Salon Des Refuses @ Mendelson Gallery

Steve Mendelson is giving a number of works rejected from this years Associated Artists Of Pittsburgh another shot with a provocatively named show called Salon Des Refuses. The title evokes a legendary show in 1863 of all the works turned down by the Paris Salon which included a who's who of future impressionist masters like Manet, Degas and Renoir. The show will include 20 works from artists like Robert Villamagna, Mark Panza, Laura Marins and Ben Matthews.

Here's Kurt Shaw's review.

I love that Idea of second chances for everyone, including artists.
It should be interesting to visit both shows to see if one could see the difference or agree with the choices of the curator.
