The Unipart House community gallery runs for three days this May and is accepting applications to display art, including painting, sculpture, textiles, ceramics and photography. The deadline to apply is 31 March 2020.

Artists chosen to display their work will do so for free, with 10 percent of any art sold donated to Oxford Food Bank.

Unipart Group in Cowley announced Oxford Food Bank as its nominated charity last year. Unipart volunteers calculated Oxford Food Bank saved more than £1m of food from landfill a year and redistributed it to local charities.

Debs Astles, Unipart Group HR director – corporate responsibility, said: ‘We want to open up Oxfordshire Art Weeks to our employees and the wider community to help raise money for our nominated charity Oxford Food Bank which saves £1m of food from landfill every year, redistributing it to 80 charities across Oxfordshire.’

‘If you would like to apply to display your work, whether it’s painting, sculpture, ceramics or photography, get in touch before 31 March to be considered. If you’re successful you can display your work for free provided you donate 10 percent of any art sold to Oxford Food Bank.’

To apply email artweek@unipart.com.

The Unipart House community gallery runs from Tuesday 19 May to Thursday 21 May 2020 and will be open to the public.
