In the spirit of the 1863 Salon des Refuses artists rejected from the Toronto Outdoor Art exhibition create their own show.
As Napoleon III said: “Let the people judge”
The sheer number of applicants every year to the massive Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition at Nathan Phillips Square means that some of the most dynamic and expressive artists are necessarily rejected. For the last two years, a group of these passionate artists have turned their disappointment to opportunity and participated in the Rejects show.
Again this year the Rejects will take over Propeller Gallery in the centre of the Queen West core. Propeller is a long-standing artist-run space that speaks to the heart of this show.
Sixteen talented artists will be selling work that includes painting, drawing, encaustic, sculpture, and photography. The Rejects show is a must-see event for anyone looking to see “the other side” of the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition.
