The Salon 2005 is dedicated to the memory of our friend and Master Decorator

Tommy Valentine.

He past away January  4th 2005 at the age of 90. Rochdale in Lancashire, England. He will always be in our memory as an outstanding painter who's heart was so attached to the Salon. He was present at nearly all of the Salons. He received the "Lifetime Achievement Award" in 1998 in Alexandria. At the first American Salon. We will remember him also because of his enthusiasm for the Decorative Crafts, and the joyful spirit he always contributed to every painter he came across.

 
 
Obviously we all had so many laughs with this man, he was a joy and compliment to the Salon. His passing is a great sad loss to the Salon and to the many he has know during his life.
 

We will make a special moment during the upcoming Salon in Philadelphia in April.
