iMPeRFeCT Gallery invites you to see the vision of two guest curators, Virginia Maksymowicz and Simone Spicer. the brains behind Salon des Refusés Philadelphia (Exhibition of Rejects), an artist-curated exhibition of works not included in Woodmere Museum Annuals during the past five years.

Inspired by the 1863 Salon des Refusés in France, an exhibit in response to the Academy of Fine Arts’ Paris Salon exhibitionwhich showed the works of the artists not included in the exhibit. Like the Parisians, Philadelphia artists refuse to be refused and Salon des Refusés Philadelphia was born.

The range of works alone is worth a peek… before you take off for the beach, visit us one more time!  Please make note of our Summer Hours for July:  FRI – SAT, 1 – 6pm. or by appointment.
