Winners of the 2011-12 ARC Salon


BEST IN SHOW

oil on canvas


The winners of this year's International Salon hosted by the Art Renewal Center were recently announced on the ARC website.  There were over 2,100 entries for this year's competition, and the works were of such high quality, that the judging committee was unable to narrow the original group of finalists to the 300 or so they expected, and instead extended the group of finalists to just over 500 of the submissions.  Those few who were chosen to receive awards deserve to be quite proud of their accomplishment.  Congratulations to all of the artists who participated!

Please visit the ARC website for the complete list of awards and winners.

Such variation of style and technique, but all equally impressive! Reminds you not only to keep improving, but that you really must find your own calligraphy.
