About SALON

The 27th International Decorative Painters Salon "SALON"

The International Decorative Painters Salon brings together master decorative painters from over 25 different countries who share their work and techniques in this exhibition and live painting event.   Participants of Salon include independent artisans, master technicians and teachers including finishers, restoration artisans, sign painters, scenic artists, gilders, and muralists.  
Salon showcases many of the unique traditions of decorative painting, which are  shared amongst the participants, and ultimately, passed onto their students and apprentices, inspiring the future generations of skilled artisans.
