Salon des Refusés

A pop-up gallery exhibit and celebration!

The first ever exhibition and celebration of all works not accepted into the LPCA Open Juried Show.

This pop-up celebration is modeled after the original Salon des Refusés exhibit held in 1863 Paris during the elite, annual Paris Salon. The original Salon was meant to assuage artist protests while allowing the public to make their own judgments of works that were not selected for the "main" exhibit. 

We believe all art has value. By displaying the pieces that did not happen to fit within the jurors' curatorial vision this fall, we recognize each artist's significant contribution to North Country culture and community. The LPCA's Salon des Refusés will celebrate this year's non-juried works with a pop-up gallery exhibit and reception in the Annex building (17 Algonquin Drive) from 5:00 to 7:00pm on Thursday, September 26.

 Featuring food, drink, and a live performance by the local band Crackin' Foxy

...dedicated to presenting and fostering quality arts, which inspire, enrich, educate and entertain people of all ages.
