New Salon: A Contemporary View
On view through August 19, 2024
Asheville Art Museum
Asheville, North Carolina

“The New Salon” takes the tradition of the salon in art history as a site of rebellion against the norm, infusing it with the diverse and often fantastical narratives prevalent in New Contemporary figurative art. This exhibition features an eclectic mix of artists working in Pop Surrealism, Street Art, and Graffiti, among others.
