DESCRIPTION

Since its inception, SaLon Gallery has been unique in its approach to art and the gallery concept. It is solely devoted to debuting and promoting the work of talented recent graduates, emerging from the exciting and dynamic UK graduate art scene. Allowing them the experience of exhibiting in a commercial gallery environment, offering them the support and mentoring they need to take their first steps to becoming successful professional contemporary artists. The exhibited art is derived from different and diverse media resulting in emblematic and distinctly poignant works, narratives about discovering and representing self - identity that intermittently make humoristic incursions into political and cultural topics.

In line with its concept SaLon Gallery recently organised a debut solo exhibition of one of the UK's most exciting young contemporary artists, Sarah Maple. The exhibition displayed a selection of the best of Maple's work from the past three years. Her work primarily falls into three often overlapping categories: religion, the cult of celebrity and self.
