The Salon Exhibit: Opening Reception

Posted on August 29, 2014

Saturday, August 30, 6-10 p.m.

902 Main St.   

The third annual Salon Exhibition, inspired by the Paris Salon Des Refuses of 1863, showcases the works of local and regional artists who have not been accepted into other local juried exhibitions, including VOICES and the DuMA Biannual. Over the past three years, the Salon has given artists a second chance to present their work to the community, and has highlighted the vast growth of Dubuque’s up-and-coming art scene. The Salon was initiated in 2012 to promote and empower both emerging and experienced artists, and create new opportunities and wider exposure for participating artists.

This year, the 4400 square foot gallery space will be home to the works of 26 artists. A great variety of styles will be represented, including photography, paintings, drawings, fiber works, metal and wood sculptures, glass works, and more. The Salon not only showcases the works of new artists, but also encourages the participation of returning artists. This allows the community to witness the growth of both individual artists, and our arts community as a whole. The opening reception will be held at 902 Main St., Saturday, August 30, from 6 to 10 PM. There is a $10 suggested donation. The event will include a live mural painted by artists Jay Schleidt and Brock Muench, who have collaborated on large scale works in Iowa City, and live music from Mama Bird, a blues-rock band whose members have been performing together locally since 1997. Refreshments and hor d’oeuvres will be provided. All ages are welcome.

The Salon will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 3 to 7pm. Exhibit will close on October 4th.
