Final Five Works Added for Live ARC Salon

October 30, 2015

The final works have been added to the list of paintings to be exhibited in the traveling exhibition for the 2014/2015 ARC Salon.

Today we are adding ARC Living Master™ Donato Giancola's Second Place Imaginative Realism Winner, Conor Walton's Third Place Still Life Winner, the honorable mention in the Imaginative Realism Category by Dorian Vallejo, a Chairman's Choice Award Winner by Seth Haverkamp, and ARC Living Master™ Joseph McGurl's American Fine Art Magazine Award of Excellence Winner.
"Building upon the theme of 'painting between the lines' it was a thrill to create twelve images interpreting the world created by the writer George R.R. Martin and depicted in the HBO series A Games of Thrones. These twelve images would go on to become the 2015 calendar for A Song of Ice and Fire, the title of the literary series from which the HBO show is based on. The forging of the throne, an act frequently referred to within the novels, but never visualized, offered me an opportunity to delve into the narrative found in the novels regarding political power and to add a visual experience beyond just bringing lines of words to life."

We have received a number of requests from artists who have been asked to participate in the live exhibition if we will provide an opportunity for them to sell their paintings. Because of this we have decided to do so. Many of the works on exhibit are also available for sale, a full list of these works can be found at the below link.
