Ripe Tomatoes

Ripe Toma­toes is an online exhi­bi­tion of out­stand­ing work by recent grad­u­ates from Solent Uni­ver­si­ty and WSA, Uni­ver­si­ty of Southampton

Launching in August 2020, the project will provide an opportunity for 18 emerging artists to exhibit a recent body of work in a new virtual gallery space: The Alfred Arcade. The artists will meet via Zoom, exhibit online and engage in critical debate; forming networks and friendships that will help them sustain a fruitful visual arts practice here in Southampton.

The virtual gallery which hosts Ripe Tomatoes is modelled on the Alfred Arcade on Old Northam Road and was created by WSA alumni and artist, George Peter Thom (A.K.A. Groock's Gallery)

Join us at 7pm on Friday 21st August for the live launch event! We will meet on Zoom and take an artist lead tour of the virtual Alfred Arcade featuring live art performances, followed by a Q&A.
