SCA Summer Show 2022

The artists are all selected and we are busy with preparations for the opening of Salon Contemporary Arts 2022 Summer Show.  For the first time we will be moving the show into the magnificent Museum of Making, Derby, UK.  This is an incredible space renovated from the old Silk Mill by the river Trent.  Their custom exhibition/event space is perfect for our show and we can't wait to welcome you all the exhibition! There is also a wonderful cafe in the museum with great food and drink - perfect to chat and admire your purchases from Salon Contemporary Arts Summer Show! 

There will be a VIP event on 13 June 2022.  This is from 5 - 8pm with a champagne reception and all of our artists will be there to share their work with you.  We will also be debuting the Salon Contemporary Arts Collectors Choice Award which will be judged by 6 of our collectors and includes a prize of £500.00.  This event is by ticket/invitation only.  Please contact us if you would like a ticket for the opening night.  We're so excited to showcase all of our selected artists with work spanning a variety of mediums - painting, printing, drawing, photography, print making and sculpture.  Along with the main gallery event there will also be a Print Salon where you can purchase prints and selected merchandise with prices to suit most budgets.

What our clients have to say:

"Just wanted to share with you how wonderful your exhibition was.

I must say initially I had some reservations about attending with the current situation, but I can clearly say no one, including myself would have needed to have any worries whatsoever. We were not allowed to enter until temperatures had been taken, sanitizers was used, and the path ( 1 way in, 1 way out ) was clear. I was very impressed with the way in was all so perfectly organised.

Now to the wonderful exhibition. I was very impressed with all the exhibits, but especially yours Keith, as always it was perfection, the talent you have is unbelievable, you certainly are a very gifted man. The structure you created for displaying your beautiful birds was magnificent and well thought about to create the very best.

I often think about you, as I look at my 2 beautiful meaningful pictures you sketched, please keep up the good work, and well all look forward to seeing your next creation. "


“We enjoyed the Salon Contemporary Arts Exhibition, which was very COVID safe and secure.  It was delightful to see the enthusiasm of the artists whilst discussing their work. The originality, varied range of materials used and high quality of the exhibitors in the excellent Salon surroundings, with the stunning centrepiece of flying crows, made this a must-see exhibition.
