Brownwood Art Association’s Salon des Refusés.
The first Salon des Refusés took place in Paris in 1855. It translates to mean “exhibition of rejects” and was filled with the works not accepted into the Paris Salon, which was considered exclusive and political. The first Salon des Refusés included works by brilliant artists such as Manet and Whistler.
While the first Salon contained works not hung at Palais de l’Industrie, Brownwood Art Association’s Salon des Refusés will exhibit works not accepted for the Stars of Texas Juried Art Show. They won’t have Manet or Whistler but will be exhibiting incredible works by talented artists from around the state.
The gallery is located at 215 Fisk Street in Downtown Brownwood, and will be open to the public February 6th-19th for this special show. The Brownwood Art Center will be open 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday, and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. There is no entrance fee, and all are invited.
