Thursday September 14 to Saturday October 7, 2017
Rotorua District Library, Rotorua
For the first time ever Rotorua Museum is delighted to host a Salon des Refusés exhibition in conjunction with the 2017 exhibition of finalists. All works not selected for the finalist exhibition are given the opportunity to be displayed in the Salon des Refusés exhibition.
Salon des Refusés is a French term for an exhibition of works not selected, and originates back in 1863 when works by now-famous artists like Manet, Whistler, Pissarro and Jongkind were not selected for the annual Paris Salon. The Salon des Refusés enables Rotorua Museum to showcase even more of the region’s artistic talent, and gives all the entered artists the opportunity to profile and sell their work.
The Rotorua Museum Art Awards 2017 exhibition of finalists will be on display at Sir Howard Morrison Performing Arts Centre from 9 September until 6 October 2017, 10am – 4pm.
