Closing Reception 
Saturday, October 28, 2023
Noon – 5 pm

Voss Gallery and Metal Haus Gallery present “Refusés of the Bay,” a collaborative art project of two curated exhibitions by Bay Area artists whose work was inexplicably overlooked by the jurors of The de Young Open 2023.

“Refusés of the Bay” is a tribute to the 1863 Salon des Refusés, which showcased rejected artwork from the highly acclaimed Paris Salon, featuring a staggering two-thirds of the submitted work that was not initially chosen. This renegade art fair included emerging works from James McNeill Whistler, Édouard Manet, Camille Pissarro, and other world-renowned artists whose careers took off after the show.

This year, the de Young Museum received over 7,700 submissions to its triennial open call for community artists and fewer than 900 were selected. To narrow the gap, Voss Gallery and Metal Haus Gallery are partnering to provide platforms for the work of other exceptional local artists to be shown.

SKY 
February 18th – March 26th, 2023
Artist Talks and Live Music!
SKY is the culmination of The Drawing Room’s exhibition series at 780 Valencia Street about the environment, following LANDAdaptations, and their most recent show, SEA.
In these exhibitions, the curators ask artists to think about the following questions: What is possible? How have we, as artists, been impacted by environmental degradation and climate change? How are we impacting the environment in our art practice and daily existence? How can our work and art communicate awareness and the specific needs for change? What is the call to action? 
Art can impress upon us in a way that data and graphs often fail to and can appeal to our senses and engage us cognitively in new ways. The Drawing Room is asking artists to bring works that will create an impression and create impact.
