Once a year the Anxious Tomato hosts a collaborative group show with a theme.


This year's theme, Juxtaposition, refers to the art of placing two contrasting or opposing elements side by side in order to highlight their differences or similarities. We encourage artists to interpret this theme in their own unique ways, and to experiment with a range of materials, styles, and techniques. We are open to any and all forms of artistic expression, to include dance, music and poetry in addition to traditional medium based artworks.

We are proud to be a partner with Artco Gallery. 

Artco Gallery's space has 5, reposition-able white walls with sizes ranging from 22" up to 70" as well as a 3D/sculpture space. Exhibitions are hosted monthly and are accompanied by a reception.


You can view their calls online. They offer solo art shows, curated group shows and themed shows.
