Well, once again, none of the five images I submitted to the Scarab Club's Annual Photography Exhibition were invited. So, here they are in their inglorious glory. Anyone else who submitted images to the SC and were "not invited" feel free to post them here at the Salon des Refuses. Congrats to those that had work accepted for the exhibit 😁

Welcome to "The Not Invited Online Gallery" or the “Salon des Refusés” which showcases images by nine Detroit-area photographers who recently received the dreaded NOT INVITED email from entrythingy.com in response to ALL of their entries to one of the most prestigious annual photo exhibits in Detroit, the Scarab Club Annual Photo Exhibit 2018. This online gallery is an opportunity for the uninvited group of photographers to showcase the work that was rejected, and for the rest of us to see what we might otherwise have missed.

Please note: this online gallery is not affiliated with or associated in any way with the Scarab Club, nor does it represent any criticism of the Scarab Club or the juror for the selections made. Having exhibited work in many venues since 1974, and having curated or co-curated several shows over the years, I understand the extraordinary task that jurors are faced with when hundreds of images are submitted for an exhibit and gallery space is limited. We all understand that tough choices need to be made. But the online world offers us opportunities not available in the past to display outstanding work that might never have been seen by the public in a physical gallery, and should be shared.

The origin of the name Salon des Refusés (French for "exhibition of rejects”) was the formation of an exhibition of works rejected by the jury of the official Paris Salon in 1863 which was then shown at the Palais de l'Industrie in Paris. The most famous “reject” of the Paris Salon show was “Le dejeuner sur l’herbe” – The Luncheon on the Grass - by Edouard Manet, shown here.

My sincere thanks to all the photographers who have contributed their work to our version of Salon des Refusés!

I hope you enjoy your visit to the gallery.

Peace,

Jim Aho
