Charity welcomes back visitors to its gallery

Project Ability has returned with its Young Talent programme after a two-year hiatus.

Established in 1984, Project Ability is a Glasgow-based visual arts organisation with an international reputation for excellence creating opportunities for people with disabilities and people with lived experience of mental ill-health.

The disability charity runs two different studio programmes for artists in their 20s and younger.

Create is for artists under the age of 21 and Art Matters is open to artists aged from 21-28. It also runs outreach programmes and this year has work from two local schools in its Young Talent exhibition.

The charity said: “The sheer volume of artists in this show and the level of talent and imagination, combined with so many different mediums and styles, makes for an exciting atmosphere and a really fun gallery experience.”

This exhibition also marks another celebratory moment for the Project Ability gallery. For the first time in over two years it is inviting the public in for a reception with the artists. This will take place on the opening day of the show, 9 July, from 1-3pm. 

A spokesperson added: “We’re so excited to have Young talent back again, and we can’t wait to hear what people think of the show. Please leave us your thoughts in our comments book if you come visit, or let us know online what you like most about Young Talent 2022!”
