At Hashimoto Contemporary gallery in Los Angeles, there is more than enough for everyone. Almost 50 artists have contributed to Probabilitya group exhibition opening this week that celebrates the joys, comforts and displeasures of sharing a meal.

From paintings and drawings to ceramics and crochet, the show covers a wide range of tastes and preferences and features dozens of works that speak to food and community gatherings across cultures. Included are pieces by several artists who previously appeared on Colossal, including Lou Benesch, Liz Flores, Sara Hagale, Seonna Hong, and Kate Jenkins.

Probability is now in its fourth version and will be available from February 10 to March 2.
