14th Annual ARC Salon (2019-2020)


Thank you to Studio Incamminati for sponsoring this category.

The Art Renewal Center is proud to present the winners and finalists of the Drawing Category in the 14th International ARC Salon Competition. The subject matter is open in this category and may include pencil and graphite drawings, en grisaille oil paintings, as well as charcoal and silverpoint. Historically drawings have been an integral part of the creative visual process. Whether being created as studies or fully finished works in their own right, there is inherent interest in what can be created using these mediums and limited color to express artistic creation.
