is a gathering of dedicated
decorative painters from around the world coming together to exhibit
their work and discuss old and new techniques, products, and information
in the field. The Salon, which began in 1992 in Belgium with a small
gathering of professionals, reconvened in 1996 and has been coming
together in growing numbers every year since.
The Salon is now recognized
as the most important and significant gathering of decorative painters
in the world.
Participants of The Salon
include teachers from schools as well as those who are independent
commercial craftspeople. The Salon is a way for some of the most unique
traditions within the field of decorative arts to be shared amongst one
another and ultimately, passed onto participants’ students.
The opportunity enhances
and extends the level of communication between serious and committed
The Salon is also a way for
visitors and the outside public to experience the high quality of work
present and meet the real masters of this craft. Ongoing demonstrations
and an exhibit hall allow visitors and participants to view works
specifically created for The Salon.
