SPAACES is thrilled to be kicking off the upcoming season with the second annual group exhibition, The Salon II. This show is modeled after the great success of Le Salon Tout Inclus (The All-Inclusive Exhibit) in 2018, and will be a continued annual, inaugural exhibition.

We are welcoming all Florida artists to participate in this exhibit, regardless of experience, age, professionalism, training, or subject matter. This exhibition celebrates a mix of outsider and professional art together, endorsing equality, inclusivity and affordability in the context of contemporary art.

“The success of last years exhibition was a huge surprise,” says Marianne Chapel, founder of SPAACES.  “The turnout of participants, both artists and collectors, inspired the creation of an annual installment of this kind. By bringing these separate works under one roof again, I aim to curate another thought provoking exhibition that presents viewers with a wide range of art styles to consider, without the hierarchical system often associated with professional art galleries. The reactions from viewers last year was so positive, we expect to have an even wider scale of participation this year.”

“Tenee’ Hart’s site specific, fiber art installations are something not normally seen in Sarasota. We’re thrilled to be able to represent this kind of artist and installation in our SPAACES gallery and bring the community something exciting, new and unique to talk about.” – Marianne Chapel

 

Laurie Maves: Salt Life

April 2019

Salt in its natural form is a crystalline mineral, essential for life in general. We are made of salt, we preserve with salt, wars have been fought over salt. We avoid pouring salt in our wounds, we throw it over our shoulder for good luck, while it still inevitably runs within our tears.

Truly Valued: Who Am I? 

January 2019

The inspiration behind this exhibition came from the Andrew Edlin Gallery (with permission) in New York, who created, “Et Tu, Art Brute?” in November 2017. 

The curator Jamie sterns writes,  “What defines being an artist today? How does it feel to make art? Who is allowed to participate, and on what terms? This show has a very simple premise; we invited everyone—no matter their background, ability, level of success or anonymity—to contribute an original work of art.”
