The “Salon de Refuses” at Riverrun Gallery in Lambertville has become something of a great local tradition. Initiated about 10 years ago, it provides an opportunity for paintings not accepted at the prestigious Phillips Mill Show to be exhibited at the spacious Riverrun Gallery.
Gallery owner Ty Hodanish wanted to maintain this tradition, realizing that so many great works are rejected at Phillips Mill because of the sheer volume of entries. So the Salon is a second chance to let everyone view some really great art.
Popular with both artists and the public, this year’s salon presents over 75 works in a broad range of subjects and styles.
The Salon runs through Oct. 18. Riverrun Gallery is located at the Laceworks, 287 South Main St. (Rt. 29), Lambertville. 609-397-3349; www.riverrungallery.net.
