Artists’ Tuck Shop is a curatorial project initiated by Glasgow based artist and curator David McDiarmid (with more than a little help from some pals!)
We work with artists who share a passion for food to produce specially commissioned artworks that we stock and sell on their behalf via our online shop, pop-up market appearances and wholesale partnerships with other UK-based indie shops and businesses.
We are currently working towards producing our own homemade snack range and organising some pop up restaurant nights (featuring art as well as food on the menu!) to raise funds for further art commissions.
We’ve even produced our own cookbook – with recipes by artists of course – with the proceeds going towards some new artwork commissions by artists featured in the book.
Through these means we aim to boost artists’ income so they can drop hours from unrelated employments and focus more on developing sustainable, creative careers going forward!
