Meetinghouse Arts – Salon 24: The Art of the Salon Style Hanging

June 1 @ 10:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until June 1, 2024

Salon style was a hierarchical way of displaying work in large competition-like, juried exhibitions. The shows were criticized for being too uniform, uninteresting. A single style (later dubbed “academic art”) was favored, while more avant-garde or experimental work was refused. This gave birth to the salons-de-refuse, exhibitions of refused work and the beginning of movements that pushed art in new directions like Impressionism and Fauvism.
Salon 24 leans towards the latter. This un-juried exhibition provides a diversity of art and artist, offering a show that is interesting and engaging. A show intended to give a voice and connection to the community of creators through a pull from
history.

On Thursday evenings during the 4 week show we will offer social gatherings for artists and art enthusiasts to come together as the original salons did when creative shared experiences were one of the main attractions.
