Events in October 2014:


The Gualala Salon

    & Salon des Refusés


You are cordially invited to the 2014 Gualala Salon & Salon des Refusés Opening Reception Friday, October 3 at 5:00 p.m. in the Burnett Gallery and Elaine Jacob Foyer at the Gualala Arts Center. The Gualala Salon exhibit is a juried and judged fine art show is made possible by the generous contributions of Jack Chladek, of Jack's Gualala Pharmacy, and others.

The famous Salon des Refusés of 1863 in Paris inspired the format of the show. In 1863, the French Academy rejected more than half of the art entries. Artists like Manet, Pissarro, Courbet and Whistler were rejected from the 'official' exhibition because the Academy jury considered their works subversive and too radical. Napolean III felt the jury was too strict and offered a compromise in the alternative Salon allowing the public to decide for themselves.

All works are juried by judge Larry Thomas into the Gualala Salon (accepted work) or the Salon des Refusés (rejected work). We respect the judge's decisions and recognize that selection into the Gualala Salon is a wonderful honor... but we also recognize the space limitations of the Burnett Gallery and the reality that a lot of good artwork will have to be rejected. We want those works to still be on show throughout Gualala Arts Center as part of the Salon de Refusés. In this way, all art submitted and all artists are represented in the exhibit, either in the Gualala Salon proper or in the Salon des Refusés.

More details about the show is on the Gualala Arts website. gualalaarts.org.

The exhibit will be shown from 10/03/2014 to 11/22/2014.

The Portrait Project

- The Photos

The Portrait Project has three-phases. Phase one is taking portraits of people in the community. Phase two is enrolling artists in any medium to interpret the portraits and phase three is an exhibit starring each portrait and the interpretive work together. The exhibit is scheduled for May, 2015, at Gualala Arts.

Phase one of this project is scheduled for October 25 and 26 when portrait photographer Harvey Mendleson will be available at the Gualala Art Center to take portraits of anyone in the community interested in participating. Sitters should come as you are. Don’t worry about hair or make-up, just plan to have fun. Mendleson uses a single drape in each photo as the unifying element tying the project together. The cost to have a portrait taken is $20 and the sitter will receive a copy of their portrait.
