Opening Reception & Awards Ceremony: Young Contemporaries
Thursday, March 29, 2012
HICA Galleries, 161 Calhoun Street
Each spring, current College of Charleston students are eligible to submit their recent work to the Young Contemporaries annual, giving them an opportunity to have their work chosen by a nationally prominent juror and exhibit in a professional gallery setting. For the 2012 Young Contemporaries exhibition, NY visiting artist, Julie Heffernan, has been chosen to select the student works. To learn more about the submissions process, please click here.
Concurrent with Young Contemporaries 2012 will be the Salon des Refusés exhibition, showing in the Hill Exhibition Gallery within The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Ctr. for the Arts. The origin of the “Salon des Refusés” dates to Paris in 1863, when artists who had been rejected from the official Salon caused such a protest that Emperor Napoleon III ordered another exhibition held for them. Among the painters in this “Salon des Refusés” were Camille Pissaro, Henri Fantin-Latour, James M. Whistler, and Edouard Manet.
