Call for submissions: Food to Go…

Project Ability presents Food to go… an exhibition celebrating food, plenty, production and food related items.

This is a call for submissions to all artists working in all media inspired by FOOD. Food to go… is a one stop Christmas shop. Enter the gallery, browse the shelves, select and purchase, pay at the till, pack and go.

Painting, drawing, textiles, print, ceramics, or sculptures can all be submitted, just as long as it relates to food.

Food to go… is a cornucopia of gooeyness, gluttony, beauty and abundance, classical and comforting, still and effervescent. 

Food to go… is presented by Project Ability as an inclusive platform for artists with different lived experience to come together to celebrate their creativity and their love of food.  Selected works will be exhibited impartially alongside art produced in Project Ability’s studio by children and young people with disabilities, people with mental ill-health and people with learning disabilities.
