The Art Renewal Center (ARC) is a highly regarded organization dedicated to the renewal of traditional art education and training. In their 12th International ARC Salon Competition, there were 1,006 finalist works (representing 32% of works submitted) by 640 artists from 63 countries. I was thrilled to be among the finalists and to have my painting, Blowing Smoke (Portrait of Aaron Shikler), awarded the Collection Magazine Award and Dual Category Award.
From the award winners and the balance of the 1,006 finalist works, ARC is in the process of selecting between 75-100 works to be included in the live exhibit of the ARC Salon that will travel from the Salmagundi Club in New York, New York to the MEAM Museum in Barcelona, Spain.
I am honored and pleased to announce that my painting Blowing Smoke (Portrait of Aaron Shikler) has been selected for inclusion in what promises to be an exceptional exhibit.
The 12th International ARC Salon Exhibition will be on view at the Salmagundi Club, NYC from May 12 – June 1, with the public opening reception on Saturday, May 13th from 11am to 3pm. The works will then travel to the MEAM Museum (European Museum of Modern Art) in Barcelona, Spain, where they will be on view from September 23 – November 27, 2017.
