New ARC Purchase Award

Published October 21, 2016

We are pleased to announce the next purchase award for the 12th International ARC Salon Competition. Julie Bell’s painting titled, White Velvet has now been added to the ARC Collection.

"This horse's name is Charmer and he belongs to my friend, Whip. As I painted and brought this image to life in my studio,I also brought along the very morning I met Charmer. Every time I look at this painting, all of my senses replay an exact recording of that day's particular unique quality of air and sun, the pounding beats of Charmer's hooves, the water from the last night's rain splashing on me, the excitement in my heart at seeing Charmer prance around, snorting and delighting in these same elements. I'm overcome with gratitude for that moment.”
All purchase awards will be exhibited at the live exhibition for the ARC Salon which will travel from the Salmagundi Club in New York City to the MEAM museum in Barcelona in 2017. More purchase award announcements to follow.
