Animals

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Animals

The Art Renewal Center is proud to present the winners and finalists of the Animal Category in the 15th International ARC Salon Competition. This category includes all animal art; any paintings, sculptures or drawings where an animal or animals are the central focus of the work. Animal art is an important way for the general public to stop and appreciate animal life in a way that they may not do in their everyday lives. It draws attention to the importance of animal rights and draws interest to the other living creatures that share or have shared our world in both reality and myth, demonstrating that animals are every bit as worthy of being subjects of fine art.
