Inspired by the French tradiotion of "salon d'art"  Gallery70 presents every summer an art saloon with recent artworks by our artists 

a little history 

From 1725 the exhibitions were held in the room called the salon carré in the Louvre and became known simply as the salon. This later gave rise to the generic French term of ‘salon’ for any large mixed art exhibition. By about 1860 the number of artists being excluded from the official salon became so great and such a scandal that in 1863 the government was forced to set up an alternative, to accommodate the refused artists. This became known as the salon des refusés. Three further salons des refusés were held in 1874, 1875 and 1886.
In 1903 the salon d’automne was founded, also as an alternative exhibition for innovatory artists. It was there that fauvism came to public attention in 1905. The salon d’automne continues to be held in Paris every year. From then on salon became a generic French term for a large mixed exhibition.  ( extracted from Tate )
