Salon Announcement Countdown

Published June 29, 2012

The countdown begins! We are only five days away from announcing the winners of the Art Renewal Center 2011/2012 International Salon Competition. A.R.C. quickly realized the importance of a growing movement of living artists who, using their own voice and current subject matter, are advancing art into a new frontier. It seemed a perfect opportunity to try and recapture the excitement of the famous Paris Salons of the 19th Century, where all the greatest artists would compete. Now about to announce the winners for the Salon's eighth year, the Art Renewal Center received over 2100 entries and will be showcasing only 500 of the best works in this monumental competition.
To all interested parties, this is your last chance to order the 2011/2012 International Salon Catalogue at the pre-order price. Containing over 200 pages of the best work being created by living artists today, click here to order your copy now.

At the Edge: The Art of the Fantastic is now in full swing

Published June 21, 2012

This year, the Association of Fantastic Art in coordination with the Allentown Art Museum, Pennsylvania, USA, has put together a groundbreaking exhibition, AT THE EDGE: THE ART OF THE FANTASTIC, which will take place from June 3rd through September 9th, 2012. This exhibition gambits the timeline of this genre, including over 150 painting from the Romantics and Pre-Raphaelites through the Golden Age of Illustration to the present.
"I was very impressed with At the Edge. Not only were the works imaginative, ambitious, and highly skilled, the orchestration showed a great connection between works of the past and present illustrating how artists of today have built on and evolved from the artists of the past. I believe this show to be revolutionary in quality and subject mater, attracting both an older audience who loves farmiliar stories and legends, to a youthful audience who is inspired by not only fantasy, but Science Fiction and Symbolist imagery."
-Kara Lysandra Ross

Peter Trippi, Editor of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine and author of the Catalogue Raisonne on John William Waterhouse will be speaking at the museum on The Pre-Raphaelites and 19th-Century England's Other Visionaries: Fantasy Artists Ahead of Their Time? Sunday afternoon, July 22, 2012.
