Sketch for Survival 2021

Many thanks to all the artists who supported us through our Sketch for Survival 2021 competition. It has been another record-breaking year, with nearly 1,000 entries from 47 countries. Our youngest artist was aged 2 and the oldest 90. The variety was incredible with paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour; drawings and sketches in pencil, biro, felt tip and ink; mosaics, needlework, resins, felt work,  canvas, board…the list goes on.

The artworks of our 100 Finalists are in our 2021 online auction. The artworks from our Highly Commended & Conservation Collections are available through our Explorer Gallery. Click the links below to view the artworks.

Selection took several days, with plenty of healthy debate and deliberation between members of the panel. There are three collections,  plus Juniors:

100 Finalists –  artwork exhibited at gallery@oxo alongside our Invitational Collection and then sold via our online auction 28 November.

100 Highly Commended  –  artworks displayed for sale in aid of our projects in both our pop-up and online stores, including gallery@oxo

100 Conservation Collection –  artworks showcased through virtual gallery space and offered for sale online in aid of our projects from 1 October.

Many thanks to everyone who took part in this year’s Sketch for Survival, and congratulations to all the selected artists.
