Ripe Tomatoes

Ripe Tomatoes is an online exhibition of outstanding work by a group of recent graduates from Solent University and Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton.

The project provides an opportunity for 18 emerging artists to exhibit a recent body of work in a new virtual gallery space: The Alfred Arcade. The artists have met via Zoom and engaged in critical discussion and 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 and was created by WSA alumni and artist, George Thom.

You can also now watch a recording of the Ripe Tomatoes Launch Event, which will take you on an artist lead tour of exhibition. The tour includes live art performances and a Q&A with the artists and George Thom. There’s also a link to download the chat archive from this event, where many questions were discussed and answered.
