The Tomato Art Fest was founded in 2004, when Art & Invention Gallery hosted a late summer art show celebrating the tomato, and planned a few neighborhood events to promote the show. The Tomato Art Show proved so popular that it was immediately turned into an annual, signature event for the hip, urban neighborhood of East Nashville.
The Tomato Art Show is one of the highlights of the festival, and with artwork ranging from the exquisite to the hilarious, there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy!
Our motto is, “The Tomato…A Uniter, Not A Divider- Bringing Together Fruits & Vegetables”.
I created three new paintings for this show, in keeping with my Joie de Vivre Series, featuring the “love apple”.
The Tomato Art Festival is August 10th & 11th and the Tomato Art Show is on view at Art & Invention Gallery thru the month of August.
