The Salon of Inclusiveness II Holiday Show & Sale

Back for the second year now, our biggest and most inclusive group show of the year!

The Black Cat’s 2nd, Salon of Inclusiveness

Exhibition runs from November 26th –December 31st 2015

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 will be rejected from this show, the only requirement is that it can be hung on our gallery walls.

Photos from last years show:

As an alternative art space, TheBlackCat 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 space over the past two 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 TWO Opening reception(s):

November 26th, 2015 - 7pm - 10:30pm

November 27th, 2015 - 7pm - 10:30pm *NEWLY ADDED

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.
