Our largest show of the year: The Black Cat Artspace's 4th annual, Salon of Inclusiveness
Exhibition runs from November 30th –December 31st 2017
Gallery hours: Thursday - Sunday: 2-7pm
To celebrate the end of the year, we are using the fundamental idea of crowdsourcing to bring together a large and inclusive group show. No medium or work was rejected from this show.

As an alternative space, Black Cat Artspace doesn't have to answer to any particular set of aesthetics or rules, and as a result has seen a wide variety of shows, in a wide variety of mediums grace the walls over the past three and a half years.
The Salon of Inclusiveness, is a play and positive take on the Salon des Refusés:
"In 1863 two thirds of paintings presented at the Paris Salon were refused, including the works of Courbet, Édouard Manet, Camille Pissaro and Johan Jongkind. The works which didn't align with the Emperor's traditional tastes we're upon protest shown in another part of the palace as the "Salon des Refusés." The critical attention served to legitimize the emerging avant-garde in painting."
Due to the popularity of the show last year we will be hosting THREE Opening reception(s):
November 30th, 2017 - 7pm - 10:30pm
December 1st, 2017 - 7pm - 10:30pm

Near the beginning of each opening there will be time for a friendly and informal critique where anyone showing can explain their work and others will have a chance to offer a critique or ask questions.
