Salon Hanging

About this exhibition

The biennial Salon Hanging is a floor to ceiling feast for the eyes. Visitors will see over 100 works of art, many from the Owens original collection first acquired in the 1880s. The collection includes eighteenth and nineteenth century European paintings, many still found in their original gilded frames, and full-scale plaster copies of classical Greek sculptures. Originally this collection was used to teach Mount Allison Fine Arts students through copying these early pieces.

The exhibition is designed and installed by the Owens’ preparator Roxie Ibbitson.
