standard of submissions. This year the judging panel is made up of the following people – representing a wide range of arts, cultural, and educational groups from across the borough.

  • Kathryn Chapman
  • Siobhan Kneale
  • Kate Marsden
  • Nikcarl McKenzie
  • Adrienne Roberts

Thanks to all our judges for the time and effort you invested in coming to your decisions – we know it wasn’t easy as the standard of work is high.


Thank you to Councillor Steve Cook for presenting the prizes, and thanks to Kelly Saini Badwal and Siobhan Kneale from the London Borough of Sutton Cultural Services team for all their hard work in helping to organise and prepare the show.
