Sybarite Nights | July Platform #15




Sybarite Nights – cabaret in an art gallery!


Join us in July for our monthly cabaret set in an art gallery!

This light-hearted mayhem always promises a fantastic bill, possibly including singing/comedy/magic/rapping and definitely some insults for good measure! 

A variety of exquisite local performers and talent from far and wide will be taking to the stage

The multi-talented artist, writer, composer, film historian, poet and broadcaster Jude Cowan Montague will be singing acapella

Female vocalist and MC Veronica Youdell will be performing her vocal tones and spoken flows, while Genio will be performing his characteristically expressive songs

And as usual, local singer Doc Martin will be treating us to his dance hall tunes and Greg Williams, solo artist of mellifluous angst, will be performing an acoustic set

Resident compere beyond compare Lindsay Moran will be introducing the line-up

As always it will be a truly unique celebration of music, performance, and community spirit

A superb selection of fine wines and signature cocktails will be available at the Leyden Gallery artBar

Please book early via Eventbrite as space is limited

*If you are interested in performing at one of our future events, then please drop us a message on and tell us what your special talent is*

World Illustration Awards 2017 Category Winners Announced





Tony Rodriguez 'Billy Murray | Mark Twain Prize' for the Washington Post

The Association of Illustrators, in partnership with the Directory of Illustration in California, is excited to announce category winners of the World Illustration Awards.

This year’s winning entries were selected by a panel of international judges from all aspects of the industry including commissioners, publishers and artists, such as Alexandra Zsigmond, Designer at the New York Times, Matt Smith, Creative at Australian public broadcaster SBS and London-based Jonathan Hubbard, Creative Director and Founder of The Clearing.

Zan Boag, Editor-in-Chief of New Philosopher and Editorial Director of Womankind magazine said after the initial shortlisting: “A wonderful bunch of entries, I look forward to discussing the favourites with the other judges. I think these are all excellent artworks - I would commission all of these artists in an instant.”

Category winners include a characterful portrait of Bill Murray for the Washington Post by US-based artist Tony Rodriguez, which was lauded by the jury for its strong composition and well executed traditional technique that captures the subject perfectly and in a unique style. Claudine O’Sullivan’s complex digital illustrations for the Apple Pencil Campaign were commended by the jury for their superb technique: “Flawlessly executed: can’t stop myself from staring at the pencil's mesmerizing effect, it's quite original” - judge Gabe Usadel. Lizzy Stewart’s playful and vibrant illustrations for children’s book ‘There’s a Tiger in the Garden’ were an immediate favourite with the category jury thanks to their full texture and character which reflect the key scenes from the book. Up-and-coming British talent Bethan Woollvin’s college projectLittle Red’ delighted the jury with its simple yet powerful imagery, portraying a contemporary retelling of Little Red Riding Hood with an androgynous protagonist, who could be seen as a relatable role model to all children. 

Environmental themes are addressed with works by Chen Winner, whose educational animation made for CNN titled ‘Econundrum’ shows the consequences of buying bottled water, while the imaginative series of illustrations titled ‘Yen Town - The Last Unpolluted Territory’ by Sam Ki, depict a unity of humanity and the natural world.

Also of note is Marguerite Carnec’s series ‘Lieu de Vie’ which documents the artist’s time spent volunteering in The Jungle refugee camp in Calais and was skillfully created using a monoprint technique.

All category winners will feature in an exhibition at Somerset House from 31 July to 28 August. With over 2,300 entries from 64 countries for this year’s World Illustration Awards, the exhibition will showcase 50 shortlisted projects across the eight categories, from Advertising and Design to Books and Editorial, offering an accessible introduction to illustration in its many forms, and demonstrating the importance of visual communication in everyday life. Original exhibited works on display will include animations, posters, packaging and children’s books by artists from the UK, USA, Italy, The Netherlands, South Korea, Hong Kong and Israel.

This year, The World Illustration Awards is teaming up with Walker Books, the world's leading independent publisher of English-language children's books, to offer the Walker Books Family Programme. A series of free family workshops will take place throughout August in the exhibition space at Somerset House. These include workshops with debut author-illustrator Alice Tait, award-winning author-illustrator of the ‘Julius Zebra’ series Gary Northfield, upcoming artist and illustrator Elissa Elwick, and debut graffiti illustrator Sav Akyuz.

The lab will culminate in a sharing of the work to an invited audience.


This is a rare opportunity to benefit from the combined expertise of respected practitioners, whilst practically applying their shared experience in a working ensemble.


Participants will take away a wealth of resources to build upon in future work, along with increased skill, confidence and understanding working in this form, plus connections with other artists.

Cheyanne Sauter has been a nonprofit professional for over 20 years. Her expertise lies in program development, fundraising, and building relationships, and she has worked with diverse populations. Her previous positions include Associate Director of Development at Foundation Fighting Blindness and Assistant Director of Fundraising at LA Conservation Corps. Her true calling lies in working with and supporting artists, and in early 2000, she answered this call by co-founding Gallery Row alongside three founders. Gallery Row’s mission is to bring economic and cultural revitalization to a blighted Downtown Los Angeles by cultivating the presence of artists, galleries, and culture. During her time there, Gallery Row grew to birth the Downtown Art Walk, an immensely popular and beloved Angeleno organization that brings hundreds of thousands of art lovers and community members to Downtown Los Angeles’ cultural offerings.

In July 2013, Cheyanne joined Art Share Los Angeles as an unpaid Interim Director to revitalize this nonprofit whose existence looked bleak after the recession. Within the next two years, she developed a viable programmatic model that supported 200 visual and performing artists annually, and rebuilt Art Share L.A.’s reputation as an invaluable cultural resource for emerging Angeleno artists. Today, Art Share L.A. has a staff of six and offers diverse programming that engages hundreds of emerging artists to create, exhibit, and share their work with thousands of art lovers annually.

Cheyanne has served as a member of the executive team for the Cultural Stakeholders Committee, whose goal is to provide visibility for the arts and preserve and promote Los Angeles’ cultural and heritage. She currently sits on the boards of the Los Angeles River and Business Association (LARABA) and the Arts District Business Improvement District (ADLA).

MISSION of ArtShare LA (FOUNDED: 1997)

Our mission is to support artists by providing a creative environment for them to reside, develop, perform, and exhibit. Art Share L.A. inspires artists and provides connection to the community for shared benefits. We maintain a 28,000 square ft. warehouse in the heart of the Arts District. Upstairs, we provide 30 subsidized live/work lofts for artists. Downstairs, we have a community-programmed facility offering classes, exhibitions, and events.
