Excellence of Youth Charity Art Exhibition 30th Nov. - 2nd Dec. 2018
Hello, thank you for visiting EOY !
Who we are
The Excellence of Youth (EOY) Exhibition was founded by Jane Clark, who has a long history of fundraising and supporting young artists. Since 2012, each EOY exhibition has been run as a joint venture between Jane, Dona de Winton (Drey Contemporary) and Jennifer Twomey (Artbenefact LLP) with Anthony Yannaghas joining the team in 2016. Following on from a successful EOY 2013, 2014 and 2016, EOY 2018 is heading to the historic coastal town of Aldeburgh in Suffolk and a stunning new contemporary seafront venue generously sponsored by our Patron Jane Clark and family. This year EOY is delighted to be supporting The Maddi Foundation.
What we do
EOY is a fundraising art exhibition and unique platform for artists under the age of 30. ‘The Excellence of Youth’ was originally organised as a way to thank a handful of talented young artists who very generously donated original artworks for auction at the Magic Bus Gala Dinner, held annually at The Dorchester Hotel in London.
EOY has since welcomed other young artists wishing to 'give back' to great EOY causes. The EOY Team in turn pour their collective experience, connections and enthusiasm into organising each EOY exhibition.
Why we do it
Our motivation, as we celebrate the 'Excellence of Youth' is to showcase exceptional contemporary works of art by emerging artists, and in so doing, raise vital funds for a great cause. Each member of the EOY team is passionate about both art and philanthropy, so being able to support such a special cause such as 'The Maddi Foundation' is hugely rewarding.
The generosity of our young EOY artists, clients and team will help fund vital research and treatment efforts in the hope of not only stopping progression of SPG15 but also finding a cure. The Maddi Foundation hope their work will open the doors to help other similar orphan diseases. We hope you will join us this November as we support the talent of young artists and play our part in finding a cure for Maddi.
