The Salon des Refusés was initiated by the S.H. Ervin Gallery in 1992 in response to the large number of works entered into the Archibald and Wynne Prizes which were not selected for display in the official exhibition and has become a much-anticipated event among Sydney’s thriving arts scene. The exhibition and People’s Choice Award is an annual event, with the winner voted by visitors to the National Trust’s S.H. Ervin Gallery in Sydney.
