SALON 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.

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 and now is recognized as the most important and significant gathering of decorative painters in the world.

The purpose of SALON is to keep the art of decorative painting lively and vigorous, create public awareness and to elevate the level of skill of this ancient craft. Participants vest their respective resources and time voluntarily to attend this renowned event each year as a reflection of their passion for the craft.

Participants of SALON include teachers from schools as well as those who are independent commercial craftspeople. 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.

SALON events historically showcase well over 100 premier decorative painters from over twenty- five countries. The likes of Master Dutch Painters, four Best Craftsmen in France Award Winners, Published Authors, Smithsonian Educators, and some of Britain's most decorated painters congregate to contribute technique, information and vision.

The opportunity enhances and extends the level of communication between serious and committed craftsmen.

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.

SALON is free to the public.

Interior design, Architects, design students, artists, building industry, homeowners or anyone else looking to be inspired by these amazing talents should come.
