Salon des Independants

Hygienic Art welcomes all artists to submit to our annual Salon des Independants exhibition! The exhibit remains the heart of Hygienic Art XXXIX, which hosts a bevy of arts and performance related events that bring a festive and invigorating spirit to New London right when post-holiday doldrums begin to fester.

The show runs Saturday, January 27 through Saturday, February 10. The rules remain the same: All Are Welcome, One Piece Per Artist, No Judge, No Jury, No Fee, No Censorship! Hygienic Galleries will open at 8am and pieces will be accepted through 6pm that evening. Show opens at 7pm! The show opens soon thereafter. Be a part of an art spectacle like no other!
