The Saatchi Gallery has always aimed to provide an innovative forum for contemporary art, presenting work by largely unseen young artists or by established international artists whose work has been rarely or never exhibited in the UK. When The Saatchi Gallery first opened twenty years ago it was only those people who had a dedicated interest in contemporary art who sought out the gallery to see work by new artists. The audience, however, built steadily over the years and the gallery now receives over 600,000 visitors a year, and over 1,000 schools have organized student visits. Many artists showing at The Saatchi Gallery are unknown when first exhibited, not only to the general public but also to the commercial art world. Many of these artists are subsequently offered shows by galleries and museums internationally. In this effect, the gallery also operates as a springboard for young artists to launch their careers.

No fees are payable to this site. Over the last 5 months Your Gallery on the Saatchi Gallery website has attracted thousands of artists from around the world who have loaded their work and profiles onto their own pages on this site, with no charge. Collectors and dealers are free to buy direct from the artists on this site, which receives over 3 million hits a day. Now a parallel service is available to all galleries.
In a new initiative to generate more exposure for the artists in Saatchi Online and Stuart, and to spotlight their work to as wide an audience as possible, we have created SHOWDOWN. SHOWDOWN is for all registered Saatchi Online and Stuart artists to enter their works for visitors to score. The winner of the final head-to-head vote will receive £1000 and the runner up will receive £750. The winning work will go on display at the new Saatchi gallery.
The process is as follows: on Monday mornings from 9 am (UK time) registered artists on Saatchi Online and Stuart have until 6 pm Sunday night (UK time) to load an image for Showdown
