Still Life

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Still Life

The Art Renewal Center is proud to present the winners and finalists of the Still Life Category in the 15th International ARC Salon Competition. From the traditional to the inventive, works may range from a single object to a room's full interior. This genre has held international appeal and usually imbues inanimate objects with symbolic meaning, giving individual or groups of objects emotional energy and evoking feeling or intellectual interest in the viewer.
