Reclining in White
by Jeremy Lipking

We would like to officially welcome Jeremy Lipking as an ARC Living Master™.

Jeremy Lipking has emerged as one of the country’s premier realist artists. His talent, which rivals that of the late nineteenth century painterly realists such as John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla and Anders Zorn, is outstanding for a painter of any age. It is all the more remarkable since he is only thirty years old. A virtuoso artist, Lipking’s canvases convey the magical aura of convincing imagery emerging out of a field of paint.

New ARC Living Artist™ Mary Jane Q Cross

Sing Over Me
by Mary Jane Q Cross

We would like to officially welcome Mary Jane Q Cross as an ARC Living Artist™.

Q Cross’s work embraces beauty personified in primarily womanly subjects on an emotional and intimately respectful level. The models’ spirits and souls are loved under her fingers. This is literal, as the artist paints with her fingers due to a severe tremor that restricts the use of brushes. The artist’s career did not end but has persevered to inspire a documentary, 18 months in the making, on her career headed for PBS this summer of 2011.
