Although Masters were present by invitation only, the doors were open to nearly 2,000 professional faux and decorative artists for two exhilarating days of demonstrations, theatre presentations and fellowship with artists from around the globe.

A private welcome ceremony was held the evening prior to opening day allowing Masters to be honored by Faux Effects International. Additionally, select local interior designers; architects and builders were invited for a sneak peek at the latest trends in decorative finishing.

On Saturday morning, Masters arrived on site greeted by record-breaking crowds in line at the registration kiosks. Quite possibly the largest gathering of faux and decorative artists in the history of the industry, Meeting of the Masters featured ongoing demonstrations by the world’s most highly regarded artistic masters. Additionally, many of the Masters invited fellow gifted artisans to participate within their demonstration areas, adding significant energy to the star-studded weekend.

Remarkable finishes, as well as fine art, were demonstrated throughout the two-day event using state-of-the-art materials and application techniques. Theater presentations provided additional enlightenment on a variety of popular topics including stenciling, finishing trends, interior design influences, furniture restoration, using decorative painting as a design solution, Western art, European technique with American technology, trompe l’oeil and marbling.

Dallas sparkled as guests arrived in “Denim and Diamonds” at the Master’s Soiree on Saturday evening. Grammy-nominated, George Anderson’s “Signature Band” welcomed guest saxophonist Bob Marx, Master and director of The Finishing School, at the grand gala. The magical atmosphere made memories for a lifetime!

Two abstract public murals featured artwork by hundreds of guests on each day. Faux Effects previewed new SuperCreme Artist Paints and professional easels that will be introduced in first quarter 2008 to rave reviews. Both murals will be displayed at Faux Effects International headquarters in Vero Beach, FL.

On Sunday, Masters and their guests in full attendance gathered for a final farewell at Antonio’s Restaurant on Addison Circle. Glasses were raised in camaraderie celebrating a successful Meeting of the Masters 2007 and looking forward to the next gathering.
