I am happy to announce that I will be attending my 4th annual international gathering of decorative and applied artists – THE SALON.
This year hosted in New York City, the event attracts more than 80 presenting artists from 16 countries in Europe, Asia and North America for three days of demonstrations, master classes and lectures, in addition to the scores of visitors who attend to learn and interact.
Always an intriguing experience, I invite you to attend if you are in the city April 13 – 16. Visitors to the event are encouraged to engage and ask questions.

Now in its 22nd year, The Salon is a gathering of dedicated decorative painters and applied artists 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 an important and significant gathering of decorative painters and applied artists.
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. It is an opportunity to extend and enhance communication between serious and committed craftspeople.
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.
