Congrats to D.K Richardson, a finalist in the ARC Salon!
The Foundation for the Art Renewal Center, ARC, supports traditional realism and technical mastery in the visual arts. Advisers and judges include professional classically trained artists, art historians and scholars, whose judgment is based on years of experience and research, with expertise and standards for reviewing and approving schools, artists, and ateliers that foster the classical tradition in art.
With over 2100 entries this year, the competition was steeper then ever. Even with expanding the finalist cut off from 300 + images to over 500, ARC is still only including the top 24% of works submitted and almost all the works were good to great, so congratulations to all!
The Foundation for the Art Renewal Center, a 501(c)3) is a private, not-for-profit educational foundation, with a mission. ARC was founded in 1999 to present responsible opposing views to the modernist art establishment. The ARC website, www.artrenewal.org
has grown to 500,000,000 hits per year with 350,000 visitors each month and is a hub for artists, educators, gallery owners, curators and art lovers alike.
Stay tuned for the final announcements of placements and categories. Once again, way to go, Debra!
