One Night Stand





Dennis, MA (April 2, 2009) –

Ten accomplished Cape Cod artists will participate in the very first Salon des Refusés Cape Cod at the Cape Cod Museum of Art’s One Night Stand Thursday, April 2, 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Inspired by the original 1863 Salon des Refusés in Paris that was formed by artists rejected by the official Paris Salon, the Cape Cod version in 2009 will deal with the same issue – visibility. The 2009 Salon was initiated by Cape Cod artists Elaine Cohen and Robert John Cook.

Participating artists are: Elaine Cohen, mixed media collage; Robert John Cook, painting; Tessa Marie D’Agostino, pen and ink drawing; Mary Doering. photographic collage; Jay Elliott, photography; Coco Larrain, painting; Washington Ledesma, painting; Jackie Reeves, painting; Cristina Reverdy, painting; and Sally Harvey, painting.

Each artist will be on hand to exhibit a representative work as well as their portfolio. To that end, every gallery owner, collector and art-lover from Provincetown to Boston is invited to attend the Salon des Refusés Cape Cod. The evening is hosted by Laurel Labdon with entertainment by Christine Rathbun,  Emily Rose, Lee Roscoe, and music by the DUNKLORDZS.


The common thread that binds this diverse group of emerging and more established artists is the quality of excitement, passion and deep emotion they pour into their work. For more information on the artists and links to their websites, please visit
