Project Gallery will be hosting a large-format salon style exhibition of contemporary artworks from April 3-13th, entitled the SALON SHOW. The Salon exhibition style was established in 1667 in France by the Academie des Beaux-Arts and held in the Louvre. To accommodate the vast quantity of work submitted by students of the Academie, artworks were displayed from floor to ceiling with little space separating frames. This style has since been incorporated throughout history in museums and galleries, including the Art Gallery of Ontario’s display of its European collection.
Project Gallery will be integrating this historic exhibition style in its upcoming Salon Show, opening Thursday April 3 (6-10pm). With over 80 local, Canadian and international artists’ work in the exhibition, the gallery’s walls will be strategically filled with over 300 artworks 24” x 24” or smaller. In celebration of Project Gallery’s collaboration of historic tradition and contemporary artwork, there will be an opening reception Thursday, April 3rd from 6-10pm. There will also be a closing reception on Sunday, April 13th from 2-6pm.
