2019 Salon des Refusés Rotorua Museum Art AwardsUntil: Sunday, 17 November 2019
Venue: 1201 Eruera Street, Rotorua
Time: 10am - 4pm
Rotorua Museum is delighted to host a Salon des Refusés exhibition in conjunction with the 2019 exhibition of finalists.
All works not selected for the finalist exhibition are given the opportunity to be displayed in the Salon des Refusés exhibition, on show at the Pop Up Shop (1201 Eruera Street, Rotorua) from 2 November until 17 November 2019, between 10am – 4pm (except for Sun 17 November when the exhibition will close at midday).
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 2019 exhibition of finalists will be on display at the Energy Events Centre, Rotorua, from 23 October until 10 November 2019, 9am – 4pm (except for Sun 10 November when the exhibition will close at midday).
Entry to both exhibitions is free with all artworks for sale throughout the exhibition period.
The 2019 awards are sponsored by the Friends of Rotorua Museum, Toi Ohomai, Lockwood and More FM.
