Salon des Refusés Exhibition 2023

The Salon des Refusés exhibition is (virtually) installed in the Hill Gallery exhibition space in the Cato Center for the Arts. The works in the Salon were chosen by the Studio Art faculty and the prizes were juried by local artists/educators. The origin of the Salon des Refusés dates to Paris in 1863, when artists who had been rejected from the official Salon caused such a protest that Emperor Napoleon III ordered another exhibition held for them. Among the painters in the original Salon des Refusés were Camille Pissaro, Henri Fantin-Latour, James M. Whistler, and Edouard Manet.

The Studio Art Department would like to acknowledge Dean Edward Hart and the Dean’s Excellence Fund for the College of Charleston School of the Arts for funding the Young Contemporary and Salon des Refuses awards.
