"Roma American Gothic" (A Preview of Tomato Art Fest this Weekend!)

Starting Friday, Art & Invention Gallery is hosting the opening of their annual Tomato Art Exhibit which coincides with the East Nashville tradition, the Tomato Art Fest!  For this year's exhibit, I created a parody of Grant Wood's "American Gothic," by recreating the contemporary classic with tomato-headed subjects!  This miniature 5in x 7in work will be on display with a slew of other tomato-inspired creations this weekend and all month long at the gallery.  This year you won't find me at the big festival though as I'll be celebrating my 5th Anniversary with my Ultimate Art Wife, Aurora!  Someone take a picture of the framed and finished work on the gallery wall for me!
