Show Runs: May 1 - 30
Reception - Friday, May 1st (6pm - 9pm)
For the month of May, Tacocat has created an open call for entries, asking artists to submit the piece of artwork they define as their best. The juried exhibition will be a highlight of the best work of artists in their own eyes. Explainations from each artist will accompany each piece for viewers to become aware of the reasoning each artist finds the individual works to be their best. Guest jurors Tom Katzenmeyer, President of the Greater Columbus Arts Council and Mary Gray, Director of the Ohio Arts Council Riffe Gallery will be joining Tacocat for selection of the best works.

ANNIVERSARY SHOW : EXPOSED3
Show runs: August
In August, Tacocat Cooperative will celebrate its second year since the opening of the gallery to the public. To mark the occasion and to showcase the productivity that has happened in the space since opening, the co-operative will once again take over the gallery, showcasing new work by members of the group.
ARTIST SpOTLIGHT: Mary ann crago
Show Runs: September
Reception - TBD
As an awareness of artists in the community, Tacocat Cooperative has chosen a select group of artists to spotlight. The Tacocat Cooperative Artist Spotlight allows artists who have shown a high level in quality in the production of their work, a professionalism about their previous opportunities, and a positive attitude toward the community. We hope that these solo opportunities for selected artists to show their work will allow them a greater platform for success with their artistic goals.
In an effort to compare the work of great Columbus artists to artists working outside of central Ohio, Tacocat Cooperative is hosting In/Out. Each member of the cooperative will choose one in town artist, as well as one out of town artist to feature on the gallery walls. The showcase will provide both viewers and artists with a healthy comparison between the work being created here and the work being created out of town.
