Being rejected by The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition has the great bonus of making you eligible to apply for the Salon Des Refuses…. This was one at the Happenstance Gallery in North London.
Happenstance Gallery invited artists whose work was rejected for the 2013 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition to submit their work to Salon des Refusés 2013. All submissions were accepted until we ran out of space! (We took 70 pictures in total.) So the exhibition selected itself through a combination of circumstance, opportunity and providence :)
How were the top pictures decided?
Visitors were encouraged to vote for their favourite pictures. Over 900 votes were cast.
……………mine was voted number 8 out of 70!
