Opening Reception: Thursday November 19th 2015
Exhibition Dates: November 19 – January 10, 2016
Project Gallery will be hosting it’s annual salon-style art exhibition at our Queen Street gallery location from November 19 – January 10, 2016. This two month-long exhibit will showcase a dynamic roster of many artists working with diverse subject matter, media and styles.
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.
