Newton Supports Art for Youth North

LONDON, 13 September 2012 — Newton*, the global thematic investment manager for BNY Mellon, has announced its sponsorship of the seventh Art for Youth North exhibition, which will take place on 25-27 October at Queen Mary’s School, Topcliffe in North Yorkshire.

Art for Youth North, which has taken place every two years since 2001, enables both new and established artists to show their work in an exhibition of paintings, etchings, photographs, ceramics and sculpture - with a special focus on artists living and working in the North. Thirty per cent of the sales will then be donated to leading youth work charity, UK Youth.

The northern initiative has already raised over £100,000 to help young people and has become a well-established and respected exhibition. This latest sponsorship underlines Newton’s belief in the arts as a vital part of society, as well as emphasising the company’s commitment to initiatives that inspire artistic talents of all ages.

Helena Morrissey, chief executive of Newton, comments: “We are very pleased to be sponsoring Art for Youth North for another year as it affirms our commitment to supporting the artistic talents of people of all ages and backgrounds. The exhibition receives a tremendous response from local artists while raising money for an extremely worthwhile cause. We are very excited to see the new as well as existing local talent that will be showcased at the exhibition.”

The value of investments and the income from them is not guaranteed and can fall as well as rise due to stock market and currency movements. When you sell your investment you may get back less than you originally invested.
