In the tradition of the great salon style exhibitions of Paris and London such as the Summer Exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, the Collins Place Gallery Summer Salon promises to be a vibrant and diverse celebration of contemporary “art made now.” 

From 170 entries received from around Australia, 65 finalists have been selected to display work in a range of media, styles and themes. Three prizes will be awarded, 1st Prize - $5000; 2nd Prize - $2500; 3rd Prize - $1500. 

Three independent judges will select the winning entries; Dr Jacqueline Healy, Curator of the University of Melbourne Medical History Museum; Deborah Klein, a highly regarded artist well known for her prints and artist books and Shane Jones, a leading visual artist.

Visitors to the gallery will be able to vote for their favourite entry and the most popular artwork will receive the People’s Choice award of $1000 – to be announced at the end of the exhibition.
