Salon des Refusés Exhibition 2020

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 Studio Art faculty and the prizes were juried by local artist/educator, Joe Walters. 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.
