ARC is pleased to present the winners and finalists of the 2014/2015 International Salon Competition. With an approximate 2,500 entries this year by over 1,050 artists, the competition was steeper than ever. This year we have included 789 finalist works.

For the first time many of the works from the ARC Salon will be exhibited in a live traveling exhibition that will start at the MEAM museum in Barcelona, Spain where it will be on view from November 17-December 28th to celebrate an intense collaboration between Europe and America for representational art. The ARC salon works will be mounted at the same time the museum will mount the 8th Figurativas Painting and Sculpture Competition, organized by the Foundation of the Art and the Artists, which along with the ARC Salon is the other most important competition of representational art, where more than 2300 artists from more than 90 countries participate. The 8th Figurativas Painting and Sculpture Competition, Figurativas 2015 will run between November 17 – Januray 10th. The Official Ceremony Awards of ARC Salon winners and Figurativas 2015 winners will take place as one tremendous event on November 20th, 2015 at 19:00 hours at the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) in Barcelona and a Forum of American and European representational artists will take place the following day on Saturday the 21st. Works for this exhibit are still being selected though the MEAM Purchase award and the ARC Purchase awards shown below will all be included. The ARC Salon portion of the show will then travel to New York City, where it will hang at the Salamagundi Club from January 18th – February 4th.

2014/2015 International ARC Salon / Salmagundi Club / NY

2014/2015 International ARC Salon Exhibition & Events

The Art Renewal Center, a 501C3 non-profit educational foundation dedicated to the renewal of traditional training techniques in the visual arts is pleased to present the winners and finalists of the 2014/2015 International ARC Salon Competition. There was an approximate 2,500 entries this year by over 1,050 artists. The works of contemporary realism featured in this upcoming exhibit just returned from a show hosted at the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) in Barcelona, Spain. While there, the ARC Salon winners were shown alongside winners from the 2015 Figurativas competition, a prestigious European representational art competition. The combining of these two shows was a historic event for the representational art movement of Post Contemporary Art, and constituted one of the largest collaborative shows on contemporary realism in the Western world. The ARC portionwill hang at the Salmagundi Club from January 18th to February 4th, 2016.
ARC will be planning several lectures and educational events during the time the show will be in New York including a collaboration with the Da Vinci Initiative, whose mission is to bring skill-based techniques like those embodied by the works in the ARC Salon into K-12 classrooms. Tickets for all events are available for sale/RSVP through the ARC website. All proceeds will help fund the ARC and help to pay for the costs involved with running the show.
The Salmagundi Club is located on 47 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003.
