New ARC Living Master™

Published June 18, 2013

We would like to welcome Robert Liberace as an ARC Living Master™. Liberace is known for his inspiring and information-packed teaching style. Through teaching classes and workshops in the U.S. and abroad, and with the addition of his instructional dvd series and even the occasional webinar, Rob encourages artists around the world to explore the wonders of the classic tradition expressed in a fresh and current manner. Both his art and my teaching express the richness and rewards of a life filled with art.
Born and raised in Rockland County, New York, Rob was introduced to the world of art world through an old library copy of Hogarth's "Dynamic Figure Drawing" almost four decades ago. In the early 2000's he began devoting time to portraiture and garnered several awards from the Portrait Society of America's annual International Portrait Competition. His painting "Russell" received "First Honors" in the show in 2001, and then in 2002 the portrait of his friend Robert won "Best in Show". In 2003 a portrait of Steven Honigberg, cellist for the National Symphony Orchestra, won the "Grand Prize" in the competition. Other commissioned portraits include those of Marc Pachter, director of the National Portrait Gallery, former President George H. Bush, and Ambassador Sol Linowitz.
In recent years his focus has leaned toward figure drawing and painting. His work is represented by the John Pence Gallery in San Francisco, the Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale and the M gallery in Charleston.
