BROOKLYN - Art lovers are stepping outside the box of their typical galleries and into a home to shop for their next painting.

The Artists Salon and Sale puts buying artwork into a cozy and intimate brownstone setting in Park Slope. Artists can show off their work and buyers can meet the creators behind their favorite pieces.

Buyers say the setting allows them to imagine the paintings in their own homes because they can already see it on the walls of another.

The event was organized by Flatbush Artists Studio Tours. The next salon will be Dec. 15 and 16.
