As an alternative space, Black Cat Artspace doesn't have to answer to any particular set of aesthetics or rules, and as a result has seen a wide variety of shows, in a wide variety of mediums grace the walls over the past three and a half years.

The Salon of Inclusiveness, is a play and positive take on the Salon des Refusés:

"In 1863 two thirds of paintings presented at the Paris Salon were refused, including the works of Courbet, Édouard Manet, Camille Pissaro and Johan Jongkind. The works which didn't align with the Emperor's traditional tastes we're upon protest shown in another part of the palace as the "Salon des Refusés." The critical attention served to legitimize the emerging avant-garde in painting."

Due to the popularity of the show last year we will be hosting THREE Opening reception(s):

November 30th, 2017 - 7pm - 10:30pm
December 1st, 2017 - 7pm - 10:30pm 
December 7th, 2016 - 7pm - 10:30pm

Near the beginning of each opening there will be time for a friendly and informal critique where anyone showing can explain their work and others will have a chance to offer a critique or ask questions.

Exhibition runs from November 29th –December 31st 2017


Gallery hours: Thursday - Sunday: 2-7pm
Monday-Tuesday: Closed

We've determined a safe estimate of the usable wall space of hanging a show salon style in the space, allowing for varying sizes and shapes and have determined a set hanging fee of $25.00 per 12 inch x 12 inch square, last year some people submitted too many works so there is a limit of a maximum of 2 works per artist and no work can be over 4 and a half feet in width or height.


And like every show we host the work can be for sale, commission free!
