2013 Salon des Refusés

S.H. Ervin Gallery, selected works

Martin Tighe's portrait of writer Gideon Haigh, was selected for exhibition in the Salon des Refusés. This exhibition was initiated by the S.H. Ervin Gallery in 1992 in response to the large number of works entered into the Archibald Prize not selected for hanging in the official exhibition. The Salon des Refusés exhibition at the S.H. Ervin Gallery has established an excellent reputation that rivals the selections of the ‘official’ prize exhibition and is often cited as a more lively and discerning selection.
