In conjunction with the Brisbane Portrait Prize, the RQAS is proud to present the Salon des Refusés at the Petrie Terrace Gallery.

This exhibition is open to artists who entered the Brisbane Portrait Prize, but whose works did not get selected as finalists.

Opening night will be 7pm Friday the 9th of October at Petrie Terrace Gallery and the Salon des Refusés will be opened by the Lord Mayor. Due to COVID restrictions we will only be able to have a limited number of tickets available so we will also be holding Saturday Wine & Cheese afternoons in the Gallery. These Saturday Sessions will be from 2 to 4pm, on the 17th, 24th and 31st of October.

You and your guests can book into any of the ticketed events through Eventbrite on the following link. https://petrieterracegallery.eventbrite.com.au
