The Tomato Art Festival:: East Nashville

Last Saturday we stopped by the Tomato Art Festival in East Nashville for a bit to wander around.  The weather was actually very comfortable and unlike a typical August day in Nashville.  The streets were full of people, arts and crafts booths, food for sale and live music in between.  We made our way to the Art and Invention Gallery right off the intersection at Five Points. The Tomato Art Festival was started by the owners of the gallery in 2004 and has grown tremendously over the years.  Inside the gallery was all the Tomato themed artwork which is one of my favorite parts of the festival.

Here are a few of my favorites::
Jamie Grubbs
Mater Moon Serenade

Andy Detwiler
Summer Games
(Acrylic Gel Photo Transfer Wood)

Lorri Honeycutt
Eat Good Food

Barbara Coon
They Come for Brunch #1
(Copper, Wood Acrylic, Mixed Media)

Vicki Sawyer

(Acrylic on Canvas)

There were so many lovely pieces of art!

And to really get the feel of what the whole thing was like and see some more great artwork check out this wonderful video by the lovely and talented Beth Inglish.

I actually despise tomatoes! They're literally one of my least favorite foods. Hahah that being said, it looks like you had a great time at the festival! I'm in love with Tennessee and would love to live there some day. :/ Found you through the blog hop and can't wait to see more of your cuteness. :)
