Launching Westbury Young Artist of the Year 

At the beginning of 2020 we had big plans to launch the first ever "Westbury Young Artist of the year", unfortunately along with many other events we had to put our plans on hold.


That is until now.... We are pleased to announce that 2021 sees the re-launch of "Westbury Young Artist of the Year".


Our young artist of the year award is a chance to celebrate young artists at primary & secondary school level. 


This event is all about encouraging young artists and providing  a fantastic opportunity to have work exhibited within our exhibition space during a major Milton Keynes art event.


The exhibition runs from 10th - 18th July 2021, visitors will be able to view the exhibition either in person at Westbury Arts Centre or view in our online gallery.
