Call for Submissions

Salon des Refusés  — Members’ Group Show

 Unfortunately, you have not  been accepted for this year’s Art Exhibition . . .
Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors.

If this sounds familiar, then  consider submitting to the Artists’ Network’s members exhibition! Inspired by the Salon des   Refusés 1864, where you would have found the masterpieces of Manet, Courbet, Cezanne and Pissaro, we are inviting and celebrating works “not selected”, or “refused.”  Leslie Grove Galley welcomes all sorts of original 2D or 3D works, in any medium,  and promises they won’t be  judged by the discerning eye of a juror. There is a catch, however. You can  submit only one artwork no larger than 24” x 24” that has been rejected at least once. Each artist has an equal chance of being selected for one of the  spaces in the gallery. You will be invited to LGG’s  Live Virtual Selection evening when we randomly select artists for the coveted spots in the gallery.
All submitted artworks will be featured online on the lesliegrovegallerystore.ca

Disclaimer: Depending on the COVID-19 restrictions, Salon des  Refusés, will, hopefully, be hung in the Leslie Grove Gallery; otherwise, it will be an exclusively virtual show  at  lesliegrovegallerystore.ca
