International Salon 2016 St.Petersburg Russia. Host-Tatiana Rugers

Salon 2016 was organized and hosted by Salon member Tatiana Rugers. It was held in St.Petersburg Russia in beautiful and one of the most famous historical exhibition centers of Russia- House of Union of Artists in St.Petersburg which was built in 1820. In 1833, Tsar Nicholas I formally confirmed the Society’s existence by law and placed it under his personal protection. Read more here—>

Great Salon 2016! Great art, great participants and great location! We had about 100 participants : artists and official friends of Salon from 20 countries. Theme of Salon 2016 was “Art and the City”- encouraging Salon artists from many countries to create an exposition art panel which would reflect a favorite piece of art/monument/architecture of each artist’s city and country.

During 4 days of Salon 2016: on the first floor of our venue the visitors could see Exhibition panels of Salon members, Master classes and common mural painting; On the second floor – live demonstrations by all participants.

Three year before Salon 2016 I started to work on organizing Salon-festival in St.Petersburg Russia. ( на русском -внизу). Yes, it was a lot of work , but I knew that none of Salon members visited or exhibited in Russia and everyone had a dream to visit and exhibit in Russia. I believed that I could make those dreams come true and organize Salon in Russia. I want to thank every participant and every instructor of master-classes of Salon 2016 -you brought your energy and talents and shared it with everyone! I want to thank our sponsors who added to success of Salon 2016 in St.Petersburg. No matter how big or small your contribution was- all was very valuable. I want to thank founders of Salon who many years ago created concept and ground “stones” for all Salon shows to follow. Salon 2016 was spectacular event! Yet again, our 21st addition – Salon 2016 in St.Petersburg Russia demonstrated it’s incredible magic of talents, creativity and great friendship of Artists from 20 countries! Thank you to St.Petersburg and Union of Artists of St.Petersburg who opened the doors of a great historical venue and gave me support on organization of Salon 2016!
