Salon des Refusés

Artion Gallery, 275 Water St., NYC

The Salon des Refusés is French for “Exhibition of Rejects,” originally referring to the Paris Salon of 1863. Normally, this would refer to any exhibition of works rejected from a juried art show. Artist Michael Anderson, as curator of the exhibition, brings together a group of New York artists and longtime friends who produce uncomfortable work that is both beautiful and stimulating.

Artists Include: Aaron Johnson, Alfred Steiner, Debra Hampton, Jessica Speckhard, Michael Anderson, Noah Becker, and Tom Sanford (works pictured here).
