"After nearly 100 years of oppression, finally artists who believe in the Realist tradition have a champion and a home."

The Art Renewal Center has pulled together an energetic, optimistic and brilliantly talented base of artists, many who run our ARC Approved™ Ateliers and devotedly paint their hearts out. As true masters in the visual arts, they are training and inspiring the next generation of artists, scholars and teachers, to protect, preserve and perpetuate traditional techniques, training and human subject matter for our culture, our society and posterity.

The ARC defines a "living master" as one who has the rare talent, experience and expertise to create great humanistic works of art that are seemingly executed with effortless perfection. One who has been trained under the rigorous academic principles of Realism, and mastered every parameter and nuance of great painting or sculpture. Some have been fortunate enough to have trained as an apprentice to a master, or study at an atelier or school outside of today's colleges and Universities that have abandoned centuries of proven artistic principles and values. With proper instruction so very difficult to find, some have trained themselves through books and countless visits to museums for intensive studies of what has been done before them. We applaud these artists, who through their heartfelt dedication have overcome the adverse effects of the modern movement. They, and the others we have yet to add to our site, are the greatest artists alive at this time. Many of them have yet to do their greatest works, but we are proud and delighted to exhibit for you their finest works to date, and to regularly add new works as they become available.

Amazingly, we at the center of this storm have happily discovered that there is truly great talent alive and well in the world. We have painstakingly identified as many of them as we can within the constraints of an educational charity with limited funding, and we are incredibly proud to present them to our many website visitors.

Below, we present to you, our ARC Living Artists™ and Living Masters™ in reverse alphabetical order, and we feel confident that each and every visitor to our Approved Artists™ and Living Masters™ gallery will have 4 or 5 favorites. Eventually we will not shrink from making hard qualitative judgments, but for the present we will be content to present them for your consideration.

We currently have three classifications for ARC artists:
ARCLA - ARC Living Artist™
ARCALM - ARC Associate Living Master™
ARCLM - ARC Living Master™
To read definitions on the artist classifications, please click here.

Following is a thumbnail of one of each of their best works of art, which is a hyperlink that you can click to enter their more complete galleries here at the ARC. If you are interested in purchasing a work, having one commissioned, or seeing what they may have available, write us at info@artrenewal.org and we'll be happy to contact the artists on your behalf. Any commissions earned by ARC are added 100% to our Scholarship or Salon fund.
